If you are a Merlin user and thinking of upgrading to the new MobileMe calendars, please be aware that…
Why is that?
Merlin uses Apple’s SyncServices API for syncing with iCal. The new MobileMe calendar data is moved to a new calendar service, which supports the CalDAV standard. CalDAV is an industry-standard calendar protocol that works with the latest Apple iOS devices.
This means. You may sync locally your Merlin projects to iCal and sync with other Macs, but your local calendars won’t get synced to your MobileMe calendars accessed over your iOS devices.
In case you do decide to use the new MobileMe calendars, we recommend exporting your project schedules in local iCal calendars and in a second step into your MobileMe calendars.
A similar approach is suggested by Apple when resolving problems with duplicate calendars.
You may consider as an alternative sharing your private calendars to be viewed and edited by MobileMe members to whom you have granted permission.
