Gnome-schedule 1.0 has been released.
Gnome-schedule is a grapichal user interface to 'crontab' and 'at', both used to schedule tasks. It supports periodical tasks and tasks that happens once in the future. It is written in python using pygtk.Gnome-schedule 1.0.0
The new release contains a bunch of bugfixes and we consider it stable, it has been tested and developed on a variety of distributions, like gentoo, ubuntu, slackware, foresight, fedora and so on. It supports the most popular cron daemons, 'vixie-cron' and 'dcron'. It uses one of the standard dateformats for 'at' so it should work on most locales.
Gnome-schedule also supports titles and icons for your tasks so that they are more easily to keep track of. And you can create templates so that you won't have to create the same task again and again. So that if you want to schedule a virus check at 03:00 today, you can save it as a template and choose it from an dropdown box when you want. Or want to compile the kernel.. again.. at 00:00. This is saved in gconf and may easily be shipped with each distribution.
