Publisher's Description

Sunbird Project is a redesign of the Mozilla Calendar component. The goal is to produce a cross platform standalone calendar application based on Mozilla's XUL user interface language. The intended user is someone who uses Mozilla Firefox (or another browser) as his browser, Mozilla Thunderbird (or another mail client) as his mail client and wants a calendar application based on Mozilla.

The following features have been added to Sunbird 0.9:

* Events spanning days now have a visual indicator indicating them as connected and not separated events

* When reloading a remote calendar a progress indicator is now shown

* The so-called "minimonth" (small calendar month in the upper left) has been given a visual overhaul

* The calendar views (day, week, multiweek, month) have been given a visual overhaul

* The today pane can now be displayed in calendar mode and task mode as well

* CalDAV support and interoperability with various CalDAV servers has been improved

* The application stability and memory consumption has been greatly improved

its an acquired taste :)

after jumping from one calendar app to another and even trying outlook for a while i've grown to love this... i like keeping my calendar separate from my emails and if i must integrate them for whatever reason there's always lightning and google calendar sync :)

Still a great product. Go out and waste money on a paper calender for the people who hate this.

I agree it's a waste of both time and energy since you can go to the store and buy a calander.
The other problem that I have with the Mozilla project is in their addonn. These addons are most often unsigned which means the developer didn't want his/her name to appear when d/ling. This doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in what you are d/ling which is to bad because there is a lot of addons that I like but won't d/l because they are unsign.

A waste of time considering this can be done easier online.

shicaca: Missing palm sync does not mean the rest of the functionality isn't top notch. You would rate palm dektop 5 stars then right? Damn kids

Sync to palm yet? Still one star.

Do they have a three year old coding this program? I know TV shows use twins b/c of child labor laws. I'm just wondering b/c this thing has been at more or less a standstill compared to other Mozilla projects.

Good software package. Thanks to Wabonline. I couldn't find a link for holidays until you listed it here. As for being out of date like the one user said. Not sure what u downloaded. It came over fine for me. I new it was up to date because it listed the new daylight savings time thats arrives this Sunday. So how is that out of date. I checked future months, all holidays are fine. As for be sluggish. Came up quick for me. And my pc is 4 years old. As an FYI, Lightning is also good. No probs. there either with speed or add on's. I kinda use lightning with Thunderbird more often, but its good to have a stand alone calender program like this also..

Nice free calendar app. On the downside its a bit sluggish and the development of this project is taking ages!

The graphics are nice, but the program is slow and klutzy in comparison to other calendar programs. One must wonder at the slow pace of progress for this project vs. other Mozilla projects.

No filler, all killer from Mozilla.

Fit and finish are coming along nicely.
Do not bother downloading the holiday calendars.
They are WAY out of date, the Chinese is 2004 and the US is equally old.

Perhaps they should update them once a year, just for fun, if they are going to be offered.

Great calendar. I've using it for ages. If you need holiday calendars to import you can find them here

Pretty Good. Call me picky, but i wish they had things like holidays and daylight sayings time listed like the calenders you buy in a store.

As I don't have any Microft Office installed on my Office PC and only use Open Office Sunbird was a Godsend as Outlook Express does not come with a calender !..I use an online calender and was able to easily import my online calender files into Sunbird. I was unable to import them with Personal PIM ?? Does anyone know whether there is a way yet to import only what isn't on the calender..because everytime I do an import..its double entries for everthing !! I had to delete everything and re-import again.Looking towards new feautres as they become available...so far so good (almost)
