Software Update: Rainlendar 2.6 Build 88 Beta

A new development version of Rainlendar was released this weekend. With this program it is possible to display a calendar on the desktop. Rainlendar is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and is completely customizable to make. For example, the language and appearance can be adjusted, an alarm can be set and a to-do list can be kept up to date. Rainlendar is available in a free Lite version and a paid Pro version. The latter, which costs about ten euros, has the ability to share the calendar and has support for synchronization with Outlook and Google Calendar. Below is what has changed in this release:


  • Added location, categories, priority and url support for the quick add.
  • Dismissing Google calendar’s event from Rainlendar didn’t work. Fixed.
  • RTM authentication got broken in the previous build. It should work now again.
  • Links and keywords didn’t work in the schedule. Fixed.
  • Added possibility to define the width and height of the week days rows & week nums columns in the calendar.
  • Added possibility to show the event text inside the calendar too. The month view in Shadow4 skin shows this.
  • The schedule items can now show the start/end time, location and calendar.
  • The skins can be deleted from the context menu in the advanced skin options.
  • QuickAdd could create tasks to a calendar which didn’t support them. Fixed.
  • Made autoscroll optional in the schedule views.
  • Right mouse button actions didn’t work for the list item buttons (eg in alarm). Fixed.
  • Duplicating a calendar didn’t save its settings. Fixed.
  • If “Support Mozilla alarms” is enabled Rainlendar now also updates the X-MOZ-LASTACK property when the alarm is dismissed.
