tasks 1.8 released

I’ve released tasks version 1.8 (was going to be 1.7.5). This includes a lot of great improvements from version 1.7.2:

  • More languages! (Catalan, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Japanese (Shift JIS), Korean, Russian, Traditional Chinese)
  • Quick Search from the sidebar
  • Uses dynamic data for iCalendar instead of writing to a file (don’t need to set permissions anymore)
  • Includes a copy of PHP iCalendar 0.9.4
  • Refactored HTML toolbar.
  • Add spam protection to email addresses on about page.
  • Updated documentation.
  • Removed many iCalendar settings
  • Searching on Last Modified date
  • ‘New Task’ as a post-save option for quick entry of lots of tasks
  • Included 2 ‘orphaned’ language files in hopes they will be updated

And the following bug fixes:

  • Fixed a bug with HTML entities in the Jump to… drop down list.
  • minor javascript bug fix.
  • Plugged cross-site scripting vulnerabliity (sounds a lot worse than it is).
  • Fixed a Warning message in PHP iCalendar 0.9.4

This is likely the last 1.x release of tasks aside from bug fixes. Reporting and a bunch of other planned features will be rolled into a 2.x release.
