Two months ago, GNOME To Do was introduced to the outside world. People got (unexpectedly, I must admit) excited about it, and said that the app looks promising. A month lated, another version was release with a bunch of new features.
Now that we’re reaching the 3.18 release, it’s time to settle things down and stop the heavy development phase (which, by the way, should have stopped 3 weeks ago!). Let’s see what changed.
Yes, you read it correctly. GNOME To Do finally received an icon, and the best of all: from the amazing Jakub Steiner! Take a look:
The biggest highlight of this development cycle is the new selection mode. Following the GNOME selection pattern, it enables deleting & renaming tasks.
Some tasks are undeletable (something I couldn’t resolve reliably in time) and the Delete button gets insensitive for them.
Renaming tasklists is quite pleasant too:
Something that almost missed this release, To Do is now able to report errors that may happen. Error reporting, while it may sound too technical, is very important for the users to be able to share their issues without a major burden.
Cleanups, cleanups, cleanups
Many fixed and cleanups were introduced. A whole class of annoyances was fixed, making GNOME To Do very pleasant and smooth to use. I sincerely hope that this small and simple application will help you organize yourselves and, at the very end, optimize your life and make you guys happier & healthier!
As always, a screencast of the cited features:
