Calrendar is an open source freeware program for rendering print quality calendars. It is currently in beta stage, which means that it may still be sensitive and can break at one point or another if you do not treat it like it was supposed to. The output from the program is PDF (thanks to Apache FOP 0.95), which comes bundled with the program. Below are some examples of what the program can do.

Images used in the example calendars are taken by Siv Samuelsson. The program itself is licensed by CC-GNU GPL, but the resulting calendars are license free. That means, if you can make a buck by using the program, so much the better for you. If you improve the program, you will either send me the improvements or release your own program under the same license.

The following countries calendars are currently supported: Sweden, Norway, and United States
