CalConnect Announces VCARD Technical Committee

A new Technical Committee, VCARD, has been formed to extend the VCARD standards.  VCARD today essentially supports only North American and Western Europe address formats; the goal of the VCARD Technical Committee is to support address formats for the rest of the world, and offer new capabilities and exchange methods.  The committee will also consider security aspects as related to VCARD data and the exchange of VCARDs. 

 

CalConnect Announces TESTER Technical Committee

A new Technical Committee, TC TESTER, has been formed to improve testing tools  for CalDAV and CardDAV.  The TC is building on the CalDAV Tester from the Apple Darwin site, making it less vendor-specific and defining smaller sets of tests to target specific features, provide a quick regression test, or allow exclusion or inclusion of individual tests. New tests can then be developed in parallel with the creation or extension of standards.  A  long term possibility could be to evolve the new tools into a reference client for CalDAV and CardDAV servers.
