I just saw this from GNOME Recent Changes, and I couldn’t find much more details about it. It seems that Jim Nelson from Yorba is working on a new calendar application for GNOME 3. Judging from the previous projects of Yorba (Geary, Shotwell) we should expect something good coming!
Above is the Gnome-Calendar App. It looks great, but it also seems a little bit forgotten..
This is California Calendar. It requires GTK 3.12 (for popovers) and currently isn’t a really working application. It uses EDS (Evolution Data Server) and it is written in Vala.
- Modern, clean interface
- Quick setup (if any is required at all)
- Uses EDS for calendar access, potentially other specialized backends (i.e. GData)
- Desktop notification of events
Copyrights go to Yorba Foundation, but California so far is a personal job of Jim, at least according to Git-logs. First commit made this January, so it is a pretty new application and under heavy development.
Both applications above are built today from upstream against GNOME 3.12
