  • Task: Added first man page references which are deliberately minimal, and refer to online resources.
2015-09-05
  • Task: Some unit tests were changed from being disabled to enabled and marked as 'exected to fail'. This means the test are now run, instead of ignored.

  • Task: If not explicitly stated on import, values with default dynamic values (such as modified, entry or end) can produce a false notion of incoming 'modified' data, where the only difference between the data in the database and data being imported is that the dynamic defaults differ, which are now ignored.
  • Task: Not all commands were obeying the rc.color settng.
  • Task: The command line parser can now detect cases where unwanted arguments are provided on the command line.
  • #1711: task add due:som appears to be interpreted as 'someday' fixed
2015-09-07
  • Task: rc.debug.parser=2 now shows the full parse tree, whereas rc.debug.parser=3 shows eval processing.
  • Task: The 2.4.5 development branch is renamed to 2.5.0, reflecting the scope of the work.
  • Task: 2.5.0 beta1 released.
