Fred is a platform-independent time tracking tool. With Fred you can very easily file, view and record efforts (periods of work time), structure them into tasks and projects and exchange them (in multi-user projects) with your project leader.
What's new in Fred
Major new features:
The projects and tasks are now sorted by their name in the project tree and
all comboboxes (issue #88, r679). They're also sorted in the "Subscribe
Added a feature to change the task and the category of a selection of
efforts (issue #94, r679, r680).
The Quickbar display code was rewritten. It now displays correctly on every
screen border on the latest Gnome Desktop (tested on Ubuntu 8.10) and on
Mac OS X. Also the position of the quickbar has changed slightly. It's now

A new launching system has been added. This way running Fred directly from
the commandline via the "java" command is a lot easier. Simply run
"java -jar lib/launcher.jar" or the plattform-specific launcher (available
on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X). This change includes that there is now
only one launch script for Linux (instead of two as in previous versions).
Fred files can now be specified via the command line. Simply pass the Fred
work file a first parameter to Fred (issue #96).
