v1.0.4 - 2011-03-21
    + Added "Check/Uncheck this month only" functionality to the right-click
      context menu.  (Thanks, PhilB66)
    + Added notes field.  (Thanks, PhilB66)
    + Added optional "Year" field when adding a birthday.  Bear in mind that the
      displayed age is what the person WILL BE in the current year (even if
      their birthday hasn't actually arrived for that year).  (Thanks, oblivion)     
    * Double-clicking a birthday will now edit it.

Could a Double-Click on an empty spot be turned into Add birthday, instead of an errormessage? That's a bit more intuitive, IMHO

For the rest it's just steady as a rock Thmbsup

Okay... Completely off-the-wall thought: Babies (not a freaking clue why I went there either)

For the new parent users, can you add something that does (something like) month anniversaries for the newly born? Seems like they measure time in month for the first year or so for the little ones (e.g. how many months is he/she/it...).

So anybody under 2 years old (that seems like the usual cut-off) gets a monthly entry for being X months old.

Do you mean it would add a separate entry in every month for said newborn?

Thanks thumbs up

Yes, which admittedly sounds terribly cluttered ... But new parents (and grandparents) are (ok with) like that. smiley

Oh yeah, but only up to the age of 2.

how about the option to store a start year, so that it's easier to keep track of birthdays where the age matters -- kids' and ones ending in 0 in particular?

How about a vanity option to lop off a year or three for those of us whose advance on senility has turned into a charge?

Do you have a cross-platform version? If not I fear that you have a list to port.

If you were serious, most AHK stuff runs fine in Linux using Wine.

I'm trying to avoid adding more columns since they're such small listviews to begin with.   embarassed

Well, I would rather have another small column and have the 'Notes' window at the bottom of the of the app or not integrated at all (pop up, YaY!). I think 'days left' is very useful for someone (like myself) who likes to do things at the very last minute  smiley.

I'd also vote to keep it simple, and confine the 'days left' feature to only show days until the next birthday(s) ahead (name(s) included), somewhere in the statusbar or toolbar area.

That's a nice idea, Ath. Hope it's doeable.

I'm really not liking the Age column being displayed but I don't mind having that info.  How about I just show the highlighted person's age in another section on the statusbar instead?
