    "Not necessary anymore"

    January 25, 2010  |   By giessen

    Pros

    Adds a different option for connection to your Google Calendar: through the XML string. I can't think of a reason why this would be needed, though.

    Cons

    Adds a different option for connection to your Google Calendar: through the XML string. I can't think of a reason why this would be needed, though.

    Summary

    Use the CalDAV protocol when you add your Google Calendar in Lightning.The location you have to enter is https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/youraddress@gmail.com/events (replace 'youraddress' with your actual gmail address). See http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=99358#sunbird foor Google's own explanation (Sunbird works the same as Thunderbird+Lightning).

    Under Cons, I meant to add: why does CNET feature an obsolete extension in its Download Dispatch newsletter of January 2010, over a month after the launch of Thunderbird 3 and Lightning 1 which made it redundant? Puzzles me...

    Updated on Jan 25, 2010

    Just for completeness, as already mentioned by the previous reviewer, Thunderbird 3 + Lightning 1 using CalDAV gives you bi-directional updating -- the same function advertised for this extension.
