SyncEvolution 1.4 released

The 1.4 release of SyncEvolution replaces 1.3.2 as the stable, supported release.

1.4 is the first stable version with the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) PIM Manager included. GENIVI Diagnostic Log and Trace (DLT) is also supported. For more information about this aspect of SyncEvolution, see the PBAP and PIM entries in the 1.3.99 release notes and these Automotive Linux Summit slides.

The biggest change for normal Linux users is Google CalDAV/CardDAV authentication with OAuth2. These are the open protocol that Google currently supports and thus the recommended way of syncing with Google, replacing ActiveSync and SyncML (both no longer available to all Google customers).Read more

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.7 released

This the final release candidate for 1.4. No further changes planned unless new problems are found.Read more

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.6 released

This update focuses on SyncEvolution in IVI again. It adds support for GENIVI Diagnostic Log and Trace (DLT) and enhances searching in the unified address book.

The biggest change for normal Linux desktop users is enhanced support for recent distros. Binaries on syncevolution.org now work with EDS >= 3.6 and < 3.6. Distros with libical1 like Ubuntu Saucy are also supported. Automated testing was updated to cover these newer platforms more thoroughly.

The binaries support Google CalDAV in combination with GNOME Online Accounts (GOA) >= 3.8 and and Google CardDAV with GOA >= 3.10. To use CardDAV with GOA 3.8, one has to patch or recompile GOA.

Support for Google CalDAV/CardDAV with Ubuntu Online Accounts requires recompilation of SyncEvolution with one additional patch.Read more

PIM - it's all about the contacts

I just presented the work done on PIM in Tizen IVI 3.0 at the Linux Foundation's Automotive Linux Summit.

The work is based on a considerably enhanced Evolution Data Server, libphonenumber, folks,Read more

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.5 released

SyncEvolution now supports Google CalDAV/CardDAV with OAuth2 authentication. These are the open protocol that Google currently supports and thus the recommended way of syncing with Google, replacing ActiveSync and SyncML (both no longer available to all Google customers).Read more

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.4 released

The focus of this development snapshot is enhanced performance of syncing. With EDS, contacts get added, updated or loaded with batch operations, which led to 4x runtime improvements when importing PBAP address book for the first time. Removing unnecessary work from any following PBAP sync resulted in a 6x improvement.Read more

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.3 released

So far the development cycle for SyncEvolution 1.4 mostly focused on implementing the "PIM Manager" D-Bus API for IVI use cases [1]. The 1.3.99.3 pre-release starts to include more features and bug fixes again for syncing. For example, several ActiveSync improvements from Graham Cobb were included.

The remaining goal for 1.4, besides more testing of course, is to work out how to support Google CalDAV and CardDAV. I am in discussion with Google to get SyncEvolution whitelisted for use with these APIs - fingers crossed...Read more

SyncEvolution 1.3.2 released

Minor (or major, if you depend on auto syncing) bug fix release. Automatic syncing only ran once and notifications were not translated.Read more
