6.15. Version 2.4 (January 31, 2011)

This version has an improved user interface that is optimized for Mac OS X and Windows 7. It can also integrate with QuickBooks Pro. Here's a list with all the changes:

New Features

  • User interface

    • All

      • New toolbar icons.

      • The timer display has been moved from the status bar to the toolbar.

      • The toolbar has an info button that can be used when the timer is running to attach a description.

      • Each view now has the buttons on the left and the totals on the right.

      • The project and client filters can now be accessed using the button placed below the tree.

    • Mac OS X 10.4+

      • New Mac OS X-like user interface.

      • New Preferences pane.

      • The timer can be accessed from the dock icon menu besides the menu bar icon.

    • Windows 7

      • New Windows 7-like user interface.

      • Fanurio can be pinned to the taskbar.

      • Fanurio displays an overlay icon on the taskbar button when the timer is running to show its status.

      • The taskbar button's thumbnail has a toolbar that can control the timer.

  • New user manual: The manual has been rewritten to make it easier for both new and existing users to find what they need.

  • Requires Java 1.5 to run: Fanurio no longer works with Java 1.4. This shouldn't be a problem for most people. Only Mac OS X 10.3.9 has Java 1.4. The other platforms (Mac OS X 10.4+, Windows or Linux) have Java 1.5 or later.

    See this section for more details on how to install the latest version of Java on your computer.

  • QuickBooks integration: Fanurio can export time to an .iif file that can be imported by QuickBooks Pro. See this section for more details.

  • Tags for time entries: When you add a new time entry you can also enter one or more tags that have to be separated by commas (eg: tag1,tag2,tag3). See this section for more details.

  • TeX/LaTeX templates: Fanurio recognizes TeX/LaTeX (.tex) files as templates.

  • Configurable folders: Application folders like the database, backups and templates folders can be changed from the application. This could be helpful if you want to store data somewhere else than the default locations.


  • UI Improvements

    • The services and expenses are ordered by date in the New Invoice dialog.

    • Popup menu for text components. Right-click a text component to access actions like Cut, Copy and Paste.

    • The background color for gray table rows (paid invoices, invoiced items, invoiced time entries) is now gray instead of blue to help figure out the status of the entry.

  • Global hotkeys: The list of global hotkeys can now be changed from the Options/Settings dialog.

Bug Fixes

  • Cannot add item categories in Services and Rates from Business » My Business Details.

  • Failed to select dates correctly when using a Wacom pen.

  • The Preferences menu action was no longer available after upgrading to Java 1.6.0_22 (Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 3).

  • The reminders are dismissed if the timer changes its state. Previously, if a reminder was displayed to announce that the timer wasn't started lately and then the timer was started from the tray icon menu, the reminder wasn't dismissed.
