Is there an ETA on the Solaris ports?

Great to see 0.7 final. We plan to use it for about 100 users with Sun Calendar.

Where is the Solaris contrib? Why isn't solaris just there?? Solaris is at min equal to linux if not better in SO many ways!

Set undocumented option calendar.wcap.subscriptions to true to have calendars you have subscribed to in Comms Express visible in Lightning.
Caution: very slow but should improve in 0.8.

I agree with Thorleif on the 'Why isn't Solaris just there' comment. One thing that perturbs me with Mozilla (OK they aren't Sun, but I am sure a \*lot\* of Sun developers contribute to mozilla based projects) is that there aren't Solaris machines in their automated build and test process. For Solaris to raise it's profile against Linux it needs to be seen as a viable desktop OS. Now give that Open Office provides Solaris builds on day one (OK Sun own this project so I can see why) it might be nice if the other major components of an office suite that OO needs (browser and email) also were released on day one (instead of waiting for Sun Beijing to compile them up)

Kudos to Daniel Boelze for his work on the lightning-wcap component as well! I have been using lightning + lightning-wcap on Solaris x86, Windows XP + Vista, MacOSX and Linus and it all works just nicely. Try that with Lookout.

JM2CW. Keep up the good work!
