Features, Office "OpenOffice.org 2.0.2 is available today. This release is recommended for everyone. It contains some new features, fixes many small bugs, and resolves numerous issues. The community have further added import filters for Quattro Pro 6 and Microsoft Word 2. As well, other import filters have been improved and it is now easier to use mail merge. Integration with the KDE address book is now possible. The appearance has also been enhanced, and for Linux users, there are new icon sets for KDE and GNOME."

There was a native QT/KDE port. At the moment it seems to be 'copying' QT - buttons look the same etc, but menus flicker and everything. There is no integration with the KDE open/save dialoge, KDE print system, etc etc

I doubt you'll see a port to Qt, that would be a massive undertaking and the resources would probably be better directed to improving KOffice (particularly MS interoperability).

But there is a package that incorporates KDE integration, basically the crystal icon set and the KDE file-picker, which works with all it's kio goodness. Don't think you'll find it on the OOo website but check your distro repos. I know I've had it with Suse and Kubuntu. There's a similar package with Gnome integrations as well.

It's a stop-gap, but it's better than nothing.

Not sure what my version is running... but it uses KDE dialogs wherever applicable, there's no flicker and if it's not QT it really does look like it : widget theme, detachable toolbars with hover effect, menus with KDE icons and fancy effects...

I'm running 2.0.1 on gentoo, built with "+kde -gnome -gtk" use flags.
