New release (1.0.1062)

A new release of Worklog Assistant is available:
My favourite new feature is the ability to add an arbitrary set of issues to any returned filter. This feature was suggested by a user (thanks Sarah!) and I managed to go through a couple of iterations with a user online who was very helpful in pointing out issues and potential improvements (thanks Andy!) I can already tell you how useful this feature has been for me:
  • I marked TRACKER-118 (the above feature) as completed
  • Andy informed me of some usability issues
  • I typed in TRACKER-118 into the field, hit Enter
  • Right-clicked issue -> Workflow -> Reopen issue
  • Double-click to start tracking time again
Pretty sweet.

Support for custom fields (the biggest feature request) are almost completed in a branch and I hope to upload that to the beta site in the next few days. If you are interested in custom fields, please do try it out. I will make an announcement here when it is available. Note that support for custom fields (as well as some other features) will require installation of a RPC plugin to JIRA.

The Mac port is so close to complete, I am pretty upset that it isn't. The only issue is that I cannot get the darn icon to show up as the icon for the app bundle. If anyone reading would like to help me with that, send me an email and I'll send you the bundle. Otherwise I expect this to be uploaded to the beta site as well in the next few days once this issue is solved.

Thanks and have a good week!
