After a few hours of figuring out linux-builds and packaging there is now an experimental linux build of Todour on the main page. The packaging is tar.gz and all files that should be needed are there. It’s been built and tested on a Linux Mint system and it’s only 64-bit.
Please have a go and see if it works for you, and let me know if you want me to continue making the software available on Linux (I don’t use Linux currently so I won’t be making builds for myself..)
Todour 2.01 is up on the server for both windows and mac. Please download and give it a try.
New in this version is the support for dates (can be turned on in settings), a bunch of bugs have been removed and the mac version is now up to the same standard as the Windows version.
For quite a few years I’ve had Todour available for anyone to download. It’s software I make for my own use and I’m happy to share it but I can’t help wondering how many people are actually using it, and on what platforms. How many people care if I make an update?
I have had no tracking of downloads on my page, but that wouldn’t really have mattered anyway as it says nothing about who uses the software and also the software is available for download in other places.
To get a better view of this I have, from version 2.01, added google analytics into the application, hoping that it doesn’t offend anyone. The analytics can be easily turned off of course and it only gathers very basic data.
Currently I will be collecting:
- Application starts, Operating system (Windows or Mac) and what version of Todour is being started
- How often the update checker in the about menu has been run
I hope this will give me more insights into how many people actually use the software to understand if there is interest in keeping developing it (it’s does most of the things I need for now).
I wonder how this one passed me by, but today I found this thorough tutorial on the todo.txt format by Zach LeBar. He explains in detail how to use the format and he mentions Todour in his article. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to know more about using plain text files for managing his/her todo-list.
Todour v2.00 has been published for windows now.
- Update check in the about menu
- Search box clearer
- Portable distribution
- Ability to choose if sort order of inactive items should be last or last within prio
- Numerous bugfixes
A mac version will be launched later when the 2.01 version is ready
