N2 Build 186 – Evil Tags Begone

N2 Build 186 has been pushed live.  Another maintenance release, but a rather excellent one for those who have been experiencing problems with tags.  We took a stab at stabbing the ampersand bug.  With any luck N2 should no longer get confused by them.  (for the technically inclined: we no longer deal in html entities)

Also, we made the decision to disallow double quotes and angle brackets from tag names.  Any occurrence of double quotes or angle brackets will be stripped out.  Please accept our apologies if you were using these in your tags… our hope is that you can find alternate characters to substitute.

In the eye-candy department, the Sync button now has a nifty little status indicator light.

As always, release notes are here:

  4. heya,

    Is it just me, or has the rapid create field that used to be at the bottom (and that you accessed with tab) disappeared?

    Can’t seem to see it on mine anymore?

    This is on Nirvana N2 Build 189, on Google Chrome.

  6. @Victor Hooi It’s now an option that can be toggled on or off. Did you happen to turn it off? It’s under Account Settings.

  8. When do you plan to implement an API?

  10. @adam – In the coming weeks. We’ve brought on a new person who will be focused on getting our API documented for ready public access.

Nirvana is a secure, cloud-based GTD® task manager accessible from your desktop web browser and mobile devices.

Free your mind to focus on actually getting things done. If you've had enough of generic to-do lists, create a free account today.

What is GTD®?

GTD® rests on the principle that a person needs to move tasks out of the mind by recording them externally. That way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can concentrate on actually performing those tasks.
