Hi Dan,

i just installed version 8.4.0 and i am sorry to say, that there is still one bug, that is not fixed.
This is not acceptable for me, with this problem i wont buy your calendar. Sorry.

Bug:
Events, that i add in VueMinder to a Google calendar are synced with Google, BUT they never have the reminder, that i selected in VueMinder. An event without reminder is useless for me. Why is the reminder info not synced with Google?
I usually select "0 minutes before" as reminder. Is that maybe the problem and a hint for you?

Hi twinsen2, thank you for the information. I found the problem is caused by a undocumented change that Google has made to the API. The previous method of setting reminders no longer works, even though the API documentation says it should. I've updated VueMinder to set the reminder using a different method, and it seems to be working in my tests.

Please try the version linked below and let me know if it still doesn't work. This version is basically the same as the official 8.4.0, with this one correction for reminders syncing to Google Calendar. Additional improvements are still planned.

The official release of version 8.4.1 is available for download. Please let me know if you find any other problems.

I'm hoping now that the bugs have been fixed, I can start adding some bigger improvements, like Google Task syncing.
