Please add "in Ubuntu" to your statements as you chose to use a
distribution that deliberately ships old versions and doesn't provide
upstream bugfix updates to their users.

Just to get the facts straight who to blame for missing quality.


This was true in the past but not now.  Ubuntu 13.04, which was released
in late April and is based on Gnome 3.6, provides Evolution 3.6.4,
released 6 March 2013.  Six or seven weeks later: pretty up-to-date.  If
you like Ubuntu and must have the 3.8 series you can go with Ubuntu
Gnome and update to Gnome 3.8; same as with openSUSE.  Now that Ubuntu
is a sorta-kinda rolling release, I expect more up-to-date versions of
everything to appear.

Evolution is no longer the default MUA in Ubuntu, but it still
integrates nicely with their version of the Gnome calendar.  Works very
well for me and my extended family.
