After playing a bit I think there is a bit more to this than "hide until N days before due date". The difference shows up in search. You could just have a "show hidden", but I think users would really want something that works off the search items like ^week and ^month. Personally I would like ^week to show everything that starts in the next week vs due in the next week.
In fact I am thinking maybe I need to switch to using actually using due as my start and then typing the actual due date just as text. That is more work, but it gives me the filtering around start and priority I think I need.
With some of your recent additions, this actually seems to be the last big hurdle for me. I need start dates to support proper filtering of what I don't need to worry about yet. Its particularly important for recurring items.
To add more context to the descriptions below, "Start Date" is a pretty standard task management concept. It usually combined with a "days before" field and start, due, and days before are all computed relative to each other (if you update one its updates the others).
You can find good examples in lots of task management software - Outlook, OmniFocus, Ecco Pro, MyLifeOrganized, InfoQube, Toodledo, etc...
Good one, will be implemented eventually.
Quick addition to my comment, it would obviously be nice if the view options were added to the URL fragment also.
What I would really like is saved filters. As Joseph pointed out we have a workaround for searches now because you can save the URL, but that doesn't work for filters. You could support it pretty easily though by updating the URL fragment each time a filter is run or cleared. Many other sites do this (since the URL fragment can be updated dynamically without triggering a page load). For example, if I search for "tag: tag2" and hit enter the URL would change to "https://checkvist.com/checklists/29377#?f=ag%3Atag2".
This is a good idea, we think about it ourselves.
A related feature (at least in my mind) would be the ability to wrap the outline list to the right so you can see more of the outline in a single wide window. See http://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-general/suggestions/4389228-wrap-outline-for-wide-windows

Ecco's column is a folder was very cool way of doing things.
