Barry version 0.8 (alpha) released

Retrieve and backup information from your USB BlackBerry handheld on Linux!

This version includes a lot of new features, including
new and improved database support. Brian Edginton
has reverse engineered and added support for parsing
email records, pin messages, saved email messages,
improved contact and calendar parsing, folders, memos, and
tasks!

This version also includes the first ever, experimental,
working release of the OpenSync plugin, supporting
calendar and contact items. _Please_ make backups
of both your device and your desktop data before
playing with this.

The plugin is written for OpenSync version 0.22,
and has some limitations, such as no support for
recurring appointments, no support for timezones,
and poor merge support. The good news is that it is
finally possible to sync your Blackberry with applications
such as Evolution.

This version includes Debian binary packages for the
library, command line tools, and the GUI backup. More
binary packages for other systems should appear shortly
over time.

For full details. please see the ChangeLog.

Developers are encouraged to join the project, play with the code,
and report any problems or feature requests to the mailing
list. You can use the command line tool to capture unsupported
database items and help in the reverse engineering process.

Enjoy!
