I will be releasing an EventCalendar module next week. If anyone wants to take it for a test drive, I could use some testers. The demo, in an almost-beta state is here:
and the admin is here:
and the docs are here:
and a recipe on how to extend the calendar to do just about anything is here:

I'll test! This is the module I've been working on that prevented me from testing your image gallery extension. I'll do some Q/A tonight.
Some initial bug findings:
Dates and Times tab -> The times always save with a date of 1/13/2009 (today's date), could be confusing to people, even though I understand only the time portion is used on the front-end.
Dates and Times tab -> Blank entry is also created during save/publish. Not a big deal, but again, could be confusing to people.
The advanced calendar I see has a category (type). Would it be possible in the site tree to branch out the types? I'd imagine it would be an easy extension I could do myself, just curious your thoughts. More importantly, could the types be manageable through the admin interface, or only hard-coded? (This is one 'feature' of SS I'm still trying to implement properly without requiring a whole separate admin top nav element).
I'll play with it more tomorrow, I couldn't really get much else to break.

Impressive. This will be a great add-on to SS.
I especially like the options to add an image and a link to a registration form.

The Advanced calendar is simply an example of how the Calendar can be extended to do anything you want. Please don't take it literally. All those extra fields are just examples of how you can modify the core Calendar class.
For a good tutorial on how do extend the calendar, see the recipe I posted above.
The popup bug is a known SS bug when ComplexTableFields are loaded after normal TableFields.

realy impressive, how can be helped by testing ?
Is ist possible to get a version for local install in own test installations ?

I guess I was hoping that people could hammer on it a bit and see if anything breaks. I'd also like people to check out the docs and see if there's any features they'd like to add, and if it seems like it has any legs.
Download will be available next week per an agreement with my colleagues.

I see that there are 2 announcements listed for the Basic Calendar but when viewing the page I cannot see the announcements listed.
Suggestion for the calendar Widget: Can the dates that have events scheduled be highlighted a different colour?
When clicking on a particular date the entries to the left display all events from that day and on. My first impression was that it would behave as the Start - End filter widget and only display any events for that day.
Awesome module by the way.

Wow. Great catches, Chucky. I fixed both of those bugs.
As for the calendar widget colors, well, like any module, the CSS is meant to just give you something generic and I expect the end user will customize the look and feel for his specific site.
Thanks for testing!
