Why are certain previous features missing?
Features like categories, tags, map location, birthday events, deleting of old events, calender view are not (yet) included. As some of these features are not needed for core functionality of the events component, they have been left out for upcoming version. Some features will be implemented by other plugins, while others might not return at all.
Why is some stuff not working?
This is version < 1, stuff won’t be working 100% until we reach version 1. Also, until BuddyPress is officially released, Events will not go into version 1.
Will there be a calendar view?
Yes there will. (notince my vagueness in setting a timeframe). There will be calendars galore: big ones, small ones, widgets, what have you. Be patient!
