    Nice. I wonder if it compiles under x32, because it would go great in the low-power LXQt netbook.

    Having not looked at this for many many years... good on them.
    I feel it would be great for the devs to team up with LibreOffice though.
    Such a massive project, don't see the need to so many.

    So I've compiled Calligra 3, it works but again, having all the usual toolbars on the right rather than at the top where every other word processor has them is counter intuitive. I tried placing the side bar to the top, but it still takes up the same vertical space, now it just uses up the whole width of the window too

    I hope their user interface folk take a look and hopefully offer the option of using some kind of standard layout

    Oh please don't think I'm bashing the effort they have put in - but there certainly has been a dip in development since the koffice -> calligra rebrand I'm guessing the Krita folk were carrying the other parts

    Nonsense, the market is pretty much the same as it ever was, Google Docs has been around for about a decade and never made serious in-roads, the Local Microsoft Office suite continues to be the dominant office suite, and LibreOffice continues to be it's only heavyweight competitor. Calligra basically has the problem that it lacks enough marketshare to have a serious development force behind it to really attempt to compete with LibreOffice, As to Microsoft Office in the Cloud, I haven't paid close attention but doesn't seem to have effected LibreOffice much at all to me.

    I'm hoping they finally made Words look more like a word processor and less like a painting app
    Words in particular has been neglected since the split of koffice and calligra, since it was the kword maintainer that stayed with koffice.

    You might like it, but for anyone switching from another word processor it just seems arse over elbow

    The anzwix link back to kde git is broken.

    anzwix link :
    http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=calligra...._source=anzwix

    Working git webui:
    https://cgit.kde.org/calligra.git/co...7e22a8ce740688

    It might have to do with quickgit redirecting to cgit...
