News: Taskwarrior 2.6.2 released 2021-10-02

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.

News: Taskwarrior 2.6.0 released 2021-10-02

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.

$ task
 ID Age  Project Due     Description                                          Urg
