Hi all,

I'm please to announce release 0.62.0 of Task Coach. This release
fixes a couple of bugs, and adds a number of features.

Bugs fixed:

* When saving timestamps in a task file, e.g. for effort start and
stop times, microseconds are no longer saved as part of the timestamp.
The microseconds caused problems when importing Task Coach data in
* When exporting tasks to HTML or CSV format from the task tree
viewer, child tasks hidden by a filter would still be exported.

Features added:

* Added Slovak translation thanks to Viliam Búr
* Printing a selection is enabled (except on Mac OSX).
* The notebook that contains the different views allows for dragging
and dropping of tabs, enabling you to create almost any layout you
like. Unfortunately, this widget does not yet provide functionality to
store the layout in the TaskCoach.ini file.
* Whether the clock icon in the task bar blinks or not is now a
setting (see Edit -> Preferences -> Window behavior.
* The toolbar buttons for 'new item', 'new sub item', 'edit item' and
'delete item' now work for tasks, effort records and categories,
depending on what view is active.
* Added a category column for task viewers.
* Added an attachment column that shows whether a task has one or more
* Added an 'Open all attachments' menu item for tasks
* Added snooze option to reminders.

Feature changed:

* Removed filter sidebar. Filter options previously available on the
sidebar are now available via the search filter on the toolbar, the
category tab and the view menu.

Dependency changed:

* Task Coach now requires wxPython 2.8.3-unicode or newer (this is
only relevant if you use the source distribution).

What is Task Coach?

Task Coach is a simple task manager that allows for hierarchical
tasks, i.e. tasks in tasks. Task Coach is open source (GPL) and is
developed using Python and wxPython. You can download Task Coach from:


In addition to the source distribution, packaged distributions are
available for Windows XP, Mac OSX, and Linux (Debian and RPM format).

Note that Task Coach is alpha software, meaning that it is wise to back
up your task file regularly, and especially when upgrading to a new release.

Cheers, Frank
