Finally, the 0.5 release has been completed.
About two months after our initial scheduled release date, Lightning 0.5 and Sunbird 0.5 bring us a huge step closer to our 1.0 release, which is scheduled for the first half of 2008.
Notable improvements of this release are:
- Much more polished user interface in the calendar views
- Event invitations can be sent and received via iMIP/iTIP (Lightning only)
- Working hours are back
- Automatic migration of data in Sunbird 0.2, iCal.app, and Evolution
- Much improved printing functionality
- Better integration of Lightning into Mozilla Thunderbird (Printing, Undo/redo, Copy/paste)
- Support for Google Calendar (via the Google Calendar Provider extension)
- and much more. A full list of changes that have gone into this release can be found on The Rumbling Edge weblog.
Lightning 0.5 and Sunbird 0.5 are available for Windows, Mac OS X (universal builds) and Linux in 22 different languages including English.
