Yahoo! Inc. announced the release of an all-new Yahoo! Calendar. The new calendar offers an intuitive, online social calendaring experience that enables people to be more productive.
Based on open standards, the new Yahoo! Calendar beta makes it easy for users to discover, share and keep track of events and appointments. Other new easy-to-use features allow consumers to keep track of activities through color-coding, drag and drop appointments for easy scheduling, and â€œzoom-in and -outâ€ from a monthly â€œwall calendarâ€ view to a single event â€“ all from within a Yahoo! Mail account. In addition, images from the Flickr photo community can be included to create a visual, unique-looking online calendar with interesting photos.
The new Yahoo! Calendar is built on the Zimbra platform using the iCalendar (iCal) and CalDAV3 standards. The new calendar is interoperable with other online calendar services including those from Mozilla, Apple, Microsoft, AOL and Google, so users can share their calendar data with friends who use other online calendaring services and subscribe to any iCal-based public calendar.
