NewtSync quick fix for iCal 1.5.2

Today's [iCal] update to version 1.5.2 is confusing [NewtSync]. NewtSync wants a version of 1.5.1 or higher, though when it asks iCal for it's version number the "1.5.2" is gets seems to not pass whatever test NewtSync is running on it. Hey, version numbers are tricky.

Here's a quick fix.

Drill down into Open up GetiCalVersion.applescript, it should open in Apple's Script Editor application. Change it like so:

-- GetiCalVersion.applescript
-- nSync

--tell application "iCal" to return version
return "1.5.1" as text

That comments out the version check and will always think that iCal is the correct version "1.5.1". It will work until a new version of NewtSync is released to handle the new iCal.
