Release Notes

Version 2.0.3 (5/23/2020)

This minor update ensures the installation date and version are set correctly in case a problem occurred during installation.

Version 2.0.2 (5/1/2020)

This version is a full new release of ChronoBeans. This now includes a FREE version (limited 2-clients, 6-projects) without any expiration. Premium users enjoy unlimited clients and projects, as well as the ability to submit support requests.

The application has been simplified to focus on Client/Project work, while still providing full timer based tracking, manual entry, notes, and automated invoicing.

Client and Project management has been made easier with hide/unhide and the ability to sequence your clients/projects in lists. We’ve eliminated many pesky confirmation messages, tasks, and clunky functions to improve usability. Formatting of the invoices and logs has also been improved.

Version 1.4.1 (03/21/2020)
