Taskserver 1.1.0 Released 2015-05-11

After more than a year of improvements, Taskserver 1.1.0 is released.

This is a major release, with greatly improved setup, security and logging, which make this a recommended upgrade. Changes include:


  • New setup helper script, setup_server.bash, which interactively leads the whole setup and configuration process.
  • When hosting, the configured server name is no longer ignored.
  • Taskserver can now be restricted to IPv4 or IPv6.
  • New man page for taskdctl.
  • Server now supports a configuration setting trust, which can be either strict or allow all, and defaults to strict.


Taskwarrior 2.4.4 Released 2015-05-10

Taskwarrior 2.4.4 is released. Although a minor release, there are significant bug fixes which make this a recommended upgrade. Changes include:

  • Fixed a problem where the wrong task may be updated, if GC is disabled. This is the primary reason for the release.
  • Fixed a problem where filters including parenthesized tags (... and (+DUE or +OVERDUE)) were incorrectly handled.
  • 32-bit platform support.
  • The obfuscate configuration setting will hide private data, intended for bug reporting.
  • An early Japanese localization.
  • Several bug fixes.
For full details, see the ChangeLog file included in the release.
