Evolution Two Ten Planning

I am seeding the page with some initial thoughts and moving stuff from the Future Release Planning page. As always, your comments and contributions are welcome. -- Harish

Focus Areas

gnome targetting large deployments

gnome targetting users

gnome targetting platforms, developers, and translators

erase the favourite user questions

  • add a working and well-tested backup and restore functionality (done in 2.11 ?)
  • 213072 - "Summary and folder mismatch" error

  • make evolution realize that it crashes on a particular email and automatically set /apps/evolution/mail/display/show_preview to 0 when getting restarted
  • set up a wiki FAQ page (the FAQ ?)

Thanks Andre, for bringing out these points -- Harish

GroupWise Mailer

1) Check if it will be possible to subscribe to GW Events and see if we can avoid the read-cursor calls
2) Reduce the memory consumed by the UID comparison code (in IMAP as well as GW)
3) Support for removing obsolete proxies from proxy-login-dialog
4) Retaining colors for GW calendars/tasks/notes. The code will go in a plugin. So I am listing this under GroupWise mailer.


1) Fixing all the eds crashers
2) Optimizing string manipulation in vcard parsing
3) Optimizing auto completion
4) Resolving ldap and gal addressbook issues.


  • Improve stability - fix all the crashers which has high user impact

  • Fix all the major bugs which break the functionality

  • Call libecal APIs in separate EThread to prevent evolution being unresponsive

  • Fix the issues related to printing

  • Fix the major bugs which occur in specific locales

  • Fix the g_critical warning crashers

  • <span style='text-decoration: line-through;'>Support for non-US based weather calendars Gnome Bugzilla equivalent</span> already filled in gnome targetting users
