The OpenSync and KDE teams have joined forces to create a unified library to synchronize data from mobile devices with the data on the desktop. OpenSync, the successor to the MultiSync project, provides a modular desktop-independent synchronization platform. It can be extended by plugins to support additional devices and data types. Plugins for the most commonly used devices and applications such as Kontact, Palm, Windows CE, mobile phones and more are already available or under development. KDE has now adopted OpenSync as the base for its future synchronization tools.
With KDE making use of the desktop-independent OpenSync project, a unified syncing platform becomes a reality.
