Here’s a slightly early Christmas present: I have released SyncEvolution 0.7. For those who have already followed the prereleases there haven’t been much changes since -pre2:
- I noticed problems with the background thread which watched the Evolution Data Server and therefore disabled it. This means that SyncEvolution will hang again when EDS dies unexpectedly.
- I fixed an incompatibility of the Funambol C++ client library with the Synthesis server; as it turned out later, this had also been fixed by Funambol on the head revision without updating the release branch. Synchronizing notes with that server now works fine.
As I mentioned before, as part of the work for the iPhone SyncEvolution was first ported to Mac OS X. The 0.7 release on SourceForge now also has a precompiled package for that platform. It should run on PPC and x86, but was only tested on x86. This is considered a proof-of-concept: the packaging is very primitive and unless there is demand I won’t compile future versions for Mac OS X.
