It all depends on what your users are doing. The 1.0 beta 2 in Squeeze
is fine for the original goal of SyncEvolution, syncing with web
servers. But syncing with phones, the new feature in 1.0, definitely has
issues in beta 2. My hope always was that Debian would be able to switch
to the version that we consider as the stable one.
