Workrave 1.8.3 released

New Swedish and Catalan translations, updates to Czech translation. Workrave no longer consumes 100% CPU is if a break is started while the screen is locked. Fixed a bug that could cause breaks to stop running when 'Suspend timer while inactive' was disabled. Added support for storing configuration in a .ini file, and for configuring the data storage directory (this can be used to run Workrave from a memory stick). GNOME screen saver support added. The applet popup menu is now accessible when all timers hidden.

  • Daniel Nylander translated Workrave into Swedish.
  • Jordi Mallach translated Workrave into Catalan.
  • Support for storing configuration in a .ini file. This feature can be enabled by creating an empty 'workrave.ini' file in '/.workrave' (on Unix) or in 'c:\Program files\Workrave\etc' (on Window, assuming Workrave is installed in this directory)
  • Support for configuring the data storage directory. This feature can be used to run Workrave from an USB memory stick. Add the following two lines to your workrave.ini
