Hi TaskJuggler Users,

It took a little longer than usual to finish this release even though it does not have any big features. TaskJuggler 3.4.0 comes with a bunch of incremental improvements and lots of bug fixes. Almost all of the changes were triggered by bug reports and feature requests from the user community. A big thank you to everybody who contributed patches, bug reports and other feedback!

Here is a list of the new features:

* 'auxdir' can be used to specify alterntive path to CSS and script files.
* Trace file reader can now deal with Open/LibreOffice generated files.
* Add timefomat1 and timeformat2 attributes to set calendar column headers.
* Add report columns 'scheduling' to show the scheduling mode of leaf tasks.
* Priority inversions now generate a warning.
* 'competitors' and 'competitorcount' columns added.
* Better documentation of the task scheduler in the user manual.
* Support raw HTML fragments inlined into rich text strings.
* Added 'rawhtmlhead' attribute to insert HTML fragments into the HTML head section.
* Major performance improvements for reports using targets and inputs.
* Adding --report and --reports option to tj3.

More Information

TaskJuggler is a modern and powerful, Free and Open Source Software project 
management tool. Its new approach to project planing and tracking is more 
flexible and superior to the commonly used Gantt chart editing tools. 
TaskJuggler is project management software for serious project managers. It 
covers the complete spectrum of project management tasks from the first 
idea to the completion of the project. It assists you during project 
scoping, resource assignment, cost and revenue planing, risk and 
communication management.

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 
consistency checker offload you from having to worry about irrelevant 
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.

TaskJuggler is a Ruby application that runs on Linux, Unix-like systems, Windows and MacOS.
