Release Notes - 2012 May 18 - build 457 (web)

WHAT'S NEW !!

  • Create new tasks at the top of a list via hot key combo Shift + N
  • Create new tasks at the top of a list via rapid entry with Shift + Enter 
  • Create new tasks in the middle of a list by Shift + Clicking on an existing task's drag-handle (or whitespace) --a new task will be inserted just above the one you clicked

BUG FIXES
  • Dragging multiple tasks from the main area to lists / projects in the left navi now retains ordering of the items moved for lists that allow manual sorting
  • Re-ordering and moving project tasks within Next > Group by Project view no longer confuses the less/more collapsing 
  • When creating / editing inline tasks Nirvana now (correctly) scrolls the task into view if the task was rendered above / below the fold  
  • Fixed an issue where raw html entered into task name / notes were not being properly escaped, resulting in unexpected page rendering in certain situations
  • If "Later" list is enabled, creating new tasks here now works as expected, consistent with other list behaviour
  • Contextual Menus (right-clicking on a task) now renders Move To > Active Projects listing alphabetically if that is the user preference.  Inactive Projects in context menus are now always listed alphabetically.

Great update! Thanks! It's also googd to know that the iPhone app is just around the corner. (Although I don't have an iPhone :))

I am still waiting for the iPhone app. Currently I am still using Nirvana and Wunderlist at the same time since I am most of the time on the move. But I would like to use only 1 app, Nirvana. When will the iPhone app be available?

We are doing the dance with Apple to get our paperwork through and the app into the AppStore.  Not sure if this means one more week or two.  We are as eager to get the IOS app into the store as everyone is to get their hands on it.

I'd like to clarify that there are multiple development fronts at Nirvana.  

  • iPhone Native 
  • Android Native
  • Mobile Web 
  • Desktop Web
  • API 
  • Account
  • ... and a few others
We should probably make a better distinction about what the build number means. In this case, the Release Notes refer to N2 Desktop Build 457.  
While there is a a lot of common code shared across these various targets, we try and keep the development fronts decoupled to avoid dependencies as much as possible.  This is how Mitch is able to lead on iOS/Android development, Dave is able to lead on Account development, and I am able to lead on Web and API development without having to always be in the same office, timezone or hemisphere.

I can finally create a task and not hunt for it at the bottom of the pile.


Thanks

Dont quite understand the difference between these. In any case I cannot see anything happening, when doing the "shift + enter". 

Proably just me, but can some explain me how works?

Thanks

The first one is great though.

"Create new tasks in the middle of a list" is my favorite... and the one that does'nt work here (Safari, Mac OS 10.6.8) while other shortcuts are ok. I can only drag the existing task, nothing gets created.

BTW, I did not try before Nirvana build 463.

Any reason for that ?
