makecd.core.de moved

I knew about this upcoming change for a while, but not exactly when it would happen: today a user of MakeCD, the Amiga CD writing software that I developed together with Angela Schmidt during our studies, pointed out to me that makecd.core.de is gone. After many years of very reliable and on top of that, [...]

Get Notifications by Email

Recently I was asked whether there is an announcement mailing list for SyncEvolution. There is none; instead I started to announce new versions or major changes here on this blog. But because not everyone is using blog readers and visiting web pages to check for updates is tedious, I have installed the post notification plugin.

SyncEvolution 0.8 beta 1

Claimed features are contact and task synchronization with Funambol servers (emphasis mine). For anyone who can read between the lines this is a hint that standard formats like vCard/vCalendar/iCalendar are not [...]

SyncEvolution for Nokia 770 – Anyone Using It?

Is there still anyone using SyncEvolution on a Nokia 770 with an ITOS 2007 or older? I used to provide a single package of SyncEvolution for all the Internet Tablets which I compiled with the SDK for ITOS 2006. But when building 0.8 alpha 1 I found the binary no longer worked properly on ITOS [...]
