commands are supported (thanks to Bruce Dillahunty, Federico Hernandez,
and John Florian).
- New "recurring" report to list all recurring tasks.
- New, more flexible, more consistent, grep-able file format.
- If task is renamed to "cal", or there is a symlink to task called "cal",
then task can act as a replacement for the Unix "cal" command.

filtering, for example "task list due.before:friday", or "task list
pri.not:H" and many more.

- Now supports colorization of the header and footnote messages that are
printed before and after report output, with the 'color.header' and
'color.footnote' configuration variables.

are shown, for example: "task list limit:10".

when reporting a problem. Just run the command with "task rc.debug:on ..."
and diagnostics will be generated that will help pinpoint a problem.

with a complete undo stack that can rollback all changes.
- While waiting for a file lock, task states the reason for the delay.
- Now supports a 'waiting' state that causes tasks to not appear until
a certain date, for example "task <ID> wait:<date>". The task
will then not show up on any report (except 'all') until that date.
- The "active", "completed", "overdue" and "next" reports are now custom
reports, and therefore modifiable.
- Now supports a 'waiting' custom report to list all waiting tasks.

- Now supports an 'all' report to list all tasks, including deleted
- Supports command aliases - create an alias for any command by creating
a .taskrc entry like "alias.new_name=old_name".

month if a task was added during that month.
- New command "duplicate" which allow existing task(s) to be duplicated,

- Fixed bug that causes task to create a default .task directory, even if
data.location specified otherwise (thanks to Federico Hernandez).
- New "edit" command that fires up a text editor (uses 'editor' configuration
variable, $VISUAL or $EDITOR environment variable) and allows direct
editing of all editable task details.

frequency, a due date, and an optional until date.
- When a recurring task is modified, all other instances of the recurring
task are also modified.
- Custom reports now support user-specified column labels (thanks to T.
Charles Yun).
- Task can now import tasks from a variety of data formats, including task
export files from versions 1.4.3 and earlier, versions 1.5.0 and later, 2.x, CSV, plain text and task command line. See online docs for
full details.
- Export was including 'id' in the column header even though it was not
included in the data.

in the configuration file can be renamed. Several of task's built in
reports have been converted to user-defined reports.
- New online documentation for custom reports.
- New algorithm for determining when the "nag" message is displayed.

- Bug: Source now properly includes <string.h> in order to build clean
using gcc 4.3 (thanks to H. İbrahim Güngör).
