Sort options in My Tasks, Gravatar in HTTPS, API now allows creating projects from templates

Three minor features landed on Apollo in the last few weeks: they are not game changers by any means, but they do improve our beloved program.

The first one, is the possibility to order your tasks by project + task name, and by project + task due date in the My Tasks section:

More features: quietly create projects from templates, log time on closed tasks, create private elements by default

To create a task list template simply go open up your project: in the dashboard, you will see the "Templates" menu, which allows you to create task list templates you can reuse across your projects.
