Description:

General Idea:
With TuxCards it is possible to create as many different entries or notes as you wish. Everytime you add a new one and you think your new entry belongs to the same topic as notes you already have, then you may decide to group them and to create a kind of "folder" where you store them all together. Just the same like you would put your books and paperwork from your job together in one place and not to the garden utilities (unless you work as a gardener)..

With TuxCards you have a tool at your hand to enter and manage every kind of notes and ideas in a structured manner. This makes it much more easier to find them as you are in need.

Specialities:
* Notes can be composed using richtext elements.
* There are no theoretical/practical limits on the tree-depth, on the quantity of the items and on the size of the notes.
* At every start, TuxCards will automatically load your last datas.
The tree-structure (on the left side) is also reproduced as it was found at your last saving.
* Drag & Drop of entries between completely different TuxCards applications is possible. Just try it. ;-)
* Create notes with an expiration date.
* Cactus-Support, expandable with own flower images.
* Command line options (try tuxcards -h).
* Support of cygwin version as well of a statically linked binary.

Whats's new in version 1.1?

* Recent file list to handle multiple files. Also, the last active entry will be remembered for every data-file.
* Expiring notes: A date may be added to every entry. At every start of the program, it is checked whether the date is passed. If so a dialog will ask to confirm the deletion of old notes from the file. This makes it easy to keep householding and easy removal of temporarily needed entries.
This feature can also be used to be informed of upcoming events.
Expiring dates may be set within the property dialog of the entry.
* Richtext enhancements: use various ordered or bullet lists via the toolbar. Also different fonts and font sizes may be used within every entry.
* Executing arbitrary commands after saving is possible by now. See options to enter a command.
* The current date respectively the current time may be insert into the text cursor position via the Extras menu.
* The program is faster to use since new keyboard actions have been introduced. Also the keyboard focus is placed within the textfield when creating new entries.
* Last but not least: A statically linked binary is available, thus the TuxCards may be used without compilation.

Please note: Due to the recent file list and to expiring entries the xml-format of the saved data has changed slightly. Backwards compatibility is garuanteed; if you have used xsl transformations you might adapted your files.
