Many thanks to Leib Moscovitz and Graham Rhind for discovering and reporting an issue with the trial version of Work Time Studio which affected Versions 1.08 and earlier, as well as a few other smaller issues. This issue is now fixed in Version 1.09 of Work Time Studio. If you’re using version 1.08, you are encouraged to uninstall your current trial, and download and install the trial version of 1.09 or later from our download page. When installing the trial version of 1.09 or later, your trial period will be reset, so you will have a full 30 days to review this version.
Since this was a very necessary update, the small issues related to Windows 7 will now be pushed back to Version 1.1.0, which is expected to be released by Dec 20th.

You can look forward to a couple of major enhancements to version 1.2, which we’re hoping to release before the 2nd quarter of 2010. The major enhancement will be the addition of ‘WorkItem Events‘. You will be able to add any number of events to your WorkItems, which will be managed in a variety of ways. A ‘WorkItem Event’ pane will be included as a sub pane of the Activity Tree. This pane will display all the events for the selected WorkItem in the top task panel of the pane. When you select one of the events in the task panel, the event properties of that event will be displayed, and can be edited, in the lower part of the pane within a property grid. In addition to the ability to edit event properties in the lower part of the WorkItem Events pane, you will also be able to edit events in an ‘Edit Event Dialog’ which will be displayed by double clicking on the event in the task panel. The WorkItem events will also be displayed on the Activity Calendar, where they can also be edited. You’ll be able to set reminders for the events, and set a variety of recurring properties for the events. You’ll also be able to assign events to a user defined ‘Event Category’. The Event Categories will be maintained in the user options.
A new feature slated for Version 1.3, is the addition of a ‘Quick Calendar’ pane. This pane will only display the current day view, and will show the past and current WorkItem intervals for the day. The date in the Quick Calendar will normally display the current date, but can be changed to show another date. The Quick Calendar will also show any WorkItem events which are scheduled for the displayed date.
