Hi TaskJuggler Users,

This release took a little longer to bake due to a change of jobs on my end. The long wait comes with some long wanted features like hammock tasks. Many error messages were made clearer and are hopefully now more informative. We also made the switch to Ruby 2.0 as recommended Ruby version. 1.9 is still fully supported and even 1.8.7 and later work with some restrictions.

Here is a list of the new features:

* Only include scenario in error messages when using multiple scenarios.
* Hammock tasks are now supported.
* Adding search field to the online user manual.
* List contended resources and tasks for runaway tasks.
* Queries can now access attributes of parent properties.
* Adding support for new custom attribute type 'number'.
* Add --list-reports option for tj3 similar to tj3client.
* Ruby 2.0 is now the recommended Ruby version.
* Adding 'outputdir' attribute to set output directory for reports.
* 'auxdir' attribute is now also a global attribute.
Please see the change log for a complete list of new features and bug fixes.
