On November 11, 2010 we made the upcoming Nirvana 2, a work-in-progress, available for preview. We are very very excited about the reception it has received thus far. We are letting the adventurous take it for a spin so that we can learn where we stand on a number of engineering related issues.
Some key points about Nirvana 2:
It is a complete rewrite from the ground up
It will run offline, without an internet connection
UI interaction is completely decoupled from network i/o, so it’s wicked fast
It has full internationalization support built in under the hood
It runs completely on top of the new Nirvana API
It is still a work in progress, and browser support is still limited

While we’ve been busy working on new features, we’ve also decided to loop back and improve on some existing features that people have been requesting. As our mission is to make the experience of GTD as intuitive and effortless as possible, we’re always looking at ways to remove clutter, makes things faster, and help size up your next action without wasting precious brain cycles.
Check out the screencast below to see where we’re headed.
We’re working out the kinks this week and hope to have these changes rolled out soon.
We’re close… we’re really really close. In fact, Areas of Responsibility in the desktop browser version is ready to ship! BUT, we realized (in hindsight, like idiots) that we need to make some significant modifications to the mobile version so as to not muck things up for those of you who bounce between desktop and mobile Nirvana, which a lot of folks do. Specifically, the mobile version doesn’t retain assigned Areas at present, and there is no way to filter or move tasks/projects between Areas. But we’re on the case.
Timeframe? I’d say single digit days away from release. Thanks for understanding.
