I need my google calendar offline, so is it back to evolution?

Do you actually want to know what the default app will be, or do you just want to know if lightning will be available? Or do you want examples of offline calendar apps? Between your title and body it appears there are three different questions here. – Kris Harper Sep 1 '11 at 1:33
I wanted to know if lightning was going to be available (that was my priority because it wasn't available yet in tb7).As a curiosity I would like to know if it was going to be integrated in datetime indicator. – Tiago Carrondo Sep 2 '11 at 18:26

Google calendar will be available as an offline html5 app by the end of this week.

It will be available for chrome/ium only initially but it wont be long before it will be available through Firefox or Opera

The title of the Question has been changed many times Jo. His question was does he have to go back to Evolution to be able to access his google calendar offline I was providing an alternative which would work should there be any problems with lightning in Thunderbird. IMO relying on one app is dangerous when it is important data you need to access having an alternative is never bad. – Allan Sep 3 '11 at 7:38
