The new release has been packaged for Debian :

Do you think Radicale 0.8 could be packaged for raspbian also ?

Thanks for your answer.

you could just install it with pip.

Yes, using pip is a good alternative.

But for those who like regular debian packages, a real debian package is better.

It's an arch all package so it should just work on raspbian. Indeed we may well have already pulled it into raspbian jessie.

It would be a very very very good idea.

Is it simple to do it ? When can it be done ?

I'm following it. I'm interested in using radicale to replace google calendar.

I am writing a tutorial to simply install radicale and some user friendly front-end in order to replace Google Calendar.

But radicale 0.8 has some really interesting features that radicale 0.7 does not offer.

And having radicale 0.8 in raspbian repository makes it simple to install using apt-get, which a key to a wide adoption of radicale...

If any administrator of raspbian can read this...

On this page, it is written :
Please feel free to get in touch through the forums if a package you require is missing. We can't guarantee to provide it but we should at least be able to explain why it is not available and may be able to suggest alternatives.
But unfortunately, it appears that no raspbian admin seem to be reading this post, nor answering it...

It is possible to please have an answer about radicale 0.8, which is a really more mature release of radicale than radicale 0.7 !

There is a difference between "missing packages" and "packages that aren't the version you would preffer". The point of a stable release is to provide a stable consistent base that changes as little as possible. Not to provide the latest and greatest. So raspbian wheezy will for the most part* continue to have the same versions of packages it has now.

Raspbian jessie already has radicale 0.8 and has had it for ages.

* There are a handful of packages where debian pulls in new upstream versions to stable releases because they belive it is the only way to reasonablly do security support. I will also likely bring a newer mono version info raspbian wheezy at some point because the version curently there is basically unsusable.

Thank you plugwash for your answer.

Can you explain me what you meant by the following sentence (I'm not good enough in english):
Indeed we may well have already pulled it into raspbian jessie.
And do you mean with your last answer that raspbian is based on wheezy and will always be ?

Or is raspbian based on debian stable (and will then switch to jessie when it will become the next stable) ?

What is your advice if I really want to use radicale 0.8, what is the best way to install radicale 0.8 without breaking the basic raspbian ?

The reason I wanted to see radicale 0.8 added to raspbian repository is that it appears that radicale 0.8 is really more mature than radicale 0.7, which is a good reason to add to raspbian repository. My goal is to get sitcked on raspbian with minimum modifications to it, in order to make home servers with raspberries easier to install for non expert users...

You can already switch to Raspbian Jessie if you want, just change all occurrences of "wheezy" or "stable" in /etc/apt/sources.list (or sources.list.d) to "Jessie", then do an "apt-get dist-upgrade" or "aptitude full-upgrade".

It's called Testing for a reason though, and it might well break.

A better solution might be to try to backport it from Jessie's source.

Debian (and therefore Raspbian) Stable is Stable *precisely* because it doesn't change any more than necessary to fix major bugs.
