-- New release: gnome-schedule 1.0 --
Gnome-schedule 1.0 has been released. Gnome-schedule is a grapichal user
interface to 'crontab' and 'at', both used to schedule tasks. It
supports periodical tasks and tasks that happens once in the future. It
is written in python using pygtk.
The new release contains a bunch of bugfixes and we consider it stable,
it has been tested and developed on a variety of distributions, like
gentoo, ubuntu, slackware, foresight, fedora and so on. It supports the
most popular cron daemons, 'vixie-cron' and 'dcron'. It uses one of the
standard dateformats for 'at' so it should work on most locales.
Gnome-schedule also supports titles and icons for your tasks so that
they are more easily to keep track of. And you can create templates so
that you won't have to create the same task again and again. So that if
you want to schedule a virus check at 03:00 today, you can save it as a
template and choose it from an dropdown box when you want. Or want to
compile the kernel.. again.. at 00:00. This is saved in gconf and may
easily be shipped with each distribution.
-- Major new features --
* An applet where you from an dropdown menu can choose to add a task,
manage tasks and get help.
* A completly rewritten manual with fancy screenshots.
* Refreshing of tasks.
* And a some smaller ones.
-- Additional features --
* If run as root you can edit any users 'crontab' and 'at' tasks.
* A parser that translates 'crontab' entries into human readable strings
like 'Every hour' and not '0 * * * *' which might seem confusing to
* You can choose to use advanced mode which will display the tasks in a
different way, where you can see the 'crontab' entries like you are used
* As mentioned you can set a title and an icon for tasks.
* Create templates like 'Virus check' or 'Compile kernel'.
* Predefined common expressions like: every minute, every week,
tomorrow, next week.
* You may use an calendar to browse for the day you want a task
