Updated libical packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The libical packages provide a reference implementation of the iCalendar data type and serialization format used in dozens of calendaring and scheduling products.

Bug Fix

The libical packages can be configured to abort when parsing improperly formatted iCalendar data, primarily useful for testing and debugging. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux this behavior is disabled, but some parts of the libical source code were improperly checking for this option. Consequently, the library aborted even if configured not to do so. The underlying source code has been modified and libical no longer aborts in the described scenario.
All users of libical are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
