Important: Old calendar and contacts App now deprecated / info for reporting issues

Hi,

for the upcoming release of oC 9.0 the CalDAV and CardDAV backends where merged into ownCloud core like described here:

viewtopic.php?f=38&t=32735

As a result the old apps from oC 8.2 and previous are now "deprecated" and "unmaintained" (The contacts app was even unmaintained before).

If you find an issue in one of those apps you can try to report it to:

https://github.com/owncloudarchive/calendar/issues
https://github.com/owncloudarchive/contacts/issues

However you should note that there will be very likely no fix provided for any of the existing or new issues.

Hi,

we are using Owncloud in a small scientific group and are also using calendar and contact apps for a while. Since the update to 9.0, we cannot synchronize our calendars anymore with Lightning(Thunderbird).

Synchronization was done via the calDav-Links provided by the calendar app (Owncloud 6-8.2).

We are using either the latest stable releases of Thunderbird and Lightning (38.6.0 and 4.0.6) or the latest beta-builds (45.0.0 and 4.7b1)

I tested it with the Windows10 Calendar app and it is possible to import all caldav calendars at once using an iCloud-fake account.

First thing what is a bit strange is, that with 9.0, you can only get a primary caldav link and no individual caldav link for all calendars in owncloud. Is that correct?

Second strange thing: One technician got one individual calendar shared (not via group). This is the only one which is still working.

Thanks in advance for any ideas and hints.

Karsten

Locked as this thread is not the place to discuss this (This thread is about the old apps, not the rewritten apps).

If your missing features in the rewritten apps report them to the issue tracker of these apps.
