OpenTodoList 3.38 Has Been Released

Oct 15, 2021

We're in October, and besides 👻 Halloween 👻 you're probably waiting for an update of OpenTodoList, don't ya? Now, here it comes!


  • rpdev/opentodolist#470: OpenTodoList recently got the ability to move and copy items around. To make this more convenient, we introduced (alphabetical) ordering of items when selecting a target parent item for such an operation.

  • rpdev/opentodolist#478: This is a quite technical issue, but still... up to now, we used a quite dated signing scheme for the Android deliveries. This is a thing if the past now - although ideally, most of you never will notice a difference 😉

  • rpdev/opentodolist#479: On macOS, the application menu was not properly translated. Although there is in general not much to see (the app doesn't currently use that menu...) this still makes it more consistent of you're on a non-English system.

  • rpdev/opentodolist#465: Talking about translations... there was a bug that caused the app to not properly take up the system language, so you instead had to manually switch the language in the settings. The bug showed up at least on iOS and macOS, but probably also could manifest on other systems. No matter, fixed with this release ✅

  • rpdev/opentodolist#471: This is an important one... OpenTodoList currently uses WebDAV for its built-in synchronization. The good thing is: WebDAV is a standard protocol with lots of servers implementing it (e.g. many email providers make online storage available via that protocol). The bad thing is... a lot of these implementations are not fully standards compliant. This caused issues with the sync. In this release, we beefed up the handling of such faulty servers, making the sync more robust. It might still not work in 100% of all cases, but the app should be usable now with many more servers out there. Please note, that if you already have added one or more accounts in your app, you have to either re-add them or edit them - pressing that OK button in the account settings will trigger a test against the server, which is required to detect faulty behavior and activate the necessary local workarounds in the app.
