XIMSS has been more frustrating than helpful in my current project due to missing features, and now a bug... Perhaps this is a known issue already, but I'm trying to add a contact, and it seems like CGPro is escaping a comma when it doesn't need to be escaped thus adding a \ to the middle of the full name.

This is bug is not specific to XIMSS, that's the server core that escapes commas incorrectly. hey should be escaped in vCard format, but the core does not remove them as it should while converting data to XML.

This is already fixed for the very next build. If you need that urgently, please write to and let us know the platform (OS/processor)where you will run that.

I'm adding:

<contactAppend id="a1104" folder="mycontacts"><vCard>
<NAME>Worldwide News (AUS)</NAME>
<LOCATION>Australia/New Zealand/Asia</LOCATION>

The actual item that gets added looks like this:

NAME:Worldwide News (AUS)

Note the FN: line.

Ugh. I guess I rewrite the "add contacts" section in IMAP now unless there's an impending bug-fix release coming very soon.
