GanttPV is a project scheduling software.

Create project schedules. Plan task assignments. Create follow up lists. Display gantt charts. Manage work loads.

Define project tasks, task durations, dependencies, start dates, holidays, and normal work hours. Calculate task end dates and float. Reuse template projects. Define parent and child tasks. Mix daily, weekly, and monthly time scales in the same report. Color code resources.

Monitor the team's productivity, schedule performance, and out-of-pocket expenses.

Plan multiple projects. Share resources. Prioritize follow up items across projects.

Print attractive reports. Export web pages. Define keyboard short cuts. Write scripts in Python. Create task network diagrams. Share data via GanttPV Server.

GTK+ version 2.0.x
wxPython (the developers use, but earlier versions will work.)

What's New in This Release:
New features:
Clearer, more attractive time-scale headings.
Supports the new, multi-user GanttPV Server.
Support for translating menus into other languages.
Improved task parenting supports dependencies between parent tasks.
Resource assignment reports are now built-in. (Older files can still be
upgraded with the "Install Assignment Hours" script.)
Resource groups that can be assigned to a task as easily as individual
"Assign Resources" button can now be used on a resource row to assign it to multiple tasks at once.
Rows can now be moved in the main window.
Shortcut key for inserting a new row: Command-R (Control-R on Windows).
Adds default columns to several report types. (These columns are now
included in every new report.)

New scripts:
"Save Report Layouts" captures report and column layouts as a script to share with coworkers.
"Import MS Project XML File" reads a Microsoft Project file (XML format only) into GanttPV.
"Move Task Start Dates" adjusts the start dates of the selected tasks forward or backward by the desired number of days, weeks, months, or years.
"Install Assignment Role" specify the role of each resource assigned to a task. For example, these resources were assigned to writing this file: Alex (typing monkey) and Brian (sagacious sage). Meanwhile, these were assigned to designing GanttPV: Alex (berserk axe-warrior) and Brian (warden of the cobwebs).
"Assign Random Colors to Resources" (in "Bar Colors") instantly assigns an ugly combination of attractive colors to your resources. (Can you say that to a commitee with a straight face?)

Improved scripts:
"Install Task Hour" the task starting hour is now editable (requires v0.7).

Bug fixes:
Fixed bug that sometimes prevented holidays from displaying correctly.
Fixed bug that created extra dependencies between the same tasks.
