Hi,

today I've made new Sunbird trunk builds available for Windows and Linux.

Windows: http://downloads.mozdev.org/sbg/sunbird ... 050505.zip

Linux: http://downloads.mozdev.org/sbg/sunbird ... 505.tar.gz

Please remember that these builds are only test builds! Please backup your profile!

How about the remote/webdav functionality in this build. Is it supposed to work?

When I enter a new remote calendar using the guide (CTRL+L), the calendar updating just hangs. Also, no calendar name is present in the calendar list.

Using the Subsribe to Remote calendards menu function does nothing. I'm using WinXP SP2.

Made a new calandar under calandars, but the name didn't show up, couldn't add anything to it.

I even could not open any calendar because the open dialog did not appear.

tested it. same problem as jetpeach. solution to show the name: restart sunbird. anyway, bugs occur also after restarting:

if i delete my old working profile and let sunbird create a new one, then i create a new local calendar called "test": the calendar file is not created (no test.ics file, no "calendar" folder, no "chrome" folder)... and i think this is the main problem. even if i create an empty folder "chrome" and "Calendar" and i retry to create a new local calendar. no .ics and no chrome file are created.

so if i try to add a new event, the hour/minutes don't appear and its impossible to add an event.

here what happens if i use my old working profile from version 0.2, where i use a remote calendar (NOT automatically updated: i publish on the web manually, and download from the web manually, in a few words i use the remote calendar as backup)

when i open the 0.2 05052005 snapshot, the calendar isn't recognized, and i have to add it again.

if i add a remote calendar "webdav": i get the same problem as stated by jetpeach. i restart, the calendar is automatically loaded from the web (wrong! i want the optino to manually downlaod it when i want): so i click "edit calendar" to check the options: nothing happens (the options dialog isn't opened).

if i try to add a new event, doens't work (i cant see the hours/minutes), and if i close the new event window, i still get the loading icon (the hourglass/sand-glass).

Conclusion of this test: the snapshot published in this thread is unusable. Please release a new one and I'll be happy to test it. Hopefully I could go back to the stable 0.2 version.

Any chance of getting the mozilla.org download path upgraded to reflect this?

The builds one finds following the links there are Januaryish.

Extremely unlikely. The builds announced here are merely unofficial testing builds. They are not nearly stable enough for daily use. Therefore, it wouldn't be appropriate to replace/update the links on the website.

Well there is a nightly builds link there (ftp.mozilla.org), but they are all archaic.

Yes, nightly builds were ceased when the calendar re-write began and the code became too unstable for normal use. Hopefully sometime in the near future they'll begin again. You can search this forum for a post from mostafah giving some guidelines as to what should be done in preparation for their restart.

Hopefully the guidelines will be posted again, maybe a little closer to when the nightlies actually resume.
