OmniFocus 2! The Debut. Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I just hope that I can import my perspectives in Omnifocus 2 without the need to re-build everything.

No mention of OmniPlan integration?
It looks very nice. Can anyone say if state filter works like on iPad or like on current mac version?
On Mac there is a state filter for the projects and a separate state filters for the actions, so that I can see active projects with inactive actions inside, while this on the iPad it's impossible.
I was not able to attend but I signed up for the beta. When will the people who were not able to make it get to beta test the new software.

Looks great, but I really, really wanted some support for user-configurable metada aside from the Notes field, and there still doesn't seem to be anything. It would have saved me an awful lot of fiddling with my folder hierarchy over the years....

You and apparently 10,000 other people! Ken seemed pretty surprised by that number.

You aren't missing out on anything yet, those in attendance just got a card with a code to register their interest, nothing to play with yet. Rereading the announcement, it is easy to get the impression that we'd be able to download something immediately, but it doesn't actually say that, just that we would get early access to the beta. It appears there is still a substantial amount of development yet to be done (for example, the Review mode wasn't live; we only saw a screenshot of the current proposed design). At this stage it would probably be rather frustrating to use it.
Just checked the screenshots on the blog. Looks very nice, but, please, please, please, tell me that the display's date format will respect the users OS X system preferences! IE: 'January 30, 2013' is just fine in the USA, but most of the rest of the world use '30 January 2013'

Ken has said publicly that OF 2.0 for Mac is primarily "catching up" the Mac version to the look and feel of the iPad, not adding new features not already found in some form on the iOS platforms. Given the response to the announcement and the demo last night, I think they'll want to ship it as soon as they possibly can, not wait around for more feature development to take place. It does look like it should make life easier for new users and experienced users alike, though perhaps not in the same way. The sooner they ship it in some form, the sooner they can resume normal sales volume from that part of the buying public that insists on buying only through the Mac App Store, too.
Wow. 10,000 people. Amazing. Thanks for the heads up!
Here's what some other folks are saying:

Well, it looks like having a standard edition with a lower price will certainly entice some of the Things users who have been on the fence.

Every once in a while, I browse through the Things forums and have seen some of the limitations of Things. I'm sure the switchover will be like a fresh breath of cool air for them.
