1.7 is now live
This version had enough new features and fixes to warrant skipping a couple of point releases, brining everything into version 1.7.
A couple of user requested features have been included, and some recently revealed bugs have also been squashed. On top of that a number of user interface elements have also been improved, and a new metric that shows you how much task load you are personally responsible for across the entire team.
The full changelog reads:
- Added option to only show the currents users projects in the main nav.
- Added option to swap between new enhanced dashboard overview and original overview.
- Added project mini chart into the main nav (visible everywhere except dashboard).
- Added option to show/hide the mini chart.
- Added new metric so users can see how much task load they carry across all projects.
- Fixed bug where project name would still be immediately visible in nav after being deleted.
- Fixed bug that would mess with the pages nav icon presentation on fresh install.
- Fixed bug where users could still reassign tasks (from new task page) when admin option forbids it.
- Improved dashboard information for when there are no tasks or projects.
- Increased character allowance on project and task names to 100.
- Improved project data UI.
- Added character count to project description.
- Added validation to the search field.
- Updated admin dashboard widget UI.
- Removed ‘subscriber’ role (this role is not used in Task Rocket).
- UI tweaks.
As always, feedback is welcome (and helpful!).
