      GNOME Calendar can now open up ICS files - such wow in 2021
      GNOME Disk Utility now uses LUKS2 for new encrypted partitions - such wow 3,5 years later

        GNOME Calls seems like a good step. Most of the current SIP clients are basically unusable, on most platforms. I end up using the BareSIP CLI. Having LTE/GSM calls (oFono) and SIP calls through the same interface would be an upgrade over both iOS and Android, on GNOME-based phones.

          I think this is mostly courtesy of purism. Good move tough.

            Well it kind of seems to me like Gnome is trying to split up Evolution, but it's slow going. Geary for email, Calendar for... well Calendar.

            But Evolution is still the only free email client that has the equivalent to Outlook features and will work with Exchange / Office365 (unless Kmail finally made that improvement, but I doubt it, email clients are not 'glorious'. Hell even Microsoft can't be bothered to not make Outlook the worse software I've ever used.)

              Kmail's Akonadi EWS module has been around for ages - it has a handful of bugs, but its definitely usable

                Calls uses ModemManager instead of oFono but otherwise yes, over the same interface.

                  I hoped that the adwaita redesign would make it in gnome 41. Hopefully it will be included in version 42.

                  edit: grammar

                    Geary is unusable for me. I need an email center to have fully featured, fully supported PGP implementation front and centre.
