Nuxeo Calendar Server released in version 2

Nuxeo  releases  version  2  of  it's calendar products for Python and
Zope, updating to the latest technology frameworks.

Nuxeo proudly presents version 2 of it's calendar framework.

The  calendar  framework  is  a  set  of  advanced,  flexible calendar
components for Python and Zope.

CalCore  is  a  calendar  component  for  Python. It allows the Python
developer  do  write advanced calendar applications either using their
own  event  storage  or  integrating  with  external calendar servers.
Features of the CalCore include among others:

  * Support  for  making private calendars, shared calendars, resource
    booking and more,
  * invitation workflow,
  * iCalendar import and export,
  * meeting support, including helper functions to look for free time,
  * recurring event support,
  * etc.

CalZope  is  the  Zope  module  that provides a web user interface for
CalCore. Features include:

  * an internationalized web user interface,
  * integration  with  iCalendar clients (Apple iCal, Mozilla Sunbird,
    ...) using the iCalendar and http,
  * an advanced meeting helper that allows you to search for free time
    amongst the invited users,
  * etc.

The  changes  between  version  1  and  version  2 have been mostly in
CalZope,  where  we  now  have  started  using  more of the techniques
available  through  the  tighter  integration  of  Zope  3s  component
architecture in Zope 2.

  * Local  utilities  instead of portal tools, providing for an easier
    installation   and   greater   portability   to   various  non-CMF
    frameworks, such as Silva and Zope 3.
  * zope.i18n   for  internationalization  providing  translations  of
    CalZope without additional tools such as Localizer or PTS. CalZope
    will  in  a  standard  Zope  now  be  automaticaly translated into
    english,  french  and  more,  and  you  can  easily  add  your own
  * Install  script,  so you can easily try CalZope out in a pure Zope
  * And of course, various minor bugfixes.

For CPS users, all these modules are a part of the  CPSGroupware  bundle,
together  with  the  CPSMailAccess webmail client.
