It’s been about nine months since Getting Things GNOME 0.4 was released as a massive update after more than six years of development. Now your favorite personal tasks and to-do app gets another major release.
Getting Things GNOME 0.5 brings multiple user experience refinements, revamped file format and task editor, performance improvements, and killer new features. The biggest new feature in the Getting Things GNOME 0.5 release is the ability to create recurring (repeating) tasks. This is indeed a must-have feature for any personal tasks, calendar, or to-do app, and I personally can’t imagine leaving without it. For those who don’t know what recurring tasks are, the feature lets you set automatic reminders (recurrence) for a certain task every day, every other day, as well as weekly, monthly, and yearly.
