dpcalendar 5 1

After the success of the major version 5.0 of DPCalendar, we made DPCalendar 5.1 available to the public as FREE or paid version. To figure out whet is the different between the different packages check out the comparison table. We fixed over 10 bugs and added over 20 new features and enhancements to DPCalendar 5.1. Some of the highlights are:

Location cache improvements

For external events, DPCalendar caches the locations now in the database and not anymore in the Joomla cache. This means, if there is something wrong with a location in an external event like from your Google calendar, then you can edit the location in the DPCalendar location administrator to the correct settings. This reduces also the load of Google maps API calls as with the Joomla cache, where the locations have been be re-fetched every two days.

Various attendee improvements

As there are more and more new feature request for the attending part of DPCalendar, we are constantly improving it. MS Exchange and iCalendar attendees are now displayed in the event details view. To get more information about the attendee itself, native DPCalendar attendees do support new location fields like country or street. When a visitor is attending an event, she/he can fill it's address information to beside the already available fields E-Mail and telephone number.

Improved structured data markup

DPCalendar supports structured data out of the box. We made the generated tags 100% W3C valid and improved the markup for better visualization on the SERP's.

MS Exchange integration improvements

As we already mentioned, MS Exchange attendees are now displayed in the event details page. Additionally inline images and event attachments are now available within DPCalendar as well from your corporate MS Exchange server or Outlook 365 account.

Many small improvements

Some small improvements were made all over DPCalendar you would like. For example when you change the start date of an event, the end data adapts itself to the increment automatically. Or the CalDAV link is displayed beside the iCal link for easier subscription. It is also possible to filter events for tags or locations in the calendar view. This are only some of the enhancements in this new version.
