Integration of the Evolution Data Server to ThunderbirdFiled under: Thoughts;
It's no secret that Canonical has decided for the next version of Ubuntu, use Thunderbird as a house of installed mail program. Thunderbird solves the often criticized brick from evolution. In order for this transition as easy as possible vonstattengeht, Canonical is working well right along with Mozilla.As a result of this work, the Mozilla Lab now introduced an extensions, can use the Thunderbird address book of the Evolution Data Server.
Evolution and Thunderbird can run in parallel and use the same addresses. In the video seems to work pretty well, but it probably needs its own tests for the current alpha of Onereic, apparently because only there the EDS and Thunderbird are new enough that we work together. In my test, with Natty and installed Thunderbird from the PPA Next Thunderbird 6, the connection has not worked. Still, I find it great to see that work has continued in the direction of data portability. If you have to change slightly from program A to program B can then use the end users, primarily us something.
/ / PS: To prevent discussions: of course can also be used in future versions of Ubuntu evolution. The switch to Thunderbird only affects the default installation. Those who prefer to use evolution as Thunderbird, Evolution of the installed easily via the package manager for Thunderbird and throw from the plate.
