Hey everyone! Summer is here 🌞 - and as it’s just the beginning of the month, it is again time for a new release of OpenTodosList! Admittedly, the list of changes that went into this one is not as long as for the previous releases, but this doesn’t matter. First of all, we again have a nice mixture of new features and important fixes. And on top we have exciting changes in the pipeline, that hopefully should hit us in the next release, due beginning of July. But before that future release, let’s check out what went into today’s one:
- rpdev/opentodolist#448: Bug fix number 1 🐛 - under certain circumstances, it could happen that if you did some changes in quick succession (as ticking off several todos inside a list in a short time), due to the sync that is immediately triggered after the first change, the other ones get mystically discarded. We implemented some counter measures that should stop this from happening in the future!
- rpdev/opentodolist#444: And bug fix number 2 🪲 - it seems that there are a lot of - let’s call them faulty - WebDAV servers out in the wild that do not report etags on the folder level. These etags are used to detect changes on the server efficiently - without them, clients need to issue in the worst case not only one but several remote queries to find out if some files have changed on the server and hence need to be downloaded. If a server did not report etags on folders, OpenTodoList would reject adding an account for it in the first place. However, if you are a user of such a service and had no choice to switch to another provider, this meant you were out of luck and unable to use OpenTodoList. This is no longer the case 🎉 At the expense of having to issue several HTTP calls, OpenTodoList can be used now also with such faulty WebDAV servers!
- rpdev/opentodolist#446: Enough talk of bug fixes - as promised, this release also brings some new features. So let’s start with the first of them: When setting up recurrence for an item, you can now schedule it to recur yearly. 📅
- rpdev/opentodolist#447: And while we are talking about recurring items - we did not only include yearly recurrence, but you can also set up items to occur every N weeks or month (similar to the recurrence every N days was already available in the app).
