CherryTomato version 0.5 is now out.
In terms of features, this is a small release. But in terms of internal architecture, lots have changed. This is the first release after it was open sourced. Most of this release was contributed by Kore Sar – many thanks!
Some of the changes that you will notice are in the evaluation dialog – you can select the tasks that you consider productive and have a suggested rating from that (along with an indication of when during the 25 minutes this took place).
The reminders system has been developed quite a bit – you can now add an “after pomodoro reminder” that will always remind you after x minutes. Though there aren’t many other features yet, the system is quite extendable so you can expect more reminder types and features in the future.
Also, included in this version is a plugin for this USB lamp that will go red when you are in pomodoro. Works great if the person next to you doesn’t have you on Skype and doesn’t know if it’s safe to disturb you
