TimeSaver finally stable

After a long period of beta stage of development TimeSaver has finally reached his first 1.0 stable version. There have been made only minor changes compared to 0.5.3, last beta version. 
  • Exceeded time is shown after 1 minute passes
  • Fixed some buges with deleting subtasks
  • User is asked before deleting task
Except 1.0 stable linux version there has been released a beta 0.5 setup for Windows thanks to Giuseppe "Cowo" Corbelli

Since my classes will start soon, development will be slowed down a lot. Good thing is that there are some good ideas what should be made, like more types of items except just tasks, like alarms, interval reminders and other. 
There is a possibility of implementing console commands that would
 be entered through main textbox and that could make work more easy.

That is all for now, hope you will give me some feedback soon.

It is available for both Linux and Windows platform.
Next thing to do is testing and I hope I will get some feedback from users.

Doxygen documentation

I have just published first version of TimeSaver API documentation,
using Doxygen 1.4.4 and Kdevelop.

It's location is: 
Code is not completly commented, but I'm working on it.

New home page

Finally I have set up first TimeSaver project home page.
For now site is quite empty, but I expect it to grow as TimeSaver project will.

This project is about simple application for saving time that we
spend on computer. Program allows user to plan his working time
by adding and managing tasks. I'm using C++ and WxWidgets for
this job, and application should be available for Windows and Linux.

Project is still in planning phase, and there is much work to do
on it. More details about project can be found at:
