Note that there are API changes between pilot-link 0.11.8 and 0.12.0.  I
don't know that the status of the jpilot/kpilot/multisync/.... projects
is, but this is the situation as regards gnome-pilot:

1.  gnome-pilot-2.0.14pre6 is a pre-release version of gnome-pilot,
    based on CVS as at 2006-08-30.  It can be built against pilot-link
    0.11.8 or 0.12.0 and includes support for libusb syncing (requires
    pl 0.12.0 which has been configured for libusb, blacklisting of the
    visor module, and installation of pilot-link udev rules).
2.  gnome-pilot-conduits-2.0.14pre5 is a pre-release version of
    gnome-pilot-conduits, based on CVS as at 2006-08-12.  It can be
    built against pilot-link 0.11.8 or 0.12.0.
3.  The Evolution CVS has not, AFAIK, been updated for the pilot-link
    0.12.0 API.  The patch by Mark Adams (and others?) included in the
    fc5 RPMs is a good starting point.  This patch is being reviewed
    with a view to submission to the Evolution team.  See recent
    postings to the gnome-pilot-list for details.
