What a difference a weekend makes, and the difference is proof. (
/me hums along badly)
ectomort formerly of fusionOne says “Apple’s got plenty of SyncML expirence despite the apparent silence”.
In response to Jason’s excellent overview of the calsch world, I want to say, that calling xCal (another name with venerable history) iCalendar version 3, might be over stating the case a bit. TimBL did do an intial XML/RDF profile of iCalendar, which was largely ignored, and rejected. Since then Frank Dawson, now working with the SyncML folks, has been trying to bring XML to a group that is very pre-Web, focused on BNF grammars, email, and custom protocols, not without a little friction. Notice that in the recently published Guide to Internet Calendaring, June 2002 there is one mention of XML, in the same sentence with the words: “non-standard”, and HTTP.
AaronSW: ” Hmph, TimBL and other W3Cers show them how to convert it to RDF/HTTP and they go and make it XML/BEEP.” LOL
