Hi all,

Yesterday I decided to install the unstable debian package
of evolution (2.0.2-3). The primary new feature I wanted=20
was the calendar overlay:

"The new overlay feature enables users to view multiple calendars so =20
 they can see their personal calendars as well as those of coworkers,=20
 work groups and others in a single color-coded view. This allows users
 to see conflicts or possible events without using the free/busy=20
 search."

 From http://www.novell.com/products/desktop/features/evolution.html

The migration went pretty well except for:

* All my contacts were duplicated; I removed the second copy of each=20
  entry by hand.
* There was one small problem migrating a mailbox.

So far I observe that:

* It's slow.
* I move some email to various folders, and there was a type-ahead=20
  feature for selecting the target mailbox in evolution 1.4 that is=20
  not yet in 2.0.
* I miss the shortcut bar (especially for returning quickly to the
inbox).

Whoops...premature send. Continuing the list (and noting that I haven't
looked closely at the documentation on these matters):

This is a big downer and I hope that performance improves very soon.

* There's no "stop" button. I used that when evolution would go off=20
 into the weeds and yesterday I had to kill the process to get it to
 stop churning.

* I tried to use the overlay feature by supplying a URI to a=20
 password-protected ics file. I didn't see any way to furnish a=20
 username/password outside of the URI itself. A workaround might
 involve an ssh forward but I expected it to be easier.

* There's more support for fighting spam, which I haven't tested.
