Today’s calendaring news from Apple gets even better!
Cyrus Daboo from Apple (yes, he’s the Cyrus of the IMAP server and Mulberry) writes in an email:
FYI today Apple announced full support for CalDAV in both the iCal client and a new open source calendar server for its upcoming OS X 10.5 client and server products. What’s more we support the latest version of the scheduling specification for scheduling support.
iCal is available as a developer preview right now, and of course we will be bringing it to the next [calconnect] interop – on the Apple campus – next month.
The calendar server is being released as open source under an Apache license. This is available here:
Of course we will have this at the interop too.
In addition, of interest to other server developers, is a CalDAV server test suite with over 500 ‘unit’ tests for testing various aspects of a CalDAV server implementation. This too is available as open source on the site linked above.
That link doesn’t bring up anything for me currently, but I’m anxious to take a look at the open source server – it’ll be interesting to see how platform-specific it is or isn’t.
