Change Logs

* Sun Nov 28 2021 Dirk Müller <>
- update to 2.6.1:
  - The logic behind new-uuid verbosity option changed. New-uuid now overrides
    new-id if set and will cause Taskwarrior to display UUIDs instead of IDs
    for new tasks (machine friendly).
  - If ~/.taskrc is not found, Taskwarrior will look for its configuration in
    $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/task/taskrc (defaulting to ~/.config/task/taskrc). This
    allows users to setup their Taskwarrior to follow XDG standard without
    using config overrides.
  - Newer Unicode characters, such as emojis are correctly handled and displayed.
    Taskwarrior now supports all Unicode characters up to Unicode 12.
  - Datetime values until year 9999 are now supported.
    Duration values of up to 1 000 000 years are now supported.
  - 64-bit numeric values (up to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807) are now supported.
  - Later/someday named datetime values now resolve to 9999-12-30 (instead of
  - Calendar now supports displaying due dates until year 9999.
  - Calendar now displays waiting tasks with due dates on the calendar.
  - Calendar supports highlighting days with scheduled tasks.
  - Multi-day holidays are now supported.
  - Holiday data files for fr-CA, hu-HU, pt-BR, sk-SK and sv-FI locales are now
    generated and shipped with Taskwarrior.
  - The task edit command can now handle multi-line annotations and UDAs in a
    user friendly way, withouth having to handle with JSON escaping of special
  - A large portion of currently known parser-related issues was fixed.
  - The taskrc file now supports relative paths, which are evaluated with
    respect to (a) current directory, (b) taskrc directory and (c) now also the
    installation directory of configuration files.
  - The currently selected context is now applied for "task add" and "task log"
    commands. Section on contexts in the manpage was updated to describe this
  - Users can specify per-context specific overrides of configuration variables.
  - The `task import` command can now accept annotations with missing entry
    values. Current time will be assumed.
  - The new 'by' filter attribute modifier compares using '<=' rather than '<'
    as 'before' uses.  This allows the last second of the day to match with
    '', which it would not otherwise.  It also works with
    whole units like days, e.g. 'add test due:2021-07-17' would not match
    'due.before:tomorrow' (on the 16th), but would match ''.
  - Waiting is now an entirely "virtual" concept, based on a task's
    'wait' property and the current time. Task is considered "waiting" if its
    wait attribute is in the future. TaskWarrior no longer explicitly
    "unwaits" a task (the wait attribute is not removed once its value is in
    the past), so the "unwait' verbosity token is no longer available.
    This allows for filtering for tasks that were waiting in the past
    intervals, but are not waiting anymore.
  - The configuration file now supports environment variables.
  - Taskwarrior can now handle displaying tasks in windows with limited width,
    even if columns contain long strings (like URLs).
  - The nag message is emitted at most once per task command, even with bulk
    operations. Additionally, the urgency of the task considered is taken
    before the completion, not after.
  - The export command now takes an optional argument that references an
    existing report. As such, "task export <report>" command will export
    the same tasks that "task <report>" prints, and in the same order.
  - The burndown command now supports non-cumulative display, where tasks only
    get plotted within the interval segment when they got completed.
