Nuxeo releases version 2 of it's calendar products for Python and Zope, updating to the latest technology frameworks.


2006-03-17 Nuxeo proudly presents version 2 of it's calendar framework.

The calendar framework is a set of advanced, flexible calendar components for Python and Zope.

CalCore is a calendar component for Python. It allows the Python developer do write advanced calendar applications either using their own event storage or integrating with external calendar servers. Features of the CalCore include among others:

  • Support for making private calendars, shared calendars, resource booking and more,
  • invitation workflow,
  • iCalendar import and export,
  • meeting support, including helper functions to look for free time,
  • recurring event support,
  • etc.

CalZope is the Zope module that provides a web user interface for CalCore. Features include:

  • an internationalized web user interface,
  • integration with iCalendar clients (Apple iCal, Mozilla Sunbird, ...) using the iCalendar and http,
  • an advanced meeting helper that allows you to search for free time amongst the invited users,
  • etc.

The changes between version 1 and version 2 have been mostly in CalZope, where we now have started using more of the techniques available through the tighter integration of Zope 3s component architecture in Zope 2.

  • Local utilities instead of portal tools, providing for an easier installation and greater portability to various non-CMF frameworks, such as Silva and Zope 3.
  • zope.i18n for internationalization providing translations of CalZope without additional tools such as Localizer or PTS. CalZope will in a standard Zope now be automaticaly translated into english, french and more, and you can easily add your own translations.
  • Install script, so you can easily try CalZope out in a pure Zope environment.
  • And of course, various minor bugfixes.

For CPS users, all these modules are a part of the CPSGroupware bundle, together with the CPSMailAccess web mail client.
