It is generally felt that Calendar is ready to be included in the default Mozilla builds and work is progressing to make this a reality. You can install the latest version of Calendar (currently Windows and Linux only) from the Calendar project page.


#33 GRE compared to JRE

If you compare GRE to JRE, then two options for distribution of apps apply: * Complete install, including the GRE/JRE, optionally without GRE/JRE (if you are sure you have it) * Install as 'applet' (JRE/.JAR) or as 'extension' (.XPI).

Personnally, I prefer the second, whereby the GRE/JRE function as the 'base' or 'foundation' on which applications are installed. using the .XPI as distribution method, installation is defined by the GRE (and not by the application in combination with the OS). The GRE should provide an environment from which the GRE based applications can be managed (removed, updated, authorisation, etc).
