Known issues
Syncing with Google Calendar results in duplicate entries. This behaviour is a result of the Google Calendar implementation: Google Calendar changes the IDs of the created events. Because of this, BirthdayReminder does not find the previously created event for the birthday and creates a new event. There will be no changes in Birthday Reminder because of this. Please report this problem to the Google Calendar Team if you would like to have it fixed.
Birthday Reminder seems to hang when syncing a calender hosted in a WebDAV-Folder via https on gmx.de
