Project Release Information
This is the last maintenance release of the 1.6
series, containing mainly bugfixes.
Bugfixes and minor new features in Krita and Kexi.
Since this is a maintenance release, only two of
the components, Krita and Kexi, have new features.
Krita, the image editing application of KOffice,
has gotten a new Color Level filter. The new
features in Kexi, the desktop database application
competing with MS Access, include parameter
queries and a new combo box that takes advantage
of the database relationships.
This release is mostly a feature release of Krita and Kexi, but also contains major enhancements to the OpenDocument and MathML support in KFormula and new scripting functionality. This version also contains a vastly improved version of KPlato, the project planning application.
This is the second bugfix release with fixes
throughout all KOffice
components. The translations have been updated.
KOffice is an integrated office suite based on the KDE libraries. KOffice currently includes KWord, KSpread, KPresenter, KChart, Karbon14, Krita, Kexi, KFormula, Kugar, and Kivio. There are no special mail and news clients included in KOffice, because there are KMail and KNode available for KDE anyway. All KOffice components work together, and you can embed every KOffice component into any other KOffice component. This is realized using the KParts object model.
