New PIM Available – Chandler

New PIM Available – Chandler

A new version of the Personal Information Manager (PIM) called Chandler has been released to the general public.

Why they named it after a character from “Friends” I don’t know. What I do know is that it looks very pretty.

It looks quite promising, especially as Thunderbird still has no in-built calendaring function. I look forward to the time when Chandler has its own integrated email.

From the Chandler website:

Chandler is an open source Personal Information Management (PIM) client application with innovative design and ambitious plans for sharing, extensibility and cross-platform support. This vision overview or roadmap (Jim McCarthy would call it a “technology plan” or “a Tomorrowland that has credibility”) explains our high-level ideas for achieving these ambitions.

I haven’t had a chance to look at it properly yet but it’s on my list of things to do this weekend.

Anyone else had any experience with it?
