Hello guys, This is an announce mail for the preview of Evolution MAPI provider. This provider can connect to Exchange 2007 servers and also to Exchange 2003, 2000 and 5.5 (untested).
After seeing enormous interest by the users in Exchange 2007 connectivity, we have prepared a preview of the current development code from the branch. The evolution-mapi-provider is a standalone rpm but in future it may be part of the Evolution/EDS rpms. It has a dependency on OpenChange's ( http://openchange.org ) libmapi and Samba4. I'm maintaining the build service project for the provider and I'm planning to give RPMs for OpenSUSE, SLED, Fedora and Ubuntu. We would be doing incremental releases of this periodically and may have nightly builds for this pretty soon (Don't ask me when ;-) The below url should let you access the Samba4, libmapi and Evolution MAPI Provider rpms. http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jjohnny:/evolution-exchange-mapi-provider Due to the recent outage of OpenSUSE Build Service, we aren't able to get the rpms ready. So I have built RPMs for opensuse 10.3/i586 alone and is available at: http://gnomebangalore.org/~sragavan/exchange-mapi/i586/ . The build for the project is already queued. So it is possible that by the time, you read the mail, the rpms might have been published already. So go check out and give your valuable feedback. ****** IMPORTANT - DISCLAIMER ******* * The build could be very unstable and may crash frequently. * Don't report these issues on to Evolution bugzilla atm. We will create the components and let you all know it. Mean while, you can write your comments/bugs at http://www.go-evolution.org/MAPIProvider/Bugs and we will migrate them to bugzilla a little later. * It is not yet feature complete. We don't have public folders/GAL yet. EMail subjects appear corrupted and lots of other known issues :) * Most of the features are untested * You need to export the Samba4 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/samba4/lib * At Last: I'm not responsible for any serious damage caused due to the package. So try it at your own risk!!! :) Thanks Johnny. _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionemail@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
