note taking simplified

nts is an acronym for Note Taking Simplified. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store notes, a command line interface for viewing notes in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, wx(python)-based GUI for creating and modifying notes as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by path or tag and can be filtered in various ways.

      Release Notes: This release adds the ability to use multiple tag filters. Using the command line interface with "-t tag 1 -t tag 2", for example, would select only items with "tag 1" and "tag 2". In the GUI tag field, using "(tag 1, tag 2)" would have the same effect.

        Release Notes: Key bindings for the display panel were improved. Unmodified edits can now be cancelled with escape. With display selected, edit can be activated with return and delete. For other keys, selection is shifted to the tree and the key event passed to it.
