Plan Life With Ease, Chandler 0.6 Released

Chandler is a free and open personal organizer being developed by the Open Source Applications Foundation, with design by Andy Hertzfeld of the original MacOS GUI team. Eventually it’s meant to integrate email as well as calendaring and to-do items, but for now it’s just the latter — that said, the latest release, 0.6, is finally something in shape that’s usable by civilians. The team working on the product have the following to say

Chandler 0.6 delivers an experimentally usable calendar for individuals and small workgroups. It is a test release for collecting feedback based on real usage. In addition to basic calendaring, advanced features include recurring events; time-zones; overlayed multiple calendars; and managing a single event across calendars. 0.6 offers innovative new capabilities in calendar sharing to support workgroup collaboration. Chandler sharing is server-based, works across platforms and supports multi-author editing. 0.6 continues to improve Chandler’s developer platform framework. A developer looking to extend Chandler should be able to create a simple forms-based parcel.”
