Open Source Groupware Tine 2.0 now with full support for Apple Calendar


The Hamburg-based IT service provider Metaways has released the new version "Koriander" of the Business Edition of Tine 2.0. In the current release, the CalDAV access of the Open Source groupware has been improved even further. Thus, the software now supports all the features of the calendar program supplied with Mac OS X . These include attachments to appointments, the enabling of access to calendars as well as the administration of access rights. Users of the CalDAV client within the Thunderbird add-on Lightning can now suppress duplicate appointments, resulting from the use of shared folders.

Also new at "Koriander": The software allows you to publish files - directly from your file manager. Tine 2.0 generates download URLs, which provide access to the equivalent files without authentication. If necessary, these URLs can be limited in time.

Among the many new calendar functions of Tine 2.0 is a cut-and-paste feature to postpone appointments. If a user adjusts a calendar entry, he is able to suppress the notifications that would normally be sent automatically to all other participants of the event. For a simple e-mail distribution, electronic messages can be conveniently sent from the appointment dialog to individual participants.

The Tine 2.0 Business Edition is the commercial version of the reliable Open Source groupware, its community version is being developed under the name Tine 2.0org. At regular intervals Metaways publishes business versions of the solution. Therefore, the Hamburg full-service IT provider tests and expands respectively the current community software version.
