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
188.8.131.52. 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 :-)
First pre-release of SyncEvolution 1.3. Contains bug fixes that were
not backported to 1.2.x, so upgrading is recommended. For example,
SyncEvolution 1.3 is required for Evolution 3.4, otherwise photos are
not exported properly. Further workarounds for recent changes in
Google CalDAV were added.
Major new features are KDE/Akonadi support in the syncevolution.org
binaries and ActiveSync support (only in the source code). The D-Bus
server and local sync were rewritten considerably, to make the code
cleaner and more robust. The CalDAV backend now also supports tasks
The major new feature of the 1.2 release is support for non-SyncML
protocols in general and CalDAV/CardDAV in particular. ActiveSync
support is in development and will be in 1.3. These protocols are
implemented as backends which are combined with other backends by
SyncEvolution in a so called "local sync". The GTK sync-ui does not
yet support configuring non-SyncML protocols. See the README.rst and
man page for more information on how to use the new feature via the
SyncEvolution 184.108.40.206, the release candidate for 1.1, is available for testing. Company supported development shifts towards other areas like local synchronization and non-SyncML protocols, so now would be a good time for contributors to step in and help improve the SyncML part or work on non-SyncML protocols.
