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 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 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
