duty-roaster-0.0.81 has been released:

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.


- Fixed a bug which caused the program to terminate when assigning an external shifts which intersects two different days.

- Fixed a bug which caused the program to terminate if the user tries to open the 'Shift preferneces window', if a shift has been defined after there are allready some workers.

- Fixed a bug in the 'Requirements window' which caused the program to terminate under certain conditions.


- 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] or higher. 2.4.x will not work !

- boost-1.32.0 [http://www.boost.org/] with thread support enabled

Planned for 0.0.90:

- Make it possible to enter negative payed values for extraordinary

- Overhours on public holidays should be treated differently.

assignid shifts manually.
