We're happy to announce release 0.71.4 of Task Coach. This release
fixes a few bugs.

Bugs fixed:
* Opening an old .tsk file with missing e-mail attachments would crash
Task Coach.
* Don't throw exception when showing an (error) message while synchronizing.
* When merging from the same file multiple times, update the existing
items instead of duplicating them.
* Don't set negative priorities to zero in the task editor (Linux only).
* Save the column width of the first column when automatic resizing of
columns is off.
* Actually delete tasks and notes when SyncML is disabled.
* Do not create subitems in two steps, this is counter intuitive.
* Properly iterate over the open viewers with Ctrl-PgDn and Ctrl-PgUp.
* Update the task viewer when a note is deleted from a task.
* Update the tray icon tool tip when deleting an overdue task.
* Wrap long lines in description tool tip windows.

Feature added:
* Add a "Purge deleted items" entry in the File menu for people who
have been using Task Coach with SyncML disabled.

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/Vista, Mac OS X, and Linux (Debian and RPM

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, Task Coach developers
