Support Beyond 2015?
« on: December 10, 2013, 07:49:42 PM »
I appreciate the Add-On and I have contributed to show my appreciation. Thank You.

In your post here:

You mention:
The ClientLogin method gContactSync uses has been deprecated for a while (2012) but Google said they would support it until 2015.

Does that mean if Google was to drop support for that ClientLogin Method that gContactsync would stop working?

If that happens are you planning to continue support so as to keep gContactsync working?

I'm going to switch to a different authentication method called OAuth.  It's less convenient for me (and the user) by far, but it should be easy since I already use it for importing contacts.  I'll try to release 0.4.0 before summer then v0.5 will use OAuth before the end of 2014.
