Updates in This Release

Calligra 2.7 beta3 has a number of important fixes from the second beta. Here is an excerpt of the most important ones.

A fix in the common code that makes calligra not hang on some faulty documents, and fixes that make it work better on ARM.

Words, the word processing application, has a fix in the WordPerfect import, which makes the filter work (and being enabled) again.

Krita, the 2D paint application, has an updated splash screen, a fix for the file layer (#320017), a fix for alpha color space conversion, a fix for merging layers with inherited alpha (#318318), a fix in the layout of tool option panels, an update of the scRGB profile (#319579), an improvement in the transformation while rotating (#319444), and several crash fixes (#319764, #319855, #320037).

    why no Mac OSX?

      Because nobody has gone through the process yet to make an installer for MacOSX. We know that it works because people have built it and run it on Macs.

        I’m very eager to see how this goes and try it out. It’s ambitious, but oh, so atctatrive. I’ve been looking frantically for some organizational software that can see me through the entire process so far, nothing quite fits. If I find something I can work with for writing, formatting goes out the window. There’s just no middle ground so far. I haven’t tried Scrivener, though it has several of the features I’m looking for. Editing and most of all proofreading has been an impossible dream in the various software applications. Thus far, it looks like I’ll end up using 3 or 4 separate tools, which flies in the face of organization I’ll still have files all over the place.

    Please improve the installer in Windows!
    Loved the Office suite but the installer is atrocious.
