In another of my (appearently common) insomnia nights, I decided to add a cool new to my pet application - Calendar. Something fast enough to be done in one night, but still useful.

Many code optimizations, cleanups and fixes Improve Year view's rendering Unfortunately, Calendar won't receive Week view this cycle. It'll be postponed to 3.20 cycle, which I'll have much more time to work on Calendar.
