This the final release candidate for 1.4. No further changes planned unless
new problems are found.
* SSO: support Ubuntu Online Accounts
When compiling from source on recent Ubuntu it becomes possible to
use Ubuntu Online Accounts for authenticating against Google's
CalDAV and CardDAV servers.
* D-Bus server: fix abort when mixing auto-sync and manual operations (FDO #73562)
When enabling auto-sync for a config and then accessing or syncing the
config manually via the command line tool, the server would abort at
the time when the auto-sync was originally scheduled.
* D-Bus server: accept WBXML with charset in incoming connections
A user reported via email that the Nokia 515 sends
'application/vnd.syncml+wbxml; charset=UTF-8' as type of its messages.
This tripped up the syncevo-http-server, leading to:
[ERROR] syncevo-dbus-server: /org/syncevolution/Server: message type
'application/vnd.syncml+wbxml; charset=UTf-8' not supported for starting a sync
We need to strip the '; charset=UTF-8' suffix also when checking for
* packaging: compatible with EDS up to and including 3.10
The packages now contain three versions of syncecal.so:
- one for EDS < 3.6
- one for EDS >= 3.6 < 3.10
- one for EDS >= 3.10 with the libecal-1.2 soname patched
The third flavor became necessary because EDS 3.10 accidentally
changed the soname. The API and ABI actually is the same.
Package meta-data was fixed to reflect the extended range of
compatible EDS libraries, so syncevolution-evolution can be installed
again with recent EDS.
* packaging: update syncevolution-kde dependencies
kdebase-runtime became kde-runtime in Debian Wheezy. Accept both
as prerequisite of syncevolution-kde to allow installation on
newer distros without pulling in the transitional kdebase-runtime
* packaging: fix rpm (FDO #73347)
After installing the syncevolution.org
rpm on OpenSUSE,
SyncEvolution was not starting because its shared libraries were not
found unless "ldconfig" was called manually. Now the package does
* packaging: fix description
The syncevolution-bundle description of both rpm and deb
packagesaccidentally used the same description as
* test improvements, integration of cppcheck and clang's scan-build
Source, Installation, Further information
Source code bundles for users are available in
and the original source is in the git repositories
i386, lpia and amd64 binaries for Debian-based distributions are
available via the "unstable" syncevolution.org
repository. Add the
following entry to your /apt/source.list:
Then install "syncevolution-evolution", "syncevolution-kde" and/or
These binaries include the "sync-ui" GTK GUI and were compiled for
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy), except for "syncevolution-activesync" which
depends on libraries in Debian Squeeze, for example EDS 3.4.
Older distributions like Debian 4.0 (Etch) can no longer be supported
with precompiled binaries because of missing libraries, but the source
still compiles when not enabling the GUI (the default).
The same binaries are also available as .tar.gz and .rpm archives in
. In contrast
to 0.8.x archives, the 1.x .tar.gz archives have to be unpacked and the
content must be moved to /usr, because several files would not be found
