Version 1.1 on the way!

Your editors are proud to announce that version 1.1 is almost complete! Updates to the SVN have been finished and final testing is under way and screenshots have been updated.

The major new feature in 1.1 is the ability to grow or shrink the task's sphere. A meaning can be given to this and is now displayed above the task -- along with its completeness and correctness.

The envisioned usage for this is to indicate things such as 'Risk', 'Priority', 'Importance', etc. So, a task may be made large and the meaning the user provides might be 'Risk' indicating the user believes this task is more risky.... read more

People are still download'n PrjPlanner!

The editors are extremely please to note that 75 downloads have been reached! 25 more to break 100 downloads this month would be stupendous.

But more likely would be 11 downloads that would break 900 total downloads!

Now that would be great, eh?!

0.9.2 released!

The editor proudly announce the 0.9.2 release of PrjPlanner! This release may be considered a release candidate for 1.0!

Updates since 0.9.0 include:

-- Emailing when adding or updating ToDos

-- UI usability fixes / enhancements

Posted by Quentin Crain 2007-03-11

Screenshots update for 0.9.0

All older screenshots have been removed and replaced with appropriate ones from 0.9.0.

Notice that the Tags and Backlog lists are now part of the main window.

PrjPlanner now has only 5 windows:

- Information Radiator (main win)
- Add / Update Tags
- Add / Update ToDos
- Add Task
- Help

Very simple indeed!

0.9.0 released!!

This is a major update for your editors! PrjPlanner has dropped the methodology of iterations and replaced it with tagging.

Tasks are no longer grouped into iterations but instead are tagged. Tags are then used to manage tasks.

Previous news items have fleshed this out more fully. Please review them if you desire.

All users should upgrade to 0.9.0

SVN updated: Iteration out, Tagging in

You editors are burning the candle at both ends to rip up and out iteration code and replace it with tagging code.

All iteration code is not gone. This means PrjPlanner from SVN is incompatible with your older existing XML files. To run the code in SVN, edit your XML file and remove all iteration tags and place all task tags inside of one tasks tag.

Code for tag handling does exist, but is not complete. When adding a task to the radiator or the backlog you will be asked for tags. Tags should be separated by a semi-colon ( ; ). Double-clicking on a task in the radiator will popup a dialog where you can edit its tags. Pressing 't' will bring up a list of all tags in all tasks (include backlog tasks).

Freshmeat subscriber announcement about the changes

Your editors repost here the Freshmeat announcement about the major PrjPlanner changes occurring prior to 1.0.


Dear Subscribers:

First, I thank you for your interest in PrjPlanner. It is gladdening to know that other developers are tired of the over-weight project management solutions that exist ("Agile" or not) which are foisted on us and are looking for better tools.... read more

Changes afoot for 1.0 !!!

The editors have just returned from a raucous meeting in which the direction of PrjPlanner was discussed.

It has been decided that release 1.0 will NOT include the idea of iterations, but will be replaced with tagging as the main management feature for developers.

Stay tuned and read the documents (when we post 'em that is! wink)
