The following is an archive of earlier news items for this project:

New in the 2.1.3 release
The time credited to a project after the keyboard inactivity timer has tripped is now very easily adjustable. Thus, if the timer tripped because you were on the phone, you can now trivially credit the project with any time, from zero to the full interval since the last keyboard/mouse activity, by simply adjusting a slider in the timeout popup.

Backup copies of data automatically saved, automatically pruned back, thus providing an archive of old data as well as avoiding catastrophic data loss.

New in the 2.1.2 release
A "major" change in the user interface: one must now double-click to start a project timer running. This makes navigation and task editing much easier and more robust than the single-click interface, which was prone to accidental-click problems, especially on laptop touchpads. This makes GnoTime much more usable on laptops. The 2.1.2 version is also the first official stable, non-beta release GnoTime. (December 27, 2002)

The 2.1.2 version also included:
GnoTime used to be known as GTT and was a part of the gnome-utils package. It has now been split out of that package, and ported to Gnome2. The Gnome2 port is now officially 'stable' and (more-or-less) ready for general, production use. It does still have a variety of blemishes, but these don't seem to be show-stoppers at this point.

Note that the gnome-1.4 version of GTT/GnoTime is still available as a part of the gnome-utils package on, in the gnome-utils-1-4 branch. It is NO LONGER A PART OF GNOME_UTILS-2.0 If you are interested in gtt version 1.4, and want the most recent gnome-1.4 CVS source, you should check out the gnome-1.4 branch, as follows: cvs -z3 -d checkout -r gnome-utils-1-4 gnome-utils Please note that this gnome-1.4 branch fixes some critical gtt bugs! Please note that these fixes are NOT in the latest gnome-utils 1.4 tarball!
