Today we're opening the Spanning Sync v2.0 Public Beta, which not only adds support for syncing Address Book with Gmail contacts (click here to watch a video preview) but also improves the performance and reliability of syncing iCal with Google Calendar.
Much thanks to our private beta testers, who have provided invaluable feedback over the last few weeks.
Important: Before you start, please back up both your Gmail and Address Book contacts. Instructions are in the ReadMe.

Remember, it's a beta, so we expect you to find problems. In fact, we hope you do! Please email all feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today we're also formally launching the Spanning Sync Beta Blog where our beta users can keep up to date with the latest beta releases and join in the public conversation.
Once we've fixed all the bugs discovered during the beta process we'll officially launch v2.0, which like all Spanning Sync upgrades will be free to paid subscribers. Stay tuned to the Beta Blog for more.
