Release Notes 0.6

What's new in Lunatask 0.6?

The latest update brings Lunatask one step closer to become an open platform, as well as it brings updates to Task List, Habit Tracker, and enhanced security.

Features

  • Added support for custom lists (we name them Areas of Life). When you sign up for Lunatask, your two default areas (personal and work-related tasks) will be still present, however, with Lunatask 0.6, you can add your own. Working for multiple clients or want to track education-related tasks separately? No problem with our new custom Areas of Life.
  • Added developer-friendly Public API. Those more tech-savvy among you, you can now build integrations that will bring tasks from your favorite tools into Lunatask automatically. This is a foundation to make Lunatask an open platform and going forward you can expect some native integration as well!
  • Added Idea Voting Portal which serves as a public roadmap where you can see and influence what we build next

Improvements

  • Habit Tracker now shows your record streak for each habit to keep you motivated to beat your past record. Streak calculation was also rewritten to take habit recurrence into account.
  • Enabling us to build Public API and future integrations we rewrote the end-to-end encryption which protects your data. Previously, AES-256-GCM+PBKDF2 algorithms were used. Starting with 0.6 the cryptography algorithms used are Curve25519+XSalsa20+Poly1305+argon2id. Accounts created with earlier versions of Lunatask will be prompted to undergo a short migration when updating to Lunatask 0.6 or later.
  • Your task list configuration (workflow, grouping and sort) is now stored remotely and synced to all devices
  • New icons in task list footer to indicate better what is what
  • Login and account setup flow window is now draggable
  • Improved reliability of cloud sync
  • Improved network connection status detection

Fixes

  • Fixed up/down arrow keys not working in flat grouping

Notes

  • Seems like the auto-updater again was misbehaving in 0.5.1 and 0.5.2. The issue was fixed in 0.5.3, if you have a trouble updating Lunatask, please, download new version from the website manually. Apologies for the inconvenience, we will keep a closer eye on him next time!
