Support for Remote Calendar Data in Mozilla Calendar

by MIKE POTTER | The day has finally come... Mozilla Calendar now supports remote calendar data, both via HTTP and FTP. You can export your list of events in .ics format, put them on your website or FTP server, and then allow your friends, family, or whatever to subscribe to your calendar events.

To do this, all you have to do is grab today's build at http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/. Add in a new calendar server, and for the path enter either a local path (you can browse to the local file) or enter a remote path like http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/caldata/CanadaHolidays.ics (right-click on a calendar file, copy link location and then paste that link location into the server will help you out with the remote location).

The data is downloaded to your own machine. You can set a pref to refresh that data everytime you start up, or you can right click on the server and say "Refresh Remote Calendars".
