After two years of development, version 2 of Work Time Studio has been released on Aug 6, 2012. Version 2 includes many bug fixes, as well as some major enhancements. The major difference in version 2 is the use of the PostgreSQL database engine, which is very fast, robust and full featured. Version 2 takes advantage of some of the features of postgres in the new Database Utilities dialog. Another new feature is the addition of the WorkItem Links Pane which allows you to store and associate URL and file links to any WorkItem in your Activity Tree. The Links Pane also allows you to store links to other WorkItems, as a way to associate WorkItems in a manner different than the parent/child relationships. All types of links can be easily created simply by dragging and dropping URLs or files onto a WorkItem in the Activity_Tree, or by dropping them directly into the Links pane.
Work Time Studio is also now fully unicode compliant. You will be able to create, edit and save all your data in your own language, including WorkItems, Links, Notes, and even many of the WorkItem property values.
Another nice feature added to version 2 is the ability to view properties and notes of WorkItems by just hovering your mouse over the WorkItem. This feature can be turned on or off for the Activity Tree or the Quick Tree. The Prioritizer has also changed, to allow the selection of a WorkItem in the Activity Tree by double clicking on that WorkItem in the Prioritizer. You can also drag and drop WorkItems from the Prioritizer to the Activity Calendar.
We have also introduced a new Property for WorkItems, called the Billing Rate
We’ve decided to now offer a Lite version of Work Time Studio to users. This Lite version is absolutely free, and has limited functionality compared to the standard version. Regardless of the limited functionality, we are still certain that the Lite version provides more task and time management features than most other full featured task and time management software systems you pay for.
There’s just too many new additions and fixes in version 2 to list here, so please see the Build Log for more details, and download the latest version today. Version 2 allows you to try out the standard version for 30 days. Afterwards, it will revert to the Lite version, and keep all your data intact.
