New in this release

  • Working with sub-tasks.

  • Sorting issues by creation date from newest to oldest.

Fixed in this release

  • Now issue description is being rendered from Wiki markup to HTML. 
  • Improved behaviour in cases when user with no proper permissions attempts to add a new issue or comment, edit issues.  
  • Improved behaviour in cases when you copy a fragment of issue summary or description on the sidebar.


 Working with sub-tasks

Before, Plain Tasks didn't support working with sub-tasks. Now you can work with existing sub-tasks or create new ones right in Plain Tasks.

To create a new sub-task:

  1. hover your mouse over a parent issue you want to add a sub-task to;
  2. click  in the end of the issue summary;
  3. type sub-task summary in the text box and press 'Enter' or 'Ctrl+Enter';
  4. the sub-task is created with the default assignee, type and priority and no description.

Creating, editing, viewing details, resolving and reopening sub-tasks work the same way as when performing those actions with issues.



Sorting issues by creation date from newest to oldest 

Before, you could sort issues by Priority or Created. When sorting by date created, issues were ordered from oldest to newest.

Sometimes it's very convenient to be able to view issues sorted by their creation date in the reverse order, from newest to oldest. Now you can do that.

If issues are sorted by their creation date 'from oldest to newest' and you want to change sorting to 'from newest to oldest', click the Created button. If you want to go back to viewing issues sorted from oldest to newest, click Created once again. To order issues by priority, click Priority.
