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 220.127.116.11, 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.
