counting years 6 Years, 11 Months ago  
It would be useful to add feature counting years as configurable item for another events than birthday and anniversary. Or add another events to next version that count years.

I have event for deceased relatives and it would be helpful to know years from their death.

(sorry for my bad english)

Something like this is planned for the coming versions.

On a totally irrelevant note, I have an event for 6th Dec lacking the appropriate 90 number behind it

Rainlendar certainly deserves to be around for the centennial. Happy birthday Eastern neighbours.

Thanks

Back to topic:

I've been thinking about this kind of solution:
- Keywords [days], [weeks], [months] and [years] in the summary or description would be replaced with the number of days/weeks/months/years to or from the event's start date (or due date for the tasks).
- Alternatively you could also define the date e.g. [days=20080101] or [years=1960] if you want to use it in a single event.
- A dynamic counter could be done like this: [days=today]. It would calculate the number of days from today to the event's start date (i.e. the value would change every day).

Anything else?

Off the top of my head, that should cover it very nicely.
