NewsFiretask 4.6: Improved Inline Editing, New Kanban View Types & Much More

IMPORTANT: We made inline editing even more intuitive on the Mac. ENTER now either concludes editing, or inserts a new task depending on whether you are currently editing a task title. In order to start editing an existing selected task you use ⌘ENTER. Please note that this also means that we had to adjust the keyboard shortcuts for quickly adding notes, actions, or a due date: we suggest that you take a quick look at the changes in the "Tasks" menu :-).
