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.

Tables and weird formatting just never seem to convert correctly. I'll install all the KDE libs just to get better docx conversion.

An included mobile version is a great idea too. I'm really looking forward to trying this out now!

Many times. Doesn't matter, as it seems .doc conversion is not on the top of their priorities. This is why people are forced to stick to M$, which arguably has gotten much better over the last few releases.
