Activity Timer refurbishment

Good news everyone. We have updated and refurbished the Activity Timer for OS X. Now you can manage your activities with less mouse clicks. We have also added the long wished keyboard shortcut functionality for starting and stopping the timer.

Clear arranged window shows all the activities. Open it with 1 click

The “smart” input allows you to define activity times using values like “1min” or “4h” or even “10:30:30. With this you can define more accurate activity lengths. Give it a try, it still integrates smoothly into the status bar.

Maven missing in OS X Mavericks

mvn: command not found in OS X Mavericks

I have the preview version of Apples OS X Mavericks installed and got an error when trying to run maven:

-bash: mvn: command not found

This was little bit confusing because normally maven is pre-installed in OS X but “the world’s most advanced desktop operating system” comes without maven – at least in this preview version.

But Homebrew is our friend and makes it easy to install it:

brew install maven

and after that I gotĀ Apache Maven 3.0.5 installed and running on my system.
