OEone Scales Back Calendar Development

by MIKE POTTER | Hi all:

It's been a while since the status of this project was updated, so here is the latest.

As many of you will have noticed, there hasn't been a lot of work done on the calendar lately (by myself or Mostafa). The reason for this is that OEone has decided to pause development of its HomeBase DESKTOP product, which was based on Mozilla. We were helping to develop the calendar because it would advance our own calendar in that product. Now that we aren't developing DESKTOP, Mostafa and I have been given other tasks, mostly related to our web version of HomeBase (HomeBase ANYWHERE).

So, the question is where does that leave the Mozilla calendar? That is a question that I can't answer right now. I will continue to maintain the project, and work on it when I can. However, there will not be as much work done on it as there has in the past. We will continue to fix crucial bugs that prevent the calendar from not working, but I think its unreasonable to expect new feature development on it in the short term.

Of course, we are always welcoming bug fixes and new features from other developers, as Eric has done recently. As well, the students in Charleston are working on their projects, and some of that code will be integrated into the main development tree. So, there will be still be progress in the project, however it will not be at a rate that you saw earlier in this year.
