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:
