Avatars for Google Contacts in Evolution

Following on from group/category support, I've just merged support for setting and retrieving avatars/photos on Google Contacts from Evolution. There are still a few rough edges, but hopefully I'll get time to tidy those up before GNOME 3.2.

“I'm going to Desktop Summit 2011 in Berlin” bannerI'll be arriving on the 5th, spending a day hurriedly seeing absolutely everything there is to see in Berlin, then diving into the conference on Saturday. I'm leaving on the 12th.

For anybody interested in contacts, meta-contacts, individuals, personas and inventing words to make your software sound more impressive, there's a folks BoF happening at some point on Wednesday (not Thursday as the schedule says, since Travis has to leave beforehand). More details will follow, hopefully, in the libfolks talk on Saturday, 11:20–11:50 in Room 2002.

Group/Category support for Google Contacts in Evolution

My work to add support for groups/categories to Evolution's Google Contacts address book backend has just landed, thanks to Milan Crha for reviewing it all. It should be available in GNOME 3.0, so people can categorise their contacts to their hearts' content!

I'm now working on making the backend properly asynchronous and cancellable, and also looking into adding support for contact photos.
