Topical Agendas for Technical Committees at Roundtable XV

The Topical Agendas for the Technical Committee sessions at the upcoming Roundtable XV have been published and are on the logistics page for CalConnect XV at Topical Agendas. An agenda is also provided for the Shared Calendar Workshop on Wednesday afternoon. The workshop is intended to start addressing how shared, public, and group calendars are being implemented and how to provide for them in the standards, to avoid calendaring clients having to have separate implementations for each provider.  

Revision to iCalendar (rfc2445bis) approved as Proposed Standard by IESG

The IESG has just announced that the revised draft of RFC 2445, Internet Calendaring and Scheduling Core Object Specification (iCalendar) (currently called rfc2445bis) has been approved as a Proposed Standard. CalConnect has for some time been providing input and errata to the IETF CALSIFY working group to support this revision. CalConnect congratulates the CALSIFY working group, Bernard Desruisseaux, the editor of the revision, and everyone who worked to bring this revision to completion and publication.
