Bug fixes. And getting things ready for deep-linking.

May 30, 2022

Android & iOS, version 3.5.1

Significant rewrite of the app for performance. Lots of underlying foundational work to allow for future development. (For the nerd curious, we migrated from Cordova to Capacitor!) We also updated the in-app purchase/subscription flow to support both iOS and Android devices.

Maintenance release / bug fixes. 🤖

March 23, 2021

MacOS & Windows, version 3.5.9

Nirvana Desktop now sports spell chekcing checking. Right-click as needed. We’ve also put the app through the paces on our new Apple Silicon M1 computers and all appears to be working smoothly. 😀

Web App, build 1616523124

Fixed a Firefox-specific bug where attempting to remove tags from a task or project would always leave one tag behind. Now you should be able to go tag-free again!

March 16, 2021

MacOS & Windows, version 3.5.8
Web App, build 1615584906

Fixed a bug where Tags > All would get deselected when switching areas. Tweaked the global area pulldown menu in the top nav to scroll, allowing for many more areas than we ever thought anyone would ever need.

February 3, 2021

Web App, build 1612370450

A quick maintenance release to fix an issue on Windows 10 where pressing the windows key was triggering the left nav to run up towards the Inbox. You should now be able to windows+tab around (as one does) and still find Nirvana as you left it when you come back.

September 15, 2020

Android, version 3.4.9

Fixed a bug that was causing users to get stuck in an endless loop if they taped “deny” on sharing access to their calendar. Sorry about this!

August 31, 2020

iOS & Android, version 3.4.8

This update brings the design language of the mobile apps in line with recent changes to the web and desktop apps. Which means that among other nice and tidy tweaks, Dark Mode 👽 is finally here! And a new feature specific to mobile, we now list your Calendar Events 🗓 for the day at the top of Focus. Super minimal, but super handy.

MacOS & Windows, version 3.5.6

The first generally available release (as open beta) of the desktop apps, linked to directly from the main Nirvana website! Minor bug fixes since v3.5.5 that bring the code in line with with the most recent July 31 Web App release (see below for deets).

July 31, 2020

Web App, build 1596197929

Upon further reflection, Dark Mode should really be for everyone. The bean counters want to monetize, the product people just want life to be better for all… this round goes to the product peeps. 👍🏼

Also, some fixes. And give a shout out to über-mensch-bug-finder Mateusz for reporting these:

  • Left nav, right-click to empty trash works again.
  • Multiple tags in task dialog now correctly word-wraps when there are enough tags to warrant it.

July 16, 2020

Web App, build 1594938421
Desktop App, version 3.5.4 (macOS & windows 10)

Fixed: Rapid Entry text input colors legible again when background color set to Slate; Expanded task notes now word-wrap at window width again, rather than at 600px!

July 10, 2020

Web App, build 1594397898

  • Keyboard navigation enhancements — Select tasks with up/down arrow keys; shift+up/down to select multiple tasks; option+up/down to move selected tasks; with tasks selected, right arrow to show notes, left arrow to hide notes, enter to edit, then enter to save changes; n key inserts a new task just below selected tasks; and bracket keys [ and ] are now what we use to traversing lists in the left navi.
  • Drag-select fixes — Select tasks like you would select files and folders on your computer’s desktop, then right-click for options or drag selected items to another list.
  • Use your browser’s back button to navigate to the previous list you were looking at. Forward button works as well, of course. Which means you can now permalink to a specific list or project too.
  • Is it July 10, 2020 or 10 July 2020? Finally, an app setting for this.
  • Legibility improvements — no more tiny fonts, and color contrast has been increased to help reduce eye strain.
  • Dark mode is now a Nirvana Pro feature (🙏🏼 thanks for supporting us!)
  • Updated tons of underlying code libraries to latest versions.
  • Updated tons of underlying code to enable theming and internationalization (in an upcoming release). 

July 10, 2020

Desktop App, version 3.5.3 (macOS & windows 10)

Fixed a regression where right-clicking on a task (to bring up the context menu) wasn’t displaying scroll bars if there were too many items to fit within the app window.

July 9, 2020

Desktop App, version 3.5.2 (macOS & windows 10)

  • Keyboard navigation enhancements — Select tasks with up/down arrow keys; shift+up/down to select multiple tasks; option+up/down to move selected tasks; with tasks selected, right arrow to show notes, left arrow to hide notes, enter to edit, then enter to save changes; n key inserts a new task just below selected tasks; and bracket keys [ and ] are now what we use to traversing lists in the left navi.

March 31, 2020

Desktop App, version 3.2.16 (macOS)
Fixed an issue where trying to launch macOS app resulted in warning dialog preventing the app from running on macOS 10.15 “Catalina”

Focus Emails
Now that our mobile apps support deep linking we’ve updated Focus email links – when clicked they can now launch the Nirvana app rather than always defaulting to the mobile website.

March 18, 2020

Desktop App, version 3.2.14
Minor update to help us debug some bugs. We also needed to release this build to match our new code-signing certificates.

March 11, 2020

iOS App, version 3.4.7
iPad Split View! Finally! This version also brings the iOS app up to par with our recent Android release. If you’re in the Beta group you’ll get this update via TestFlight. For everyone else, you’ll get this just as soon as the Apple gatekeepers approve it for the ol’ AppStore.

February 26, 2020

Android App, version 3.4.6
After waaaaay too many moons we’re finally releasing an updated Nirvana for the latest Android phones. ⭐️ For those on the Beta channel you should see this arrive on your devices shortly. Many bugs squashed of our own fixing, many more because we’re now using the latest libraries that prop up our code under the hood. This update is a necessary stepping stone towards new feature development. Note: you’ll need Android 7 or better.

February 18, 2020

Web App, build 1582066800
We discontinued the sneaky ability to load Nirvana in a web browser without an internet connection. As we’re in the process of modernizing our code across all platforms, rather than trying to maintain this feature we decided to build standalone apps for Mac and Windows for your offline productivity pleasure. If you were of the select few who even knew how to run Nirvana offline in a web browser, fear not! — Install our desktop app on your laptop and you’ll feel right at home on that WiFi-less trans-oceanic flight. ✈️

October 9, 2019

Desktop App, version 3.2.12
New Stuff: Choose your preferred date format (mm/dd or dd/mm). Dark Mode. 👽 Fixed a bug in tag manager that was causing all new tags to be created as Areas. Cool.

July 10, 2019

Desktop App, version 3.2.11
Cleaner macOS installation UX. Fixed a few bugs related to Later actions. 📌Code cleanup / supporting library updates.

June 5, 2019

Desktop App, version 3.2.10
A bunch of users were getting stuck on a “loading…” screen right after logging in.  🥾Not very helpful that.  This version should help everyone get on to their todos.
