Filed under
KDE

ericsbinaryworld.com: I’ve been using KDE since November of 2010 around the time that 4.5 was released for Fedora.

aseigo.blogspot: I'm really happy with how the number of bug reports coming in is not a massive deluge of different bugs, but mostly just endless repetition of the same handful. Even better than having bugs reported is having bugs fixed, of course. Which is exactly what's been happening in droves.

LibreOffice 5.0 Right Around the Corner, Guided Tour of LibreOffice

  • LibreOffice 5.0 Right Around the Corner
    Major release LibreOffice 5.0 is due next Wednesday with a lot of new features. Italo Vignoli today posted The Road to LibreOffice 5.0 in which he looks back at all the added features since January 2015 with version 3.3. Today's summary shows "the impressive amount of new features added to LibreOffice since version 3.3." LibreOffice 3.3 was released in January 2011. This release was significant in that the development and management of LibreOffice had come together in a short time and put out a release that brought several new features. SVG support, easier title and page formatting and numbering, improved ergonomics in Calc, and Microsoft Works support were among the newest features added by The Document Foundation.
