New release: Version 8.1
We’re happy to announce the release of our latest version 8.1
There are a number of improvements and changes in this release, here the main ones…

First of all, you’ll notice our new menu and top navigation. It’s more compact and just slicker:
All personal settings are moved under the User’s name. Account administrator will also find all system settings there as well, while these items will be hidden from the users who don’t have permissions to see them.
You’ll also notice that most of the design elements (text, fields, buttons) are bigger now. Our goal was to make the new interface easier on the eyes.
The quick panel was also moved from the left side to the top:
Now you’ll be able to see the parent task on the “My Assignments” page:
