The KOffice Team has announced the release of KOffice version 2.0 Beta 2, the second beta version of the upcoming version 2.0. The goal for the second beta is to show progress made since beta 1, as well as to gather feedback from both users and developers on the new UI and underlying infrastructure. This will allow the team to release a basically usable 2.0 release, demonstrating our vision for the future of the digital office to a larger audience and attract new contributions both in terms of code and ideas for improvements. Since the last beta release a significant set of issues and speed-up fixes have been integrated for all applications and this release shows the shift of focus from new features to bug fixes until 2.0 is released. More information on the full announcement while the release notes tell you how to get it.
