Duty Roaster is a program for managing and generating duty rotas in a userfriendly way licenced under the GPL. You can obtain it from http://sourceforge.net/projects/duty-roaster.


- The program now has a misc menu, containing some information about
the authors and a translation-log window.

- Fixed a bug which caused the translation module to reject valid
translation files in win32.

- Bug fixes, code improvements - read the ChangeLog for details.


- Savefiles from version and remain valid.

- If you want to experiment with translations, watch out for
~/lang.txt if you are working under linux
PROGRAMM_PATH\\lang.txt if you are working under win32.
Open lang.txt with a text editor, add your translations and restart
the program. Open Misc-gt ;(Translation Log) to check if your
modifications were accepted. Make sure that the files are encoded as
UTF-8, rather than ASCII, ISO-8859, or others.

- A gentoo ebuild for the new version will be available soon on the
project's homepage on sourceforge.


- gtkmm-2.6.2 [http://www.gtkmm.org]. 2.4.x will not work !

- boost-1.32.0 [http://www.boost.org/] with thread support enabled
(gentoo users should emerge boost with the 'threads' useflag).

- sqlite-2.8.14 [http://www.sqlite.org/] or higher, but not a 3.x
version (allthogh that may work). Switching to sqlite-3.x is at
least planned.

Planned for 0.0.80:

- Needs should be defined for timeperiods, not permanently.

- There should be the possibility to create new workers with arbitrary
starting hour balances.

- Switch to sqlite-3.x.


- My brother Joseph Lehner for implementig the export to html function
and the translation module.

- BALANCE [http://www.balance.at/], an association for physically
handicappedd people for funding this project.

- All the others from the open source community for their great work
which made this project possible.
