KOffice 2.0.0

After more than three years of development, a total rewrite of KWord, KPresenter and Karbon. Major evolution in KSpread and Krita, to adjust to the new shapes-based framework, the KOffice team has released version 2.0.0 today, which is the first milestone for the KOffice 2 serie. You can read the announcement on koffice.org.

We are aware that this release is far to be perfect, and we still recommand the use of 1.6.3 over 2.0.0, but it open the way to further improvement, first with further bug fixes released in the 2.0.x branch, with three planned maintaince released, about one every month (2.0.x maintenance cycle) and with a 2.1 features release in October (2.1 Release plan).

The main goal of this release is to show the new technologies and user interraction. So we would like to encourage developers to have a look at what they can do as plugins, and to tell us about their experience. And to encourage users to test the new interface and to comments on it.

    Cyrille, how many people are you on KOffice project ? Looks like you are only 2 or 3 to work on this project… Right ?

    Congrats, nice release,
    I often use kplato for little projects and in the 1.x version you had to generate the wbs code simply by clicking “generate wbs code” in the tools menu.
    Now this function is gone and so I can only define tasks and milestones, but can’t use the views like gantt.

    The doc isn’t updated 😉 so perhaps someone knows what to do.

    Thanks a lot.
