KOffice - Portability in Action

,----[ Quote ]
| I have on several occasions been asked "why do 
| you work on KOffice when OpenOffice.org 
| already exists and does everything people 
| need?". Well, there are several reasons why 
| OpenOffice.org (OOo) is not the end-all of 
| free office suites. This blog is the first in 
| a series that will outline why KOffice is 
| necessary and why it may in fact be the real 
| future of the free office suites.
| [...]
| So, the combination of these two makes KOffice 
| uniquely suited for non-standard platforms. 
| Non-standard by desktop standards, that is. 
| Most people today agree that mobile is the 
| future. And maybe so is KOffice...



KOffice - We Have a Plan

,----[ Quote ]
| At the end of November, the KOffice developers
| met in Oslo for their semi-annual developer
| sprint. You have probably read some of the many
| blog entries from that meeting or read some of
| the news articles that Jos Poortvliet wrote on
| the dot.
| Many things were discussed during the meeting,
| and one of them is how we can make KOffice
| mature enough for real users. If you have
| followed KOffice development, you have probably
| noticed that in all our release announcements,
| the latest of them for KOffice 2.1, we always
| labeled KOffice as not yet ready for real
| production usage. This is now about to change.


KOffice 2.1 Ready for Testing, Karbon Ready for Use

,----[ Quote ]
| One aspect of KOffice 2.1 that is ready for prime
| time is the Karbon vector graphics program.
| According to Nuno Pinheiro, designer of the Oxygen
| KDE theme: "I have tested Karbon and it is
| definitely usable for real work even if [it] lacks
| a few advanced SVG features."


KOffice 2.1 released, ups Microsoft Office compatibility

,----[ Quote ]
| In addition to better Microsoft Office file format
| compatibility, support for the OpenDocument Format
| (ODF) has also been improved.
| KWord, the Word processor, now has a new
| implementation of tables and changes in the
| document can be tracked and are displayed.
| Insertions, deletions and formatting changes have
| different colours.

KOffice 2.1 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The KOffice team is very happy to announce
| version 2.1.0 of KOffice, 6 months after
| the platform release 2.0.0. This release
| brings a number of new features as well as
| general improvements in the maturity of
| the individual applications. Importing of
| documents have also been given an
| overhaul.


KDE Community Repositions Brand, Releases KOffice 2.1

| focus being an open-source Linux desktop
| to being an overall open-source community.
| Meanwhile, Version 2.1 of KOffice, the
| office suite for KDE, is released.


KOffice 2.1 Release Candidate 1 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The application that has received the most
| bugfixes is once again Krita. Also KWord has
| seen numerous improvements in many places,
| and the Microsoft Word filter has once again
| been improved. The same goes for KPresenter
| and its Powerpoint import filter and
| KSpread.
