This time though, the
0.2 version bump is pseudo-official, as the experimental branch has finally been merged with the trunk. New features from the revision I just pushed include:
- An “Append” option which, who would’ve expected, appends user-defined text at the end of the countdown.
- An option to select whether the target time is specified in UTC. This was especially problematic as all my sandwiches started taking an extra five hours to heat up in the oven. Initially blaming Pidgin for having some psychic connection with the microwave, it later turned out that the countdown was aiming five hours ahead because, well, that’s the timezone I live in.
Keeping up with the tradition, here’s the obligatory screenshot:
