TaskJuggler 3.1.0 has been downloaded from RubyGems.org more than 10,000 times! This is a new download record and a pretty amazing number for such a specialized software in an overstuffed market. Anyway, it's time to celebrate this with the next release. I'm happy to announce the immediate availability of TaskJuggler 3.2.0. The highlight of this release is the new trace report feature. It allows you to track any task attribute value over time and generate nice graphs or CSV reports from the data. This can e. g. be used for easy generation for burndown charts for your Scrum project.
Here is the list of new features:
'leaves' attribute is now officially supported.
'alert' can now be specified with 'journalattributes'
Adding Scrum example project.
Adding @all and @none constants to improve readability of logical expressions.
Support custom start or end dates for auto-adjusted columns
Add 'sendmail' as alternative email delivery method.
Adding 'activetasks', 'opentasks' and 'closedtasks' columns.
Web server is now a separate program: tj3webd
More consistent error reporting across the tj3 programs.
HTML reports now use HTML5 syntax.
Chart plotter for tracereport data

TaskJuggler is project management software for serious project managers. It

TaskJuggler provides an optimizing scheduler that computes your project
time lines and resource assignments based on the project outline and the
constraints that you have provided. The built-in resource balancer and

details and ring the alarm if the project gets out of hand. The flexible
as-many-details-as-necessary approach allows you to plan your project as
you go, making it also ideal for new management strategies such as Extreme
Programming and Agile Project Management.
