It was brought to my attention that syncevolution.org
packages no longer
can be installed in Ubuntu >= Saucy 13.10. That's because the packages
depend on libical0, which was replaced by libical1 and is no longer
I need to check whether the library ABI change is severe enough to break
SyncEvolution and, if it works, need to release updated binaries. The
binaries open the library dynamically, so they can run with a variety of
actual libs as long as the relevant ABI is still the same.
In the meantime, users have to compile from source against the latest
Ubuntu if they want features (like KDE support, recent enhancements) not
enabled by or available in the binary shipped by the distro.
Ubuntu essentially just copies the packaging done by Tino Keitel, who
recently said that he is willing to enable KDE support if he can get
help testing that. See
