KDE Office Suite
When was the last time you took a look at KOffice, KDE's native office suite? This article looks at the good, and the bad, in the latest version of the 1.3 series. Although OpenOffice.org grabs most of the limelight KOffice has been steadily improving, with a low memory footprint and tight integration with Konqueror you might find useful.
The KOffice team is happy to bring you the first bugfix package that builds upon the successful 1.3 version, adding even more enhanced OpenOffice.org import and export filters, improved spellchecking with ispell, fixes in hyphenation and many more. See the release notes and the complete list of changes.
Months after the previous beta version and a lot of framework changes later, the Kexi Team is pleased to announce Beta 2 of Kexi, the integrated data management environment for KDE. This is a preview release for interested developers and experienced users; changes from the previous beta include an integrated kexisql engine and an improved user interface.
The official release of KOffice 1.3 was originally planned for this week
but since many people are already preparing themselves for the upcoming
end-of-year festivities we are afraid that binary packages may not become
available for all platforms in time. For that reason we have decided to
release a special KOffice 1.3 Christmas Preview for all of you who can't wait
