GoogleDocsLink was extended with new features to manage Google Calendar from 
Mathematica. With GDL you can easily 

- search your own calendar as well as as all calendars you have subscribed 
to for text strings, and return all matches. You can search all titles, 
descriptions, meeting locations, etc. with one simple command.
- obtain a date-sorted list of all your calendar events ("Agenda View"), 
from your own and all your subscribed calendars
- create new calendars
- delete calendars
- subscribe to existing calendars (from others)
- unsubscribe from existing calendars
- add new events with Google's Quick Add Event feature (e. g. 
GDLQuickAddEvent["Tennis with John Aug 13 3:15pm-3:30pm"]), which will parse 
the event string using Google's natural language parser and set up a new 
event in your Google Calendar.

The beauty of Google Calendar is that you can import any calendar there is: 
user-defined, weather, sports events, movies, celebrity-birthdays, a 
particular country's holidays, etc. Many corporations, work groups, inner-
departmental divisions have Google calendars that you can subscribe to. 
Google is also known for having extremely high server reliability, resulting 
in extremely high server uptime statistics. Google Calendar is also 
integrated with gmail, which means incoming emails are automatically parsed 
by Google's natural language parser to set up events in your Google Calendar 
based on certain triggers words, such as "meeting" or dates and times.

GoogleDataLink also contains the interactive Symbol Browser and the 
interactive Expression Browser, included at no additional charge.

For more information about the GoogleDocs features and the Google Calendar 
features as well as the two interactive browsers visit the product pages at

At this time GoogleDocsLink is renamed to GoogleDataLink, with "GDL" staying 
the same, to provide for further future additions to GDL from the Google 
Data API.

The upgrade is free for existing users of GoogleDocsLink (now 
GoogleDataLink). Site licenses and volume discounts available upon request.

Requires at least M7 and Java 6.
