Release 0.12 - Description

Finally, the notes support ! Currently, I decided to limit them to 4000 chars, to be rom apps compatible. Other useful things are database renaming and duplicating. Also, a "Delete all done tasks" to purge your progects.

Note that there's a new internal format. Your databases should automatically convert without troubles if you used 0.11. If not, you'll have garbage on the screen. Close the project, install 0.11, open the project, close it, install 0.12, open, it should convert.... read more

Release 0.11 - Description

A bunch of features comming from the broken 0.9 and 0.10 release, and some news, like exporting a task to the ToDo builtin app. No category support for now.

Next release will be about adding note support.

Crashs with 0.9 or 0.10, READ THIS

You'll find a recovery version of Progect in download area. Use it only if you have troubles with V0.9 and V0.10, like projects you can't open anymore, or Progect crashing on start.
Install this one, close the actual project if it's open, then open each project.
You can then reinstall V0.8, which is stable. Don't try V0.9 and V0.10 anymore !
Don't continue using the recovery version after you've opened your projects.

For all those who are using V0.9 or V0.10, please revert to V0.8, which is the last stable release. With the introduction of preferences saving, I introduced a malicious bug that can cause data loss, and even a hard reset !

Posted by Laurent Burgbacher 2000-08-18


For those who run V0.9, please update immediately to V0.10, or stop using V0.9. You risk a data loss !!! The bug SHOULD be fixed in 0.10.
Remember, no warranty........... ;-)

Release 0.9 - Description

rel 0.9
08/17/2000 : NEW FEATURES
- select a task, write on graffity :
"space" : move the task to the right
"backspace" : move the task to the left
"return" : create a subtask (V0.8)
anything : create a task (V0.8)
- on the task properties form, a return closes the form. So
you can create a task by starting writing, and if the
priority and due date is good, just end with return to
go back to project view.
- in preferences, always warn when deleting a single task
- save the application preferences (warn when deleting)
- save the project preferences (display due dates, priority,
hide done tasks, print year)
- Progect now has an icon ;-)
CHANGES since V0.8
- on the task properties form, just 1 line for the description.
This field is not intended for long text, just for a brief
description. There will be a note possibility soon.
- fixed crash when trying to move down a task that has children

Release 0.2 - Bugs

A bunch of bugs have been found on this release. Mainly, do not try to delete the last task, or you'll have to soft reset your device. Instead, edit it to be the first of your project.
Some users have found progect not very intuitive (they're probably right !), so here is the actual way of doing things :
To create a task, select the new command, then click on a task (the new task will be a brother of the one you clicked). The other commands work the same way. Select a command, then click on the task to act upon.
Multiple projects manager will certainly come this week, or beginning of next one. Thanks for your feedback !
