If you’ve been keeping up with all the new (non-surprise) features of Leopard, you probably have heard about the new iCal Server. It’s an open-source, open-standards server that promises to help users publish, schedule, share, collaborate on events, instead of simply posting and subscribing to events through the iCal client today.
Found from a post on Matt Croydon’s Blog, the good news today comes from Apple’s Calendar Server developer mailing list. Wilfredo SÃ¡nchez Vega posted a message talking about migrating the bugs found internally at Apple to the open source bug tracker. In his post, he gives us a hopeful hint at the progress that is being made:
We think the server’s in pretty solid shape right now. Certainly there are still some bugs that have to be fixed before we can roll up a “1.0” release, but the core functionality is all in place now, and we think it’s fairly useable in its current state.
He says that the Apple Team hopes to “pull together” a preview release soon.
You can find out more about the Calendar Server at MacOS forge, with directions on how to setup the server for testing (most likely for tinkerers and developers). If you’ve been courageous enough to try out the Calendar Server, drop a comment below and let us know about the progress.
