SyncEvolution 1.3.99.6 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 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 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.

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.4 released

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.

SyncEvolution 1.3.99.3 released

So far the development cycle for SyncEvolution 1.4 mostly focused on implementing the "PIM Manager" D-Bus API for IVI use cases [1]. The 1.3.99.3 pre-release starts to include more features and bug fixes again for syncing. For example, several ActiveSync improvements from Graham Cobb were included.

The remaining goal for 1.4, besides more testing of course, is to work out how to support Google CalDAV and CardDAV. I am in discussion with Google to get SyncEvolution whitelisted for use with these APIs - fingers crossed...

Minor (or major, if you depend on auto syncing) bug fix release. Automatic syncing only ran once and notifications were not translated.

SyncEvolution 1.3 released

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 them!

SyncEvolution 1.2.99.3 and 1.2.99.4 released, bug tracking at freedesktop.org

Work towards the 1.3 release of SyncEvolution continued with two more snapshots since the last announcement.

The project also moved its bug tracking from bugs.meego.com to bugs.freedesktop.org. Most of the old issues were already migrated, the rest will follow later. Please file new issues there.

The git repos are still at meego.com; they will move to freedesktop.org eventually.

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.
