What's New

As it is with all our updates, this one brings a boat load of new and improved features, usability improvements and overall performance improvements. We’ve improved every aspect of the app to feel snappier, smooth and efficient in every way.

What’s New:

[NEW] Automatic Push sync between iOS and Mac. Changes now sync faster, even if you’re using your own custom CalDAV server.
[NEW] List Groups can now be selected to list all tasks from contained lists.
[NEW] Search field now supports a new keyword ‘groups:’. You can, for example, use these to filter on only tasks from these list groups:
type: inprogress groups: home, work
groups: !work
mom tags: shop groups: home

and so on.

[NEW] Due to popular demand - Scheduled sub-tasks now get hidden till its time for them to be shown. You can toggle their display using the global Show / Hide Scheduled Tasks toggle button.
[NEW] You can now change the type of the task when using Quick Entry
[NEW] Improvements to Full Screen and Split view support for El-Capitan
[NEW] New shortcuts added to make it easier to jump to a particular property, such as editing dates, while in edit mode.
[NEW] Batch defer / schedule / duration popup can now be performed by selecting a bunch of tasks and using the new shortcuts: ‘D’ or ‘K’
[NEW] Additional keyboard shortcuts added to Menu > Task, while some have changed to make room
[NEW] Due date / start date manipulating shortcuts now work even if the tasks previously did not have a date on them
[NEW] Lots of performance improvements, visual tweaks, fluid transitions when editing or manipulating tasks
[NEW] Drag and drop files on to a task directly to store links into notes, without first editing a task
[NEW] A hint bar now replaces the Sort Bar when editing a task
[NEW] A new interactive Welcome screen that serves as an introduction to 2Do and showcases some of its key features. You can use the left / right keyboard keys to navigate.

[IMPROVEMENT] Hitting the down arrow key when the search field is focus now sends focus to the task list
[IMPROVEMENT] Clicking on an attached photo, you can now download the photo to disk using the new ‘download’ button
[IMPROVEMENT] Email links (i.e. when an email gets dragged onto a task) now get de-coded before getting stored, thus allowing these links to be opened from iOS as well (provided you have the same mail accounts setup)
[IMPROVEMENT] An image dropped on a task now gets assigned as an attachment instead of a link. If two or more images are dropped, the first one becomes an attachment while the rest get stored as links
[IMPROVEMENT] Improved performance of task drag and drop events
[IMPROVEMENT] Changing a list when editing a task no longer ends ending, and instead allows the user to finish editing before moving the task to the new location
[IMPROVEMENT] Improvements to how the task selection is maintained in case a task is deleted or scheduled and it disappears from the list. This further improves the experience for users that prefer using the keyboard directly more often.
[IMPROVEMENT] When an action is being added and one is clicked, hitting ESC now returns to the main selection instead of closing the popup
[IMPROVEMENT] Improved detection of network availability

Tons and tons of small little improvements, tweaks, fixes etc that should result in a better end user experience.
