Infolog version 2.2 released

Filed under: Egroupware,Java — Raging Goblin @ 17:57

I released Infolog version 2.2. Main change to preceding versions is that changes to title and description are stored whenever they change. Preceding versions stored changes when the focus on a particular sticky note was lost. Furthermore this version contain some bugfixes, e.g. when no notification area is available previous versions would crash.

I spend some time investigating if it is possible to create a more generic client using protocols offered by Egroupware (and other groupware suites). This approach however, proved to be a dead end. Two protocols can be used:

  1. Carddav/Groupdav – Egroupware offers Infolog as a carddav webservice. However, only tasks are offered this way. Most calendar software (e.g. Thunderbird/Lightning) can subscribe to these resulting in no further improvement by using Infolog desktop client over such software. Note that I started the project specifically to gain desktop access to my notes.
  2. Syncml – The only usable implementation I found was Funambols syncml. However, Egroupware does not play nice with Funambol. For insiders: the alert response is completely empty, even if you start a fresh sync. I filed a bug report (#3025) about this.

I realize that it is inconvenient to start a separate service and that configuration of the service is pretty hard, but I see no alternative.
