Maintenance release. Binaries now also get compiled for Debian 8.0
"Jessie". The apt repositories on syncevolution.org (mirrored on
download.01.org) are signed with a different key than before, see "Installation" below.
This release enhances CalDAV/CardDAV and PBAP syncing and fixes some
problems. The enhanced conflict handling introduced 220.127.116.11 was
unintentionally limited to syncs with EDS on the server side; it is
now also available for example in WebDAV<->SyncML bridge setups.
18.104.22.168 is a new development snapshot. It enhances interoperability with CardDAV servers and in particular Google Contacts considerably. Contact data gets converted to and from the format typically used by CardDAV servers, so now anniversary, spouse, manager, assistant and instant message information are exchanged properly.
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).
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 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.
So far the development cycle for SyncEvolution 1.4 mostly focused on implementing the http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.mobile.syncevolution/4009">"PIM Manager" D-Bus API for IVI use cases . The 22.214.171.124 pre-release starts to include more features and bug fixes again for syncing. For example, several ActiveSync improvements from Graham Cobb were included.
After almost three months of public beta testing the next major
version of SyncEvolution is ready for release. The pre-releases did
have the desired effect of flushing out bugs not found by nightly
testing alone. Thanks everyone for packaging, downloading and testing
Final release candidate for SyncEvolution 1.3 - fingers crossed,
knock on wood, etc.
ActiveSync is now available in binaries from syncevolution.org and
becomes the recommended way of synchronizing contacts with Google. EDS
3.5.x and later are supported when compiling from source;
syncevolution.org binaries continue to support only EDS up to 3.4.
Next step towards SyncEvolution 1.3. It adds a workaround for
Funambol's OneMedia and fixes an old bug which became more severe in
126.96.36.199. Also has some usability improvements for
CalDAV/CardDAV. Hopefully it will not take long to stabilize the code,
so test it now while it is still hot :-)
