Let me make sure I understand the request correctly..

You're talking about an ICS output for all calendars in your sitetree?

Not necessarily all of them in the site tree, but all events and announcements that have a relationship to the calendar page being called.

I was thinking something along the lines of http://server/calendar-page/ics/all which would be an ICS formatted output that contained a VEVENT for each event and announcement that would be seen when you view http://server/calendar-page/

That way if there were more than one calendar on a single site you would have a feed for each calendar, and a feed for each event on each calendar (as it is implemented currently).

Hopefully that makes sense.

One small feature that would make life easier is having a 'select all' option on the import from folder. ie in Image Gallery: importing 100 new photos into an album and then having to click the checkbox for each one .... it would be great if we could just choose to select all.

Just replaced the old silverstripe gallery module with yours on one of our sites , love it !

Love to use the video-feature as well ... Is it possible to include videos in the existing image-gallery as well ?

That's the goal. But rather than cobble it into the existing imagegallery module, I'm going to give the video features a complete overhaul and decouple them from DOM. Right now the video features are good but they're just not extensible enough to start using them with other modules. I'll probably post some wireframes in the near future of some ideas I have for an audio/video manager module.

check... thanks for the update..

Any pointers on how to (temporarily) hack it into the gallery ? or should I just go for a custom DOM in that particular page ?

Well you can create your own gallery by using FileDOM of videos, just like in the tutorial, and on the template, just use the $VideoPopup method. But if you're mixing images and videos, it's a little trickier. You need to have a way of determining on the template what type of file it is. You can probably just do <% if ClassName = FLV %>$VideoPopup<% else %>$CroppedImage(100,100)<% end_if %> or something like that.
