GanttProject 2.8.11 hotfix update

A new build 2396 of GanttProject 2.8.11 is available from our website: https://www.ganttproject.biz/download

It fixes a few severe issues:
-- macOS: only English, Galician and Tajik languages are available in the settings UI;
-- Linux: ganttproject launcher won't open files when using relative paths;
-- all platforms: visible columns in the task and resource tables reset to default after undo operations or on file opening;


Version number remains the same, only build number has changed.

If you already downloaded GP 2.8.11-r2393, we strongly recommend to download the new build.

GanttProject is now available from Microsoft Store

GanttProject application with bundled Java Runtime is now available from Microsoft Store. We hope that this will make it easy to install on portable Windows devices, such as Microsoft Surface.



Please notice that this app is marked as unofficial. It was packaged by Hauke Hasselberg independently on his own initiative, and we can't provide support with respect to packaging issues, should they arise. However, it is the same GanttProject which you can download from our official locations and we do provide the same best-effort support for packaging- and device-independent functionality.

GanttProject 2.8.8: better usability, compatibility and localization

GanttProject 2.8.8 is here with a bunch of important updates. Thanks everyone who sent us bug reports and participated in testing!

Here is a brief overview of the updates.

Usability

First, annoying behavior of selection and cell editing in the task table which was introduced in 2.8.7 is now fixed. We also added some padding around cell values to separate adjacent right- and left- aligned cells.


Tasks in the predecessor dropdown in the task properties are now indented according to WBS and prefixed with task ID.



Compatibility

It turned out that GanttProject had issues when running under Java 10: MS Project import/export didn't work and macOS users had issues with launching GanttProject by double-clicking gan files. These issues are solved in 2.8.8. Besides, macOS users can now drag tasks on the chart using mouse with Command key hold. On other platforms it works with Control key hold but on macOS Ctrl+mouse click would show a context menu.

Export/Import enhancements

Two columns were added to CSV export/import: task color and resource load on particular tasks. The latter can be used for your own calculations of the total resource loads and costs in spreadsheets and databases. This column is called Assignments and it accompanies older column Resources, so you will find them both in the produced CSV files.

The values in Assignments column are semicolon-separated pairs of resource id and load which are in turn colon-separated. Thus, the value 1:50.00;2:100.00 means that the load of resource with id "1" in this task is 50%, while resource 2 works 100% of his time.

Import from Microsoft Project now recognizes recurring holidays in the default project calendar.

Localization

Great news for Chinese, Japanese and Korean users: task table in PDF reports is expected to be fixed and should show symbols properly, provided that you use an appropriate embeddable application font. On the screenshot below WengQuanYi Micro Hei font was used.

New holiday calendar for South Korea has been contributed by one of our users.

Bugfixes

Weird bug "no enum constant" which appeared when reading certain projects is now fixed. Another very annoying issue with adding whitespace in task notes on Windows platforms is fixed as well.

Download

Packages for Windows, macOS, Ubuntu/Mint/Debian Linux and platform-independent ZIP archive are available from the download page on ganttproject.biz

In this update mouse wheel behavior made more consistent with other apps and GanttProject itself.
  • Mouse wheel rotation will vertically scroll chart no matter if the mouse pointer is over the table or chart area.
  • If Shift is hold, mouse wheel will scroll a chart horizontally.
  • If Ctrl is hold mouse wheel rotation will change zooming.
We also restored a keyboard shortcut  Ctrl+Space  which expands/collapses task nodes. Discover other useful shortcuts which will make you more productive!
