Version 1.11 (beta) comes with three main features: idle tracking, column sorting and improved memory usage and performance.
This feature prevents TTP from tracking stuff when you’re away from the computer. Right now the idle setting is 5 minutes. After 5 mins of idle time, TTP stops tracking activities until you start using the computer again. Currently it’s a hardcoded setting but will soon be a configurable setting in the preferences.
Of course, if you know in advance that you’ll be stepping away from the computer, the best thing to do is to toggle the tracking manually via the status menu (on your top status bar, to the left of the clock).
You can now sort the application and document table (the left panel) by clicking the header titles. Sort by name or time in both ascending or descending order.
Improved memory usage and performance
I’ve changed how the data is stored which results in quicker performance and less memory usage. The biggest change is that TTP 1.11 (and on) will be using a different data store for storing your data.
This means when you first install 1.11, you will start with a fresh (empty) data. Future releases will use this file ensuring your data will be portable. Creating a new file was necessary due to a more efficient data storage format.
