With GNOME 2.28 release, the PST file importer for Evolution would be available for use in all the distros. The libpst version 0.6.41 was finalized to be the stable one and all the distros would be packaging the same version.
Some reviews from the community
+ GNOME release notes. Highlights it as “Evolution has evolved” http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.26/#rnusers.evolution
+ Mentions PST feature as the #1 killer feature http://blogs.computerworld.com/gnome_2_26s_5_best_features
+ http://www.linickx.com/archives/895/evolution-in-gnome-226 Quoting “All I can say is WOW! Linux users will have known that MAPI support into gnome has been on the cards for a while, but .pst access is just brilliant!!”
For openSUSE users, you could have access to it in GNOME 2.26, or run the latest daily builds for Evolution with PST Import support.
A special thanks to the upstream maintainer for libpst, who has reviewed and fixed issues with the ubercool library and to all the packagers. Time to convert all your .pst files and migrate smoothly into the lovely world of Linux 🙂
