Features, Office The Calligra Office Suite has announced its second snapshot release. The project, which is a fork of KOffice, is building a suite of productivity and creativity applications and is working towards its first formal end-user release due in October. The project is seeking feedback from end users particularly in the area of usability of the GUI. With this snapshot Calligra Office Words is claiming better compatibility with .docx than LibreOffice, and also claims to be approaching the best compatibility with legacy .doc formats.

Thanks, great reply.


You are more than welcome.

I actually have Calligra Words as packaged for the Archlinux kde-snapshots repository installed (KDE 4.7 beta). I'll take another look when Qt 4.8 is out.


Even in this second preview snapshot I don't believe that the issue with the GUI has been addressed yet. They are still working on it. Some patience is still required.

It should only get better from this point onwards. Right now, apparently, the Calligra suite has more developers working on it than it has ever had in the past.
