Google calendar is now in svn!! It will be available as part of Evolution-2.21.1 (GNOME-2.21.1) release. As mentioned earlier the features it supports are,

• Viewing default calendar
• Creating/modifying/deleting the appointments

It also provides a Gdata library which can be used by other applications to access the google calendar and also be extended to mail and addressbook as well.

Ebby is currently working on the following features,

• Recurrence support
• Scheduling meetings
• Viewing Multiple folders

Evolution-2.22 will be providing a complete support for Google calendar. Am also happy to announce Ebby as the Evolution Google Calendar Maintainer!! Ebby has been working previously in evolution fixing critical bugs during his college days and later he involved himself in the Google Summer of code project where he worked on the Google calendar project.


Google calendar in evolution

Hello world !! Am now starting off with a good news 🙂

Ebby had been working on providing a backend for the Google calendar under GNOME/Google summer of code 2007. Amidst lot of hitches in between during the project due to his relocation, he has worked hard to complete it. We are planning to get the work into svn for GNOME-2.22 which means for evolution-2.14. Ebby is now polishing things, for getting the code into svn. According to the recent Soc time-line, code would be hosted between Sep 12 – 14th since code samples are taken through alphabetical order. He explains the work done for Soc here.
