Calender to stay or length of life?

Hi,

I'm in the process of adding a Mac as the main computer in an all PC 
network. In doing so, I'm migrating from my PC email client that has 
been shelved by it's developers and owners and migrating from Outlook 
2003 as my calender to Thunderbird (email) and Calender. A particular 
draw is (from what I can tell) to be the ability to share data in each 
program across platforms (ie. sync my email on my PC with my Mac, and 
the same with Calender - please tell me if I'm wrong).

What concerns me is how long either Calender or Thunderbird may be 
around because I don't want to do this again when a new OS  comes out 
and the client isn't supported. I see Mozilla putting out Camino, 
Mozilla, SeaMonkey, Netscape... all of these products. I wonmder what's 
the real thing and what's just a project?


Thanks for any insight and help,
Abby

A project *is* the real thing: when some people think something is 
useful and worth maintaining, they use it and maintain it.  So these 
projects have an indefinite lifespan.  Although they can be superseded 
by something better in the future, they cannot simply be terminated.

Firefox and Thunderbird are currently the only two fully supported (by 
Mozilla Corp.) "products". Sunbird (the calendar) is only a "project", 
and is (and has been for a very long time) in very early alpha development.

Google Calendar now supports CalDAV
Google Calendar now supports CalDAV! Great news!? - What are the consequences of this for Mozilla Calendar? Better? How? It seems at least we don't need the "Provider for Google Calendar" add-on anymore!? - Google's CalDAV "Location" includes the user's e-mail address (actually, the "Calendar ID") - including the "@" symbol. Can Mozilla Calendar handle this special symbol? (in my simple tests it does, but there might be other scenarios) - It would be useful to be able to set the "Read Only" check-box while creat...

Oracle Calendar support
I've been doing some digging, and I can't seem to find any explicit statement from either Oracle or the Sunbird/Lightning team on Oracle Calendar support. Can Sunbird/Lightning connect to an Oracle Calendar server? Is there an additional module required for Oracle Calendar? I saw a hint in an earlier post in this group that there might be a CalDAV module for Oracle Calendar, but I can't find any trace of it on Oracle's website. Has anyone gotten this to work? Is there any collaboration between Mozilla and Oracle, as some articles seem to suggest? Thanks,...

For the moment, it does have to be open, though I see from the development schedule that there are plans that alarms would go off, if only firefox/thunderbird are open. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/requirements.html...

length and bytes::length
Currently, under C<length>, perlfunc reads: Note the I<characters>: if the EXPR is in Unicode, you will get the number of characters, not the number of bytes. To get the length of the internal string in bytes, use C<bytes::length(EXPR)>, see L<bytes>. Note that the internal encoding is variable, and the number of bytes usually meaningless. To get the number of bytes that the string would have when encoded as UTF-8, use C<length(Encoding::encode_utf8(EXPR))>. There was some talk to excise the bytes::* functions from the document...
