This Week...

We can now do bash scripting in KDevelop. KGhostview gets command line switches and some bug fixes. Konqueror tab delay fixed again, Safari fixes to v68 (current is v73) merged. Kicker docking and Kwin crash bugs fixed.

I tagged the the first beta (KOFFICE_1_3_BETA1) of koffice and koffice-i18n, created the source packages and now I'm waiting for Andreas to do the announcement. After that, beta1 will be oficially released; note that we won't wait for all the binary packages to appear (so far there's SuSE and Slackware).

Then you may start committing new features again, according to the plan (until the second beta, due around June 10, 2003).

This beta has code version 1.2.90 (beta2 will be 1.2.91 and so on), so don't be surprised: it's because of problems that versions like "1.3-beta1" might pose to RPM packages.
We should see the announcement on www.koffice.org shortly.
Caleb Tennis wrote me a note saying:
