Version 0.5.6 22.5 kB Works with Thunderbird 1.5 - 3.0a1

Version 0.5.6
Enhancements:
-sk-SK locale added.
-Updated for Sunbird/Lightning 0.8

Bugfixes:
-An issue where recurring events with no end date for recurrences or set number of recurrences would cause the export to fail leaving an incomplete file was resolved.

Version 0.5.5
Enhancements:
- pt-BR locale added.
- support for Spicebird (www.spicebird.com) added (Note that the options dialog is only available from the addons window in Spicebird)

Bugfixes:
- Import of events improved. New lines in description are now obeyed.

Version 0.5.4

Enhancements:
- Created an option to export as UTF-8 (default) or ANSI. Go to Tools | Options | Advanced | Config Editor and type in vcs. Change the value of extensions.vcssupport.export_as_ANSI to true for ANSI or false for UTF-8 encoding.

Bugfixes:
- Reduced Maximum Compatible Version to 0.7 of Sunbird and Lightning due to recent changes in nightly builds breaking version 0.5.3. A build (0.5.4.1) which is compatible with nightly versions after 04/12/07 is available at http://vcssupport.blogspot.com

Version 0.5.3

Bugfixes:

- Fixed (worked around) a bug where alarms were always imported as "0 days after the event starts". This is due to a bug in Sunbird/Lightning, and the solution may not work for all alarms. Fortunately, Sunbird/Lightning will just ignore any alarms it can't figure out and still import the rest of the file.

Version 0.5.2

Bugfixes:

-Importing recurring events with a specific recurrence end date now works properly.
-Exporting recurring events with a specific recurrence end date now works properly (regression from version 0.4.1)

Enhancements:

- Now export as UTF-8, allowing ideographic characters to be exported properly (previously they exported as ANSI)
- Added it-IT, zh-CN, fi-FI, ja-JP locales
- Made compatible with latest Sunbird builds

Bugfixes:

- Now export all event times and alarm times in UTC timezone and let the calender program take care of how they are displayed (except for all day events, whose proper behaviour is not clear in the vCalendar spec)
- Fixed misspellings in ga-IE locale
- Moved options menu item to the bottom of the menu in Lightning

Version 0.5

Enhancements:

- Incorporated extension into Lightning and Sunbird's calendar import and export dialogs.
- Removed the use of temporary files on calendar import.
- Added a new menu item below "Export Calendar..." for "vcs Support Options". This was necessary since the options dialog could not be incorporated into the existing export dialog.
- Added locales for fr-FR, nl-NL, de-DE, ko-KR, af-ZN, pt-PT and he-IL (thanks to all the translators at Babelzilla for this)

Bugfixes:

- All day events should, hopefully behave a bit better now.
