Workrave 1.6.0 released

The Windows version of Workrave now includes a taskbar applet version of the status window. Timers can be configured to ignore activity. Improved full-screen "Block all" mode. Chinese, Russian and French translations have been added.

  • Workrave has been translated into Chinese thanks to Rex Tsai, into Russian thanks to Sergey Kirkinsky, and into French thanks to Thomas Basset and Benjamin Siband.
  • The explanation of an exercise is now scrollable, if it does not fit onscreen.
  • The Windows version now includes a taskbar applet version of the status window. After installation of Workrave, right click your taskbar and select "Workrave" from the list of toolbars.
  • Timers can be configured to ignore activity.
  • Bloat removal: removed the "Resets at" option from the daily limit panel.
  • Exercises are no longer read at program startup, and are released from memory when not needed anymore.
  • Terminology: we now use the term "micro-break" instead of "micro-pause".
  • When block mode "Block all" is used, we display the break window on top of your current desktop background (wallpaper), instead of on a semi-transparent screen snapshot.
  • Fixed screen locking on X11: previously only xlock was detected and used without passing a display parameter. Now, the proper screen lock command is invoked on the right display. For example, if KDE is detected its kdesktop_lock is executed.
  • High-profile bug fixes (Windows): activity monitoring when working in Exceed has been restored, and ZoneLab interaction problems (hangups) have been corrected.
