    That’s strange. Is that a feature announcement or a fixed bug? 😀

  2. Windows says:

    Where is the Windows 7 version? I’m not seeing it. I went to the “Download” page, and the links listed there under “Windows” come up with nothing.

    The “KDE on Windows” page doesn’t show anything Calligra… after downloading the installer, and then going from there, it lists a bunch of applications, but nothing with “Calligra” in the name…. so how do I get the latest, stable Windows 7 Version?


    • Windows says:

      … or is the “Krita” download also “Calligra”?

    • Windows says:

      Possibly need to delete my comments…. It looks like I might have jumped the gun

    • Windows says:

      Can’t find it. Downloaded Krita, but it was stand-alone…no Calligra suite. Really would like to try it out on WINDOWS 7!

    • Windows says:

      No reply? None? Where is windows?

        Im sorry to tell you that Windows is the glassy thing on your wall. I never heard of a software called like that… what GNU/Linux Distribution are you using?
