Bennu is not dead, just asleep

October 5, 2006

This seems like high time to post a minor update to this page, for the sake of people who have been or will be interested in Bennu.

As anyone can see, the project has been on ice for a year now (after a brief period of activity at startup time). This has not happened because I forgot about it, or got bored with it, or don't need a library such as Bennu anymore.

The reason behind the lapse is simply that I 've been recruited in the armed forces of my home country (much as I don't like it, we do have conscription here) and therefore cannot get any time at all to work on pet projects like Bennu. Even though I 'd very much like to.

I will be discharged from the ranks in early 2007. When that happens, it will be very nice to find out that people are still browsing these pages. And downloading Bennu. Who knows, even using it! I definitely will be! ;-)

Bennu web site launched

July 22, 2005

As you can see, Bennu now has a website (well, sort of). Approximately for the next month there will be no time at all to work on the project (or the website, for that matter), so I hope this will be good enough as a start.

Cheers to you!

Bennu 0.1 released

July 21, 2005

Today I 'm pleased to announce the very first Bennu release! It has been about a month since I started coding, and at this point it's good enough to be usable. Although most features are still missing, the groundwork has been laid and right now it's a matter of filling in the gaps...

What you can do with it right now is to construct a VCALENDAR object, populate it with a bunch of VEVENTs (all properties and parameters for both are supported) and get a nice serialized representation that you can export to a file. One of Bennu's goals is to keep this process dead simple, and I hope it lives up to your expectations.

So what are you waiting for? Download Bennu 0.1 now and take a look at the example code!
