Wow, what a March! With Corona spreading all over the world and causing shut downs on lots of countries, it certainly isn’t an easy month for most of us. But hey, life goes on so to keep up a bit of the usual flow, here’s another version of OpenTodoList!

While this month’s version does not bring the groundbreaking features, it still is an interesting release with some useful usability improvements here and there. Enjoy! 😉

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#310: Most apps on Android and iOS allow a simple pull down to refresh gesture in list views to fetch e.g. the most recent changes into a timeline. Well, OpenTodoList does so now, too. No matter if you are viewing the items in a library or if you are inside a todo list, you can swipe down from the top to get the latest changes from the server (well, if you are using a sync to NextCloud, ownCloud or any WebDAV server). In case you are using the app on a Desktop system, you now have a sync option available in the page menu on all of these pages, too (before, you had to go to the library page to manually trigger a sync).
  • rpdev/opentodolist#307: When you often take notes in your items but - at least on a Desktop system - want to have them available in another app for editing, this version also has something for you. You can now save such notes to Markdown files on disks to more easily continue editing in a full fledged Markdown editor.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#276: With this version we also reworked the app icon a bit! 🎨 The old one was a bit dated (well, it served well for several years), so it was time to update it a bit.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#306: We reworked the todo list page and the todo page to perform better when the lists of todos/tasks get bigger. With the previous implementation, you potentially already notices a slight stuttering when opening such a page.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#305: If an error is encountered during a sync, the next sync will run a full sync - this ensures, that all changes are fetched from the server. Before, it could happen that after an unsuccessful sync the app would not get all the changes from the server, causing missing items or item properties not being up to date.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#269: Handling of missing passwords for an account is now much better. In case the app cannot load the secrets, it will show a warning in the toolbar, where you can click on to see the account with the missing password. Future versions of the app will extend this error reporting mechanism and also show other warnings there.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#284: The AppImage and Snap version of the app now consistently are shipped with the Qt Wayland plugins and no longer prevent the plugin from being used. So if you are on a Linux distribution where Wayland is used, the app should run as a native Wayland client as well (instead of falling back to Xwayland).
  • rpdev/opentodolist#304: We decreased the size of the Windows installer significantly. Previously, we (unintentionally) shipped the Windows versions with debug symbols, which caused the file size to be quite huge.
  • Last but not least: This version contains a lot more translations into non-English languages! The app usually should select the language automatically depending on you system language. However, you can always override this in the settings and pick another one. If you find your language is not yet supported (or some strings still need to be translated), you can help us by joining the project on POEditor.
You can now easily pull down to trigger a sync. Additionally, you can now access the menu to trigger a sync on any page as well.

February went by fast. And during the month, we have not only one but two intermediate bugfix releases of OpenTodoList. Consequentially, there was not so much time to work on new features. But hey, we managed to at least get one implemented - and this one is in fact a very nice addition to the app 📃

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#197: Did you ever ask yourself: When in OpenTodoList I can add arbitrary text to images and todo lists, why the heck should I use Notes? Well, you are right: Until now, there was little reason to do so (in fact, the only reason might be that notes are rendered like sticky notes in the library page, which might be handy for some of you). But otherwise, you were usually better of with using a todo list instead. This, however, is over with this version. It is now possible to add additional pages of text to a note (thus, making notes actually rather a note book). So if you happen to collect a lot of text in your libraries, you have (besides of using tags) now a new cool feature to structure it!
Notes can now have arbitrary many pages of text. This makes them a kind of notebook instead (and opens a completely new way of organizing large amounts of text in the app).

We relased v3.19 of OpenTodoList only a few days ago. Unfortunately, a nasty little bug found its way in 🐛

So here comes v3.19.1, which fixes the issue and also already comes with other gimmicks 😉

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#296: The previous release (v3.19) brought quite some enhancements especially regarding handling of synced libraries. These changes caused the Windows version of the app to not start anymore 😰 This version fixes this issue, so, dear Windows users: Welcome back on board!
  • rpdev/opentodolist#298: Depending on the time zone you live in, due dates in the apps might potentially be created with one day off. This issues is fixed as well in this release.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#294: When a library is synchronized, we now show an indication in the tool bar. Previously, an overlay footer was used for this purpose, which however prevented users from interacting with the content of the current page.

We are already well into February, so a new version of OpenTodoList is actually overdue 😲

On the other side, this version of the app is again packed with some cool new features, so you won’t be sorry for the wait.

Changelog

  • rpdev/opentodolist#288: In our tests we make sure OpenTodoList works against ownCloud and NextCloud. However, we currently don’t have any tests for other providers. For this reason, until now, chances were high that the app did not work with your WebDAV server of choice - in fact, there was a nasty bug in the code which prevented proper sync with a lot of providers. Fortunately, this is now fixed in this release, so if you server talks proper WebDAV, you should be able to use it to sync your libraries.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#287: We improved the About page of the app a bit. It should be much cleaner now and also has a useful direkt link to report issues in our bug tracker 😉
  • rpdev/opentodolist#286: Did you know that you can help improve the app by translating it to other languages? No? We have an account on POEditor.com where everyone can contribute by translating strings into their own language, making the app more accessible for everyone. To make it easier to find the page, we added a direct link to it to the side bar.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#283: In the previous release we added a feature which allows you to check or uncheck a todo or task by swiping it from left to right. Unfortunately, the item would not swipe back in case of tasks. This is fixed now.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#281: You can now quickly change the title of todos or tasks by double clicking (or double tapping) them.
  • rpdev/opentodolist#285: And here comes the big one! We introduced Accounts in the app 🎉 Well, this might sound strange, but it simply means: If you have more than one library which is stored on the same server (e.g. if you have a library for private stuff and one you use for your work), the credentials for them are now stored in one logical account inside the app. This simplifies both adding an existing library to your device as well as creating entirely new libraries, because you no longer have to enter the server address, user name and password all over again.
Accounts make it easier to manage several libraries that are stored on the same server.
