Lightning Update

answers to “ask mike shaver”: Interesting interview with guy behind the upcoming “Lightning” calendaring application (we talked about it here). It seems to be coming along nicely.

We want to have a first “usable” version out this summer, in June or July. We’ve been calling this “0.8” lately, on the reasoning that it will have at least 80% of the feature we’re going to expose in a 1.0, and that we’ll mainly be working on responding to test feedback and polishing the experience at that point.

Sadly, handheld sync capabilities are going to be a ways off.
