Reminder-ng 0.3.1 has been released!

March 1, 2010

So, after 19 days, thousands of line changes and weeks of swearing(who doesn’t? :P), I am happy to say that Reminder-ng 0.3.1 is out!

This release features priorities for reminders and also allows users to specify what alarms they want to hear/see after a reminder has expired, they could also have a script executed. In addition to the new features, it also sports quite a few bug fixes concerning how missed reminders are presented and also the general running of the program. Another thing is that the user interfaces should look a bit nicer due to the various adjustments made to try to adhere to the GNOME HIG.

This release also has Italian translations(contributed by Antonio Arcudi), so any Italians out there, good on you. Anyone want to contribute translations to their languages, I would be more than happy to add them. 🙂

Now for the problems. As with release 0.2 of Reminder-ng, it still has the lack of artwork. I have worked on something, but frankly they do not really appeal to me, nevertheless they will be coming for the next release anyway. The second problem actually concerns the program, now with version 0.22 of libcanberra the sound clip does stop playing if you acknowledge the visual notification, but since Ubuntu Karmic uses version 0.15 and since it misses the required function you will have to listen to the clip until the end. Admittedly that isn’t a really big problem, but just thought I would point that out anyway.

Screenshots can be seen here. Binary and source packages can be downloaded from here.

Edit:- I forgot to mention. Users of the Reminder-ng 0.2 series, you can just update it to 0.3.1 and you will still have all your reminders as you did before and they will be given the normal priority. So you won’t have to edit the database files or migrate the reminders or whatever. 🙂
