Taskwarrior 2.6.2 released

Since Taskwarrior strives to be the very best, we are proud to announce the availability of the 2.6.2 bugfix release. Sometimes being best also means best at releasing versions with problems that need to be fixed 🙂 and (hopefully, eventually) catching them all.

This bugfix-only release improves the upgrade path to 2.6.x, prevents corruption of the depends attribute when syncing, provides better support for detecting invalid write contexts and fixes a handful of small regressions introduced in our recent 2.6.0 release. The full changelog is once again available in our traditional plaintext form.

This is a recommended upgrade for all Taskwarrior users. Download here.

Taskwarrior 2.6.0 released

Taskwarrior team is happy to announce the release of Taskwarrior 2.6.0, which brings a number of improvements to your favourite task management tool. To just pick a few - writeable and configurable contexts, support for XDG Base Directory Specification, and most importantly, the ability to use emojis in your task descriptions 🚀

We also made a number of stability and bug fixing improvements to multiple areas of TW, including parsing, display or platform compatibility.

This is also the first release which supports 64-bit timestamps (also known as Y2038 problem), hence adding tasks that will likely outlive them, barring unprecedented advances in human longevity, is something our users can now indulge in:

# Hopefully emojis are still cool in 2100's
$ task add ❤️ Throw a party for 100th birthday of Taskwarrior 🥳 due:2106-11-29
Created task 3.
