The Horde Team is pleased to announce the final release of the Kronolith
Calendar Application version H3 (2.2).

Kronolith is the Horde calendar application.  It provides web-based calendars
backed by a SQL database or a Kolab server.  Supported features include shared
calendars, remote calendars, meeting management, alarms, recurring events, and
a sophisticated day/week view which handles arbitrary numbers of overlapping

Kronolith version H3 (2.2) is a major upgrade in the 2.x release series,
including these enhancements:
    * Support for the Horde_Alarm system (requires Horde 3.2) for email or
      inline alarms on any event.
    * Improved iCalendar and vCalendar support, including support for
      alarms, timezones, better integration with remote calendars, and
      better support for remote clients.
    * Improved event recurrence, including events that recur a specific
      number of times, recurrence by day of the year and by weekday of the
      year, the choice of editing or deleting a recurring event as either
      the full series or an individual exception, and the ability to remove
      recurrence exceptions.
    * More complete WebDAV support.
    * WCAG 1.0 Priority 2/Section 508 accessibility guidelines compliance.
    * Users can get a daily agenda email.
    * Holidays can be displayed using the Date_Holiday package.
    * Event delegation - users can have permissions to creat events on behalf
      of other users.
    * Events can be marked private.
    * More dynamic user interface, including dynamic page refreshes to update
      the main calendar view when switching between dates or month/day/week/
      work week/year views, a collapsible panel that provides quick access
      to all calendars and allows searching of calendars, a dynamic event
      edit interface that puts less commonly used options out of site by
      default, quick switching between the view, edit, and delete interfaces,
      and autocompletion of attendees from the user's address book.
    * Full Kolab webclient support
    * Database access can be split between read and write databases.
    * More graceful operation if the calendar backend is not available.
    * and much, much more.
