       Ever  since  the  upgrade Evolution from 1.4 to 2.x, this product includes source code for
       the Berkeley Database a product of Oracle Corporation.  Your use of the Berkeley  Database
       software  separately  from Evolution or authorized derivatives thereof is subject to addi-
       tional licensing conditions.

       Per-user configuration files and local storage in Evolution 2.x are stored in  $HOME/.evo-
       lution directory as opposed to $HOME/evolution directory in Evolution 1.4. If the user had
       Evolution 1.4 installed on the system before, they are able to upgrade  to  Evolution  2.8
       without	losing	configuration  and local data. When run for the first time, Evolution 2.x
       will automatically check for and import all the old configuration and local data owned  by
       Evolution  1.4,	and  convert them to the format readable by Evolution 2.x. Users are also
       allowed to choose between preserving the $HOME/evolution directory or not. If users choose
       to  preserve configuration and local data for Evolution 1.4, they will have to manage Evo-
       lution 1.4 and Evolution 2.8 configuration and data separately, after the one-time  migra-
       tion.  No  automatic  syncing is available for ensuring that changes made to Evolution 2.x
       are ported to Evolution 1.4, or vice versa.

       The addressbook database formats of Evolution 2.x and Evolution 1.4 are different  due  to
       the  use  of different versions of Berkeley DB in the backend. User cannot simply copy the
       database file from Evolution 1.4 to Evolution 2.8 in order to do the porting  of  address-
