2024 / wk 17-18 / v.298-300

  • improvedWHAT HAPPENED? -> We are now showing more details whenever a command node fails to run. (Commands)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where times in calendar would show an extra minute (like 12:30-13:01) (Dates and calendar nodes)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where the query builder under a heading would look strange. (Search nodes, Nodes and references)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where clicking to move a node in Finder while holding 'Alt' would not leave a reference. (Nodes and references)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where calendar events created in one time zone would not take into account other users' time zone when displaying. (Dates and calendar nodes)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where clicking on ... in the breadcrumbs in a search would open the node instead of expanding the breadcrumb (Nodes and references)
  • fixedWe fixed some issues with Chinese editing (Nodes and references)

  • fixedDropdown menu for fields now has max height, to always fit with the screen! (Fields)
  • improvedWe've made a change to selecting nodes and executing commands using keyboard only: We will no longer show node toolbar until the mouse has been moved.

  • fixedWe fixed an issue with command nodes that may contain commands that live external to the current workspace. (Commands)

2024 / wk 16 / v.296-297

  • fixedInline refs inside of references (nodes that live elsewhere), were rendered without color. Now, however... 🌈🏳️‍🌈🖍️🎨 (Nodes and references)
  • fixedCreating a node inside live searches was some times difficult (the darn things locked up after the first letter you typed. ) Now however... ⌨️ 🔡 (Search nodes)
  • improvedWe updated to the latest GPT 4 model. (AI for builders)
  • fixedWe fixed some bugs for live searches. The button sometimes said "Close query editor" even if query editor was not open. Now, however... case closed. (Search nodes)
  • fixedWe are reversing a change where shift+enter in a field value would move below the entire field. Now, it lets you insert a node straight below the current one. (Fields)
  • newYou can now (optionally) select a “base” type for your supertags. This allows you to specify broadly speaking what kind of tag something is. E.g. if you have tags ‘bug fix’ and ‘home improvement’ they could both be classified as type ‘Task’ if you feel they are things that “should be done”. We’ve added a number of categories to start with. (Supertags)
  • improvedWe should now be better at restoring scroll position when navigating between nodes (Nodes and references)
  • improvedWe added playback speed config to the audio player. You can now listen to yourself twice as fast. ⏩ (Nodes and references)
  • improvedUsing a '#' in a search will now strictly filter on matching tags if they exist so '#fruit du' should only find nodes tagged with fruit that has a word starting with 'du' in it. Search ranking has also been improved some, it will now only do a fuzzy search if there aren't enough 'strict' matches. (Nodes and references)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where Previous/Next on calendar nodes always took you to a day node (even if you were on a week/month/year node) (Dates and calendar nodes)

2024 / wk 15 / v.295

  • improvedAfter a lot of community feedback regarding recent changes we made to field availability in autocompleter based on where they lived, now letting you also retrieve fields that are owned by other supertag templates in field auto-completer (Fields, Supertags)
  • infoFor a smoother navigation experience, we've now made inline references more akin to the way traditional links work. They now show up in blue, and clicking on an inline ref will now open it directly. Right-clicking the inline ref will show the context menu or toolbar, depending on whether the context is a node or a reference. (Nodes and references, Navigation)
  • fixedFixed bug where you could not move cursor past a date field (Navigation)
  • fixedTag filtering search now respects "Allow from" (Supertags)

2024 / wk 14 / v.293-294

  • improvedWe got keyboard shortcut for "Create new" - Alt+n for Windows/Linux, Ctrl+n for Mac! (Also: Reminder that you can open the Create new panel in the right or top dock by holding Cmd/Ctrl (right) or Shift (top) when you click on the button.) (Nodes and references)
  • improvedAnd, we got a "Create new in..." command line, including the option to create directly on daily page in other workspaces. (Nodes and references)
  • improvedYou can now close all message/error Toasts by holding down Shift or Alt when clicking the 'x' close button (and be sure to yell "you're all toast!" while you're at it for extra effect) (Account settings)
  • improvedLINKS_TO search expression clause should now work on calendar nodes by treating it as a date. Talk about being friend-zoned... (Search nodes, Dates and calendar nodes)
  • fixedWe fixed the 404 error page for Publish pages (which, ironically, you won't ever see unless something is broken) (Tana publish)
  • fixedThe keyboard cursor was 'lost' sometimes after clicking the 'search dot' to close the search explanation popover. We put plenty of wayfinding now to prevent this from happening in the future. (Search nodes)
  • fixedBrought back the 'Display' option on Table view (we were wondering when someone was going to notice that it was gone!) (Views)
  • fixedSome unlinked references no longer showed up in reference section due to personal apostrophic reasons, but we managed to convince them to come back so hooray! (Nodes and references)
  • fixedPasting a bulleted list from Google Docs removed all formatting, but now works again. Things really fell flat on this one. (Nodes and references)
  • fixedWe changed something, then some users said using Tab for inserting dates doesn't work anymore, so using Tab to insert your @-mention selection works (again?). Now, the question is: who picks up the Tab on the second date? (Dates and calendar nodes, Nodes and references)
  • fixedFixed bug where fields from the tag you are configuring did not show up when configuring Done state mapping. We do not like no-shows. (Supertags)
  • infoFor historical reasons, specifying the current theme has two settings ("Dark mode" and "Use System theme"). Before, "Dark Mode" always won if both where set, but we're trying this new thing called "respecting user's preferences", so "System theme" wins instead. (Account settings)

  • newThere are now three sizes of headings - these are set automatically, based on nesting. The headings are relative to the closest item with a heading. If you zoom in to a parent of the smallest heading, the smallest heading will become the largest heading. It's like growing up. (Nodes and references)
  • fixedWe fixed a bug where numbers in fixed options, in options fields, were inserted as plain values, not references. (Nodes and references, Fields)
  • fixedWe now notify the user (you) if the prompt in prompt workbench is too long for the AI model selected. (AI for builders)

  • improvedYou can now use CHILD OF with a field definition to point to a field on the node that owns the search. So a search under "Brage" set up with: - "PARENTS DESCENDANTS", - and >CHILD OF::Properties. Would find "awesome" and "release note aficionado" (Search nodes)

Tag defs when you hit # is now back. (Search nodes)

  • fixedNodes from templates lost their color temporarily, but they have now gotten it back. Good for them. (Nodes and references, Supertags)
  • improvedResponses from AI are now streamed character-by-character instead of line-by-line, which means you'll start seeing data way earlier than before when doing AI requests. (This does not apply to all AI features yet, but gradually more and more.) (AI for builders)

  • infoRenamed "Run command on all children" to "Run commands on all children currently visible in the view", which reflects the specific behaviour of the original command that it only ran on children based on what was currently in view. It respects the current search query (which may not be saved), and filtered results. (Commands)
  • newThere's a new command called "Run command on all children" which runs on all children based on original search queries and no filters applied. In other words, it ignores any changes to the list made by filters and/or unsaved search node queries. (Commands)
