New In This Release

This release updates Task Coach to the latest release (release notes).

Task Coach Portable Development Handoff

Task Coach Portable is now packaged directly by Frank Niessink and Jerome Laheurte, the Task Coach developers. Please join me in thanking them for supporting PortableApps.com, the open standard in portable software! If you're so inclined, you can even make a small donation to them by clicking the button on the Task Coach Portable homepage.

PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format

Task Coach Portable is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Story Topic:


I happened to notice while I was installing this that the installer showed all the files it was copying above the progress bar, which means this was made with a pre-1.0 version of the installer... no big deal, just thought I'd point it out.

Also, appinfo.ini lists the PAF version as 0.91.

Third party developers will often be a point release behind or so as they haven't updated their build systems. The PA.c Format spec actually permits 30 days to keep things running smoothly. Remember, Task Coach Portable is packaged and supported by the main Task Coach devs now, not by us.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
