There are not many changes but some of them are quite significant:
- Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is bundled now with TimeCult 1.4 installation on 64 bit Windows. This makes the installation package bigger but on the other hand eliminates a requirement of a certain Java version being properly installed. Launch4j is used again to run TimeCult on Windows. UI controls are properly rendered on Windows too, previously they did not look like in a regular Win7 application. Hopefully all this will bring a better experience for Windows users.
- You can set a deadline for a task or a project. Overdue tasks are highlighted with a reddish background color. If a task doesn’t have it’s own deadline it is inherited from a containing project.
- There are some new convenience shortcuts: [Enter] key now expands/collapses a project tree branch, numeric keys “1”..”5″ can be used to set one of the colored flags and “0” to remove it.
- Version numbering has changed from 0.1.x to 1.x. Subsequent versions will be numbered as 1.5, 1.6 and etc.
