Version 1.0 | Release Date: 2007-10-23 | Download

This is it, TaskPaper 1.0. YEAH! I couldn't leave well enough alone and added two more mini features, lets hope I didn't break anything!

Added Preferences for paper view background color and search results view background color.

Added Popup menu in search results view to reveal the selected result in the paper view.

Version 0.9.6 | Release Date: 2007-10-22 | Download

Added View > Reveal in Text menu item. This is for when you are viewing items in the search/tags view and want to go edit that item in the text view.

Added TaskPaper now has very basic AppleScript support. Not much, but at least it's working and something to build on.

Changed The background color of the Searches/Tags view is now tinted yellow so it won't get confused with the standard text view.

Changed Default font's are no longer fixed width.

Changed Turned off a lot of logging and validation code. Should speed things up considerably in some cases.

Version 0.9.5 | Release Date: 2007-10-16 | Download

Fixed bug that would cause TaskPaper to forget your open documents if you quit TaskPaper and one of your open documents has changes that needed to be saved.

Version 0.9.4 | Release Date: 2007-10-13 | Download

Extended expiration date, version 0.9.3 will expire on the 15th.

Added tag with project name to archived tasks.

Fixed problem where the saved window size would grow by line on each start.

Fixed bug where clicking on tag would search for "tag" instead of "@tag".

Version 0.9.3 | Release Date: 2007-10-04 | Download

Added Preference to not show ruler.
Added Printing support for project views and tag views.
Added Preference to turn off automatic tag auto-completion. In this case use "Escape" to auto-complete.
Fixed Tab state (open tabs, and content of those tabs) is now remembered for documents that are open when TaskPaper is quit.
Fixed Tag auto-complete so that the tags optional value (what's inside the parentheses) are no longer included in tag list.
FIxed Tag values can now have spaces in them without breaking tag formatting.
Fixed CPU performance is now improved when mouse is over ruler.
Fixed Toolbar search field is now updated when switching between tabs.

Version 0.9.2 | Release Date: 2007-09-28 | Download

Added TaskPaper now remember what tabs you have open in a document and reopens them next time you open the document.

Added Copy will now copy font attributes so you can paste TaskPaper formatted text into other applications and retain the same look.

Added Preference to turn off automatic task list formatting.

Added Tag searches can now be mixed with normal text search in the toolbar search file. For example the search '@work read' will find all tasks tagged with @work that also contain the text 'read'.

Changed Project background color is new a gradient to white.

Fixed Bug in tag autocomplete that would change the wrong text when autocompleting in a project view.

Fixed Tag autocomplete will now "autocomplete" when you type "retur" or "tab" at any point, even if the popup list isn't showing.

Version 0.6 | Release Date: 2007-09-18 | Download

Version 0.4 | Release Date: 2007-09-13 | Download

This version also adds a much better keyboard navigation support, now you can quickly navigate to any project or tag by keyboard. Please join me in the user forum to discus the new features and what will get done next.

Update I just made a small change to the downloads Info.plist to associate .taskpaper files with the app, but I didn't create a new release since I didn't change any actual code. Anyway if you downloaded version 0.3 before seeing this note then you might want to download again.

Version 0.3 | Release Date: 2007-08-29 | Download
