Update: There has been a fix release for the api.
Long time no release! This is again a rather big release (I feel like I’m writing that way too often).
Getting the Upgrade #
As usual, just grab a new release from the downloads page or pull the latest docker container.
Favorite Lists & Tasks #
You can now mark tasks and lists as favorite which lets them show up in special namespaces and lists for easier access! No more “Where was that important task I wanted to do later today?”
Saved Filters #
You can now save a specific set of filters to create a new pseudo list which will dynamically contain all tasks matching the filter! This lets you easily see important (as per your definition) tasks in one go.
Mange users through cli #
After popular request, you can now manage users through the cli. The new commands let you create, edit, delete or change a user’s password.
Keyboard Shortcuts and quick actions #
The frontend now supports quick actions like
ctrl-click on a task in the kanban board to mark a task as done or adding a label to a task by including text prefixed with
~ in the task title. Keyboard shortcuts let you quickly achieve what you’re trying to do. Click the link in the user menu for a list of all available shortcuts.
Vikunja Desktop #
Starting with this release, you can run the frontend as a standalone desktop installation! This opens up the possibility to run only the api on a server and to use the desktop app as the only frontend.
Other notable changes #
- Lots of improvements and fixes to Caldav - thanks to freaktechnik for the PRs!
- More avatar Providers - You can now upload an avatar, only show the initials or use a gravatar one (based on your email address)
- Rights are now reflected in the UI - This means if you only have read access to a list Vikunja won’t show you the edit buttons. It already wasn’t possible to use these edit buttons, now they’re just hidden to avoid confusion.
