SyncEvolution 1.0.1 released

SyncEvolution 1.0.1

A bug fix release. The main reason for releasing it is that SyncEvolution 1.0 no longer worked on recent distros (Fedora Core 13, Debian testing) because of a name clash between the Bluez D-Bus utility code and recent glib.

Details:

  • compile fix for FC 13 (and possibly others): use private copy of gdbus (BMC #3556)

SyncEvolution 1.0 released

After several betas and lot of testing, it's finally time to announce the end of the 1.0 development cycle: SyncEvolution 1.0 is released and replaces 0.9.2 as the stable version.

0.1 was released over four years ago. It has always bee part of the long-term vision to bring "personal SyncML" to desktops. Thanks to the Synthesis engine and Intel's support for the project, this goal has been reached and this release really deserves the magic 1.0 label.

For those not familiar with the project, SyncEvolution synchronizes personal information management (PIM) data like contacts, calenders, tasks, and memos using the SyncML information synchronization standard. Up to and including 0.9.2, a third-party SyncML server was required. In 1.0, SyncEvolution itself is able to act as a SyncML server, both via HTTP and Bluetooth (direct sync with phones).

SyncEvolution 1.0 beta 3 released

Type: 

SyncEvolution 1.0 beta 3 is available. This release is feature complete and has been tested thoroughly, so only minor bug fixes are expected before releasing 1.0. Beta 3 is ready for day-to-day use and for getting packaged in staging distros as replacement for 0.9.2 or previous betas. If you find issues, please report them.

Binary packages are provided, including Bluetooth support. Major improvements:

  • automatic, time-driven synchronization in the background
  • command line integrates properly into the daemon concept
  • full support for suspend&resume and message resend when using SyncEvolution as client and server
  • compatible with more phones
  • a tool to determine a working configuration for a phone automatically ("syncevo-phone-config")

Because the release of 1.0 is close, the documentation on syncevolution.org is getting updated to cover it. A Wiki was set up as part of the site to simplify the editing of certain pages, in particular HOWTOs and compatibility reports.

Call for action: test with your phone and report which config works and how well.

SyncEvolution 1.0 alpha 1 released

Today we are releasing SyncEvolution 1.0 alpha 1, a development snapshot, "because we can" :-)

In particular, we can:

  • synchronize directly with a phone over Bluetooth/OBEX
  • accept Bluetooth/OBEX connections in cooperation with obexd 0.19
  • run SyncEvolution as a rudimentary HTTP SyncML server
  • be reasonably sure that it compiles and runs as well as 0.9.x because it passes the same nightly testing without known regressions

Help wanted: maintainers for Maemo and Mac OS X

Type: 

SyncEvolution 0.9 beta 3 is released and I still haven't found the time to try out whether the 0.9 series still compiles on Maemo and Mac OS X. Unless someone with some skills in compiling software on those platforms and the necessary motivation steps up, these platforms might not be supported in the initial 0.9 release.
