When 10.4 was released Apple changed the way iCal worked. This caused problems with iCalMaker not exporting correctly to iCal. When this was fixed code was included so that iCalMaker would not export directly to iCal in Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) (Amazon Link) until everything had been checked.
When 10.5 was released Apple changed the way iCal worked again. And this time it has caused real problems.
There is a fix for iCalMaker the works and I hope to get a beta out soon. However, it is proving to be difficult as iCal works in a very different way now.
Meanwhile, you can still use iCalMaker with iCal if you go via the file route. Export data from iCal as a file, and then import in to iCalMaker, export data from iCalMaker as an iCal file, and then import to iCal.
Work started on an update of iCalMaker back in November. It has proved to be an interesting challenge and things have moved much more slowly than hoped. However, there is now light at the end of the tunnel…
Over the next few weeks there will be a number of posts on this blog charting the progress of the work, so stay ‘tuned’.
If you would like to take part in beta testing of the new iCalMaker then please drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org. I already have a number of beta testers lined up, but as usual, I am looking for a few more. (If you are interested in beta testing please note that the new version of iCalMaker will only work under 10.5 (Amazon Link).
