Work is progressing on iCalMaker2… one new big change has been to the ‘format’ of the program. This change was made fairly early on, and at the request of the users…
One thing that iCalMaker does quite well is ‘sort-out’ broken iCal files. By broken I mean ones in which entries have been ‘duplicated’ or ‘mixed’ in some way.
However, a number of users commented that once data was imported in to iCalMaker there was no way to save ‘work-in-progress’. Yes, the data could be exported as an iCal file and imported later, but the problem there was iCalMaker would not allow iCal files to be saved IF there was a problem with events ending before they started (long story – but this feature was added to prevent ‘invalid’ events being produced).
To get over the ‘saving’ problem it was decided to make iCalMaker2 a document based application. What that means is iCalMaker2 data can be saved as it is worked on as a document, and multiple iCalMaker2 documents can be open at a time….
All part of some the improvements and changes that are now possible as a result of moving iCalMaker over to objective C v2.0, Xcode 3 and core-data….
