ANNOUNCE: gnome-pim 1.1.5 is released

A new developer's release of the GNOME Personal Information Manager 
(gnome-pim 1.1.5) is now available at:

This version requires gnome-pilot 0.1.50 for Palm Pilot support...

The highlight of this release is a fix to the vCalendar parser which 
should enable one to set, save, and load multiple categories for each 
to-do item.  I'd greatly appreciate it if people could test this 
feature and let me know of any problems.

Please note, however, that there is no guarantee that the parsing 
change has not screwed up other things.  I've tested it and seen no 
problems on my system, but if you have any important information in 
your calendar, it is probably a good idea to back it up before 
upgrading to gnome-pim 1.1.5.  (The same goes for your gnomecard 
address book.)

Also, just to forestall additional bug reports, I have discovered a 
problem which was causing gnomecal to crash with a SIGFPE (Floating 
Point Exception) on startup.  It is related to the daylight savings 
time switchover, and only occurs on the calendar day which contains 
the switchover in your local timezone.  Unfortunately, for most of 
the United States, that was yesterday.  Thank you to those who sent 
in bug reports, and you have my apologies for the inconvenience--- by 
this point, the problem should have gone into hibernation for another 
few months, and I am close to a fix which will prevent it from 
occurring in the future.

Finally, 1.1.5 is likely to be turned into 1.2 in the near future, so 
now would be a great time for translators to update their 
translations in preparation for the stable release.  Thanks in 

As always, if you discover any bugs, please report them to
