Release Notes 1.4

What's new in Lunatask 1.4?

Features

  • Added support for connecting iCloud, Fastmail, and any other calendar supporting CalDAV protocol
  • Notes can now be shared publicly on the internet by creating a public link and sharing it with friends, colleagues, etc. Opening the link will allow anyone to see the read-only version of the note in their browsers.
  • The formatting toolbar was added to notes, journal entries, and task descriptions
  • The right-click context menu on tasks now supports bulk operations for updating status, motivation, priority, and moving selected tasks between lists
  • You can now set a start/end date for repeating tasks
  • When a habit is scheduled by setting the time of day in habit settings or by dragging the habit onto the calendar, the time is now shown as well on the habit itself in the habit tracker (and in red if the time is in the past). Also, the menu badge will not count in the habit until the specified time has passed as the habit is not actionable until that time.
  • The first link found in task descriptions is now extracted and a button to quickly visit the link is shown on the task itself in the list. The link extraction can be disabled in settings. Note that the link won’t be extracted retroactively for existing task descriptions. You will have to modify the existing task description somehow first.
  • You can now save a note as a Markdown file to your local filesystem
  • It is now possible to Shift+Click to select a range of tasks
  • The Linux version is now distributed also as AppImage, not just Snap
