Mark Swanson of ScheduleWorld has announced (giving us the scoop, no less!) that ScheduleWorld now supports automatic synching of GoogleCalendar.
This is pretty big news. He also mentions that everyone needs to update their settings because he no longer stores Google
username/password information, instead he uses the Google authorization API.
He also mentions that you probably want to update your Funambol clients because of bugs that were fixed.

*** MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT ***
Since this blogger was so nice and created a great diagram I’d like to announce here first that Google autosync is available now.
What does this mean? It means you can directly sync Outlook/BlackBerry/Evolution/etc.. directly to/from Google. You do not have to log in to the HTML client and manually click ‘Google Sync’ anymore.
Bonus: Since ScheduleWorld is the proxy for Google autosync your ScheduleWorld calendar/WebDAV/freebusy information is also kept in sync.
Simply go to your preferences page, enable Google autosync on your primary calendar and click ‘Save’.
Note: folks who were syncing with Google with a configured username/password will have to go to the preferences and sign up with the new method which doesn’t use a password. Since I no longer need anyone’s Google password I don’t even want them in the system.
I did have some issues with the Funambol plugin and the Funambol server in general. In the past few days I have released patches that seem to address the issues you mention. As I posted yesterday, I fixed a number of issues wrt Google sync as well. At the moment all problems should be resolved. If not, _please_ email me; I’ll get to it asap.
