Changes to Evolution Exchange between 2.0.x and 2.2.0
        * Many major features added

                * Display folder sizes. You can now get the size of each folder

                  into online mode.
                * Integrating ximian-connector-setup with account setup. You
                  can now create your exchange account by giving the OWA url
                  from the Edit->Preferences dialog, same as it was in
                * Support for calendar attachments. You can now attach your

                  can also attach documents to your appointments.
                * Calendar tracking options. You can set options on your
                  meeting requests to get notifications when the meeting
                  request has been delivered or read.
                * 64 bit support. Evolution Exchange can now also be used on a
                  64 bit machine.
