I recently made the new icalendar library for Ruby which I've been working on for the past six months available on github http://github.com/rubyredrick/ri_cal/tree/master I plan to also put this on rubyforge (the project has been created already), but I want it to get a little more grilling from users before really pushing it out into the world, and I figure that github users might be a little more willing and understanding to work with slightly less mature code. This is a completely new library, it's based on neither the icalendar nor vpim gems, which both do a very good job of parsing icalendar data, but don't try to do things like understanding icalendar time zones and recurring events. In ri_cal, I took those tasks as the main goals. I've made some low-key announcements about ri_cal on my blog: http://talklikeaduck.denhaven2.com/tag/rical It's gotten some interest, there are currently 79 folks watching it on github. But I'd like some more bug reports! There is a google group for discussion at http://groups.google.com/group/rical_gem anyone is welcome to join. I've set it up so that initial postings are moderated to avoid it becoming a spam trap. There is also a lighthouse project for bug tickets: http://rick_denatale.lighthouseapp.com/projects/30... -- Rick DeNatale Blog: http://talklikeaduck.denhaven2.com/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/RickDeNatale WWR: http://www.workingwithrails.com/person/9021-rick-denatale LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/rickdenatale

It does need an implementation of tzinfo, but is happy to use either the tzinfo gem or the implementation in ActiveSupport, the application is free to satisfy the requirement by requiring one or the other before requiring ri_cal. -- Rick DeNatale Blog: http://talklikeaduck.denhaven2.com/ Twitter: http://twitter.com/RickDeNatale WWR: http://www.workingwithrails.com/person/9021-rick-denatale LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/rickdenatale

This is awesome! I was looking for a clean iCal implementation for Ruby, great minds think alike. I'll be playing with this over the weekend, building a simple rails app to test out its features. I might try to write some code to synchronize local and external (google) calendars, we'll see how that goes.. either way, thanks for the great release. keep em coming.
