SyncEvolution 1.2.99.3 released

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.

SyncEvolution 1.2.99.2 released

Next step towards SyncEvolution 1.3. It adds a workaround for Funambol's OneMedia and fixes an old bug which became more severe in 1.2.99.1. 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 :-)

SyncEvolution 1.2.99.1 released

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 and memos.

SyncEvolution 1.2 released

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 command line.

The state of syncing in open source

There have been two blog posts recently who point out that data synchronization using open source tools still doesn't work as well as it should:

As someone who has worked hard on making synchronization suck less I can't let this stand without commenting... in particular not when SyncEvolution is mentioned as not being reliable! ;-)

SyncEvolution 1.1 released

SyncEvolution 1.1

An incremental update, resolving issues where the fixes would have been too intrusive for a 1.0.x release. It replaces 1.0.x as the officially supported stable version.

Compatibility with Nokia phones was improved. Some new features were also included (command line options for manipulating items, backends for MeeGo PIM storages).
