SyncCGP... speaking of which, there hasn't been a single comment about it since a week, no bug report, nothing.

Either it works so well nobody has to say a word about it, or the is hype gone?

v0.13 seems stable, but I feel it evolved too quickly to be promoted as a stable product. I don't have the resources to put a lot of time testing it or improving the codebase, which is unfortunately pretty lousy (several slightly different cut-n-paste versions of the same code in the original extension).

I think I improved it a bit by cleaning the unneeded XML/Kolab-related code, but I won't be able to really improve the code stability beyond what we have today without support.

I know several admins here are running the extension, but is there someone who pushed the luck as far as installing it on end-user machines?

hi gavin,

mac users..

so far i've used on windows but will try on leopard this weekend..

nicolas has done an excellent job on this, making up for lack of
effort/enthusiasm elsewhere!! ;-)

For Mac, the situation is less clear. While Entourage is included
with Office for Mac, the built-in Apple Mail/Address Book/iCal
combination is also promising. (Thunderbird and Zimbra client may
also be alternatives, although I believe the Zimbra client only works
on Intel Macs.)

I'm mainly interested in actual functionality/reliability in
combination with Communigate, as opposed to cosmetic or interface

Any feedback on the options, pro- or con- would be greatly appreciated.
