BusyCal 1.2.3

Send Article to a Friend

BusyMac remains, well, busy, pushing out yet another small bug-fix update to BusyCal, their iCal-replacement calendar program with sharing capabilities. BusyCal 1.2.3 fixes problems unpublishing calendars from Google Calendar and fixes time zone discrepancies when publishing calendars to Google (but note that Google Calendar still doesn't support "floating" time zones, making it unusable for workgroups dispersed across time zones who are trying to coordinate events at a conference where everyone will be in the same time zone, for instance). Several cosmetic bugs have also been squashed, attachments and to-dos are no longer removed from WebDAV calendars by default, and more. Full release notes are available. ($49, free updates, 5.6 MB)

But we are still waiting for the support of ISO week numbers.

Tasks that support start dates as well as due dates and which use contexts and projects [like they are used in Pocket Informant and OmniFocus] would be nice too, especially if they are synced to the extensible Sync Services so that they could be synced with the two applications mentioned above.
