SOFTWARE VERSION: (Settings > General > About product) 1.2009.42-11 EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: (Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message Connection Failed appears)) I want to see how my week looks like, three weeks from now. 1. Open Calendar in week view 2. Move forward by wiping my finger from right to left 3. Repeat until the desired week shows up EXPECTED OUTCOME: The device moves to the desired week and shows the events taking place there. (wipe->wipe->wipe->events load) ACTUAL OUTCOME: The device loads events after each wipe. This means, that there is a waiting time when it's loading each week. Specially the birthday calendar seems to take long. (wipe->events load->wipe->events load->wipe->events load) REPRODUCIBILITY: (always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10) always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: account-plugin-haze(0.3), Bounce(1.0.0), Droid Fonts(1.01-dfsg0maemo3), eCoach(1.56), Facebook Installer(1.0-4+0m5), Facebook Widget and Photo Uploader(0.4.7), Flashlight(0.1-0), Foreca Installer(1.0+0m5), ForecWeather widget(0.9.4), Hermes(0.2.3), MaStory(2.0-2), Pixelpipe Upload and Share(1.1.00.1+0m1), Simple Brightness Applet(1.1-1maemo0) OTHER COMMENTS: In the monthly view, this seems to be solved. There you can wipe over the screen several times and it moves fast to the desired month. Although, there as well it would be nice if the name of the month in the title bar changes with each wipe.

This has been fixed in package calendar-ui 0.5-9.10+0m5 which is part of the internal build version 2.2009.42-7 (Note: The first number is the branch, 2009 is the year, and the number after is the week.) Any future public update released with a later branch number and the year/week later than this internal build version will include the fix. Note that 1.2009.42-11 does not yet contain this fix. Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as VERIFIED after the public update has been released and if you have some time. To answer popular followup questions: * Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance. * There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions. A Brainstorm proposal exists at http://maemo.org/community/brainstorm/view/undelayed_bugfix_releases_for_nokia_open_source_packages-002/
Verified in non-public PR1.1 version (2.2009.51-1).
The problem reported here should be fixed in the update released today for public: The Maemo5 update version 2.2009.51-1 (also called "PR1.1" sometimes). Please leave a comment if the problem is not fixed for you in this update version.
I'm sorry to say that this is far from fixed. My smart birthday calendar shows I have 287 entries and changing from one week to another might be marginally faster. I can't tell since it's still really awfully slow. Turning birthday calendar off (ticking the checkbox under settings) shows acceptable delays/responsiveness. (PS: I don't agree with the original description: there is a short time (0.5 sec?) in which you can swipe swipe swipe to fast forward three months, but swiping after 1 sec won't do anything until all activities have been loaded, after which is progress to the next/previous month. However, the response time for changing month is acceptable since it doesn't wait for birthday events, which is good!)

The week view, after the 0.5 secs delay, won't change week until all birthday events have loaded. The month view is never stuck waiting for events to load. Looks like month view uses an async call after the initial delay (0.5 secs), while the week view uses a synchronous call after the initial delay.

According to developers this is a completely different issue, plus it is required to know how many birthdays and events (separately recurrent and non-recurrent) you have in calendar. Please feel free to file a separate bug report.
