Compatibility Update

Version 76.8 kB Works with Thunderbird 1.5 and later

Since Lightning 1.0 has (finally) been released as a full version, this is the first official non-beta release for Gantt View as well. The AMO compatibility checker has been automatically updating the compatibility with new releases of Thunderbird, so I won't specifically note the compatibility for this version. I have tested it with TB 9.0

Version 74.8 kB Works with Thunderbird 1.5 - 3.1.*

Gantt View lives! Now compatible with the final release of sunbird (1.0b1) and Lightning

This version is more than just a compatibility update. New features include:

- Faster performance (although it can still get chunky when using long timeframes ("Weeks in View" above 10 or so depending on the number of events).

- Updated skin - matches the current lightning skin, with a better indication of selected items. Tasks show the "task" icon like in the other views with a green check to indicate a completed tasks

- Support for recurring events/tasks

- New toolbar buttons
- "Group by Calendar" - groups items by calendar rather than in a single combined chronological order
- "Show/Hide Progress Bars" - toggles display of progress bars on calendar and task items

- Mark tasks complete by clicking the task icon on a selected itembox

Known bugs:

- Misaligned day columns - Occasionally the day column widths will not line up with the headers and events. This is a result of the dynamic resizing to suit different system fonts coupled with a difficulty in "measuring" objects due to the timings of when code is executed and objects are drawn.
This can be alleviated by forcing a redraw of the screen - click on "Today" or move forward/back a week.
While I intend to address this in the future, I don't think it is a serious problem.
