I'm not sure if it's because it's Java-based, but I'm frustrated by the lack of normal Windows behavior in ProjectLibre. Cntrl-S does not save, Cntrl-X does not cut (it just copies to buffer, the Cntrl-V pastes but leaves original cell as it was), ESC doesn't exit out of dialog boxes, arrow up/down moves the cursor sometimes but not always, highlighting several task rows and choosing to "insert" doesn't insert several rows but instead just adds one (and at unexpected spots), moving/copying a task to an existing summary task does not adjust predecessors for existing tasks in that summary task. Most of this I think is related to it being in Java (would it be that much harder to build for Windows too? I know, easier asked than done...) It's all just a bit too messy to recommend. However, considering that it's free and Project starts at 600 dollars, I'll keep suffering through for at least my current project, since feature-wise it does seem fairly on par with Project.

    Very good start. Excellent software, I can understand the hardwork that has gone behind this. Would appreciate if you can allow a display option on the date - currently it is US display with time. Would have appreciated different date formats.

    This looks functionally good and aesthetically pleasing ( and I'm not intending to fault it here ) but I would say that there are a couple of features it needs to be useful for me: resource levelling being able to link from a task below another e.g. from task 7 to task 6 OR easily moving around tasks in the grid e.g. via drag-and-drop. PERT / network is in there though which is missing from some other offerings and the WBS view is a nice addition. On an unrelated note, I really don't 'get' the ribbon interface even if certain companies have hyped it up: surely a good ol'-fashioned menu option would be an easy customisation... having said that the ribbon implemetation here is fairly logically laid out.

    Interesting soft, looking for learning it, and it's free - awesome for beginners.

    Upon startup, a window pops up requiring you to agree to license terms, which are in unreadable binary. I copied and pasted to Notepad, and suddenly it's readable. Please fix this.

    congratulation for this new release. My company is using Windchill ProjectLlink & PDMLink 10.0 from PTC for Product Life Cycle Management and It would be amazing if we can manage to edit the ProjectLink Plan directly with ProjectLibre. The test I did today are working find from ProjectLink to ProjectLibre but I get a JavaNull pointer exception when I tryed to import the file in ProjectLink... I think it's not a big deal but if it's work it'll be fantastic for all the organisation to create a link between activities plan, delivrables and Task directly with all the PLM data such as Parts, documents, change management activities... Thank you for this great product
