I'm wondering why this simple question has not been answered.  I'm not
usually the type to be demanding or expecting from open source projects,
but in this case, it seems that Evolution 2.24 has been called "final"
FAR too early.  My guess is that there was pressure to get a release out
the door timed with Gnome and the result of that pressure was releasing
something that was plain and simply not ready yet.

I've filed numerous bugs on basic functionality that simply doesn't work
(i.e. GSSAPI, vFolders, mailbox mis-naming) and not a single one of them
has even been triaged yet.  Is the number of bugs that you are
frantically trying to fix for 2.24.1 so large that you cannot even
triage basic functionality bugs such as I have posted?

You folks do realize that this "final" 2.24.0 is going to ship with
Ubuntu's Intrepid release right (unless they decide to pull it at the
last minute -- which without a 2.24.1 I would certainly recommend they
do)?  With such basic functionality problems I can't imagine the
landslide of complaints and unhappiness that you are going to experience
with this release.  There is no way I can see my way clear to letting a
userbase loose on 2.24.0 at this point in time.
