An update on PIM storage and sync: SyncEvolution
(now with KDE support, CalDAV/CardDAV synchronization, and ActiveSync) and Evolution Data Server (improved API and performance)
SyncEvolution has been the main synchronization engine in Moblin, MeeGo (together with Buteo) and will also be used in Tizen. In addition there have been stable, regular upstream releases for desktop Linux since 2005. Ports to the N900 and N9 are available, using their native PIM storage. This talk will give an overview of the architecture and introduce the latest features: KDE support, CalDAV/CardDAV synchronization, and ActiveSync.
The slides can be viewed at http://syncevolution.org/blogs/pohly/2012/fosdem-2012
PIM storage and synchronization are important topics on mobile devices because of the central role that the data plays and the intermittent network connectivity - thus the need to keep local copies of important data and synchronize when online.
One (but not the only) supported storage backend is Evolution Data Server. When Nokia left MeeGo, Intel reverted back to EDS as the main storage for PIM data in MeeGo and started to improve it. The initial round of improvements were aimed at minimizing overhead for sync and have been accepted by the upstream project. This talk summarizes these changes and outlines some further ideas.
