This is a minor bugfix release for time tracker. It fixes a problem where the app would start to behave weird when you have multiple projects with the same name or multiple tasks within a project with the same name.
Basically all I currently do is warn you when you try to choose a duplicate name. If you already have projects with the same name, then the app will change the project names (add a number after the duplicate name) so that the project name will be unique again.
In addition I have added a few more options to the configuration screen:
- # of last tasks in menubar: lets you choose how many quickstart tasks are shown in the menu bar (you can quick start a task by clicking on the menubar icon and then selecting one of the most recent previous recorded tasks).
- show time in menubar: if this is enabled then the duration of the current work period is shown in the menubar.
- idle timeout (seconds): lets you configure the idle timeout in seconds. This basically defines how soon TimeTracker will prompt you whether you still want to keep on recording the time, default is 300s (i.e. 5 minutes).
- Computer sleep detection: lets you define whether TimeTracker will attempt to recognize the computer going into sleep / standby. If turned on and TimeTracker notices a clock jump of > 60 seconds it will interpret this as standby mode and also trigger the idle warning. The default is on since at least on laptops that makes a lot of sense.
As always if you are new to my beta, be sure to read previous articles in my blog tagged with TimeTracker about data compability with public TimeTracker releases.
