Hello Guilers,

I'm pleased to announce Guile-ICS 0.4.0:

This release adds basic support for vCard format and improves the "ics"
console tool that now allows to convert DSV data to iCalendar/vCard

See the full list of user-visible changes below.

* What is Guile-ICS?

Guile-ICS is an iCalendar format RFC5545 [1] and vCard (RFC6350) [2] parser
for GNU Guile.

Here's an excerpt from the NEWS file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Changes in version 0.4.0 (2022-10-31)
** =ics= program is improved
*** =print=: New command
iCalendar/vCard printer that prints the data in the specified format ("pretty"
and "org-mode" are available for now.)
*** =describe=: New command
This command allows to get human-readable description of iCalendar/vCard data.
*** =convert=: New command.
=ics convert= allows to convert DSV data to iCalendar/vCard format.

As a practical example, this is very useful for producing vCard contact data
from table data (e.g. from ODS files) for mass-importing contacts into a
** Guile-ICS now can read vCard format
As vCard (RFC 6350) format is very similar to iCalendar (RFC 5545), it seems
reasonable to support both in one library/tool.

There are unfinished parts in vCard support but that will be fixed in future
Guile-ICS releases.
** =(ics)=: =ics-describe= is now more informative
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Thanks and happy hacking!

- Artyom
