Released: Plone4ArtistsCalendar 2.0a2
Just before the Plone Conference, to make it easier to test, I released Plone4ArtistsCalendar 2.0a2 (including Dateable 0.4.0). That it is an alpha should not deter you from using it, several sites are, and it’s actually quite stable. It is an alpha, because it misses some basic features. Most importantly there is no migration from Plone4ArtistsCalendar 1.1 yet. Secondly, the ical support is flakey, and doesn’t support recurring events. The recurring event support is very basic, still, the user interface for setting to and from dates and recurring rules needs a complete overhaul, and we need to make a calendar portlet that support recurring events as well. If you feel like doing any of this, please tell us, because we deserately need more people helping out on the calendaring project!
That said, 2.0a2 has a very pretty user interface, which has had many improvements since 2.0a1, mostly thanks to claytron and lucielejard. Thanks!!
Installing it for testing is easy:
- Take (or make) a Plone buildout (3.0 or 3.1).
- Add p4a.plonecalendar to the list of eggs and the zcml = statement and (re)run buildout.
- Start Plone, and install Plone4ArtistsCalendar in the quickinstaller.
Done! All your events now have recurrence support, and you can enable the Calendar subtype on a folder to get calendar views. Please test, and add bugs to the new Cluemapper tracker. Have fun!
