Thanks to everyone who sent us bug reports and suggestions for improvements. Please let us know if you have any problems with the new release.


Windows Smartscreen

If you are on Windows 8 or 10 you may see a Windows Smartscreen warning saying that the executable is "not commonly downloaded". This is likely to be because we have just updated our digital certificate (the old one expired). Click the More info link in this window and then click Run anyway to bypass the SmartScreen warning.

If in doubt, right-click on the downloaded file in Windows Explorer, select Properties and check the digital signature. If it is digitally signed by "Oryx Digital Ltd" then it is from us and safe to install.

Dark mode on macOS

Currently we have light and dark themes for Hyper Plan on Windows (set in the Preferences window). But we don't yet support the new dark theme in macOS 10.14 (Mojave). This is because it isn't yet fully supported by the framework we use to build Hyper Plan (Qt). We hope to add full support in future.


Relative dates tip

If you have a property explicitly set to type 'Date', you can use relative dates as values. For example you can have a 'Date created' property with default value 'today' or '+0'. The property value will then automatically be set to the date of the card's creation.

For more on dates see the documentation.


And finally...

The writer of 'Better Call Saul' is apparently a fan of the 'wall of notes' approach to screenwriting. Must be a lot of work to add a card to Act I!
