I have tried it again with the IT OS2007 Hacker Edition plus the latest
"Dates" and Evolution backend, but the e_cal_get_changes() still fails.

For what it's worth, release 0.6 is now officially available. I'll
continue to compile a binary for IT OS2006 and tested it this time
before flashing the Hacker Edition, but as I'd like to keep that on the
device I won't do any testing with OS2006 in the future.

I have added an entry for Nokia 770/800 to the "Compatibility" web page:

There were a few non-critical issues which I'll address in future
updates: besides the calendar issue (which is a bit out of my hands -
aeh, no pun intented), I found that IT OS2007 no longer contains a Perl
binary. In the post-processing of a sync the "synccompare" Perl script
is used to compare the address book before/after the sync. That part now
fails, but that doesn't affect syncs.
