Tomboy 0.7.2 Released (development release)
Posted on: 07/15/2007 01:34 PM

Tomboy 0.7.2 is the third development release of the 0.7.x series leading up to 0.8.0. Like usual, please be aware that running the development series code is considered living on the edge (please make regular backup copies of your notes).

A new Tasks addin has been added, allowing you to create a task in a note by simply starting a line with "todo:". It also provides a more sophisticated stand-alone task management UI, available from the notes menu. Every part of this addin is subject to change, as it is undergoing heavy development. Any feedback is appreciated, of course.

Speaking of addins, Tomboy's entire plugin infrastructure has been revamped to use the new Mono.Addins library. This makes it much easier to create "extension points" within Tomboy where addin developers can hook in their features. All built-in plugins have been converted to addins, but third-party developers will need to update their code. Old-style note plugins will no longer be recognized by Tomboy.

Note to packagers: Tomboy bundles a slightly modified version of Mono.Addins 0.2, so at this point Tomboy cannot depend on a packaged version of Mono.Addins.

Tomboy is a simple note-taking application designed to be unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note links similar to a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas. It can run either as a Gnome panel applet or a notification tray-icon.
