KOffice 2.0 Beta 4 ! Still time to come and help !

Today was the release of KOffice 2.0 Beta 4, the last beta for 2008, which close an other year without a major release of KOffice. The second in a row, but the last, but if you want 2.0 to happen quicker, and want to help, there is a lot of things you can do:

  • Testing, feeding the developers with bug reports, for this there are packages for the usual distributions: debian (in experimental), kubuntu (not yet online), opensuse (in the build service, either as beta or as nightly build), for more update information see beta4 release notes. If you feel like it you can follow the build instructions.
  • Coding, we won’t repeat it enough, but we are very short on manpower, so if you feel bored, or interested, don’t hesitate to join us (you can find some information on the junior jobs page)
  • Webmastering: prior to 2.0 release we want to revamp the KOffice 2.0 website, for this we are still looking for people interested in making web contents
  • Doc writting: you feel like explaining how things works in an application ? You like to write tutorials ? Well, all of our docs are completely outdated.

And if you have more imagination than me ! And find something else you want to do ! Do come as well, even if it’s just for dancing around the #koffice channel on irc.freenode.net !

    @Peter (and anyone else) if you want to help at webmastering (or anything else) the best is to either join us on #koffice (on irc.freenode.net) or on the koffice-devel@kde.org mailing list.

    KOffice 1.9.98.3 packages for Fedora 9 and 10 can be found in the unstable section of the kde-redhat repository.
