Subject: Release schedule for KOffice 1.1 (proposal)

Well, it's fashionable to announce release schedules proposals those days, so here's one more :)

The following is the outline for our KOffice 1.1 release schedule.

We aim for the following improvements among others:

- Many features added to KSpread, KPresenter and KIllustrator
- Rewrite of KWord using Qt's richtext engine
- Much improved mathematical formula support
- Addition of Kivio (Flowcharting program)
- Improvements to the filters, especially the MSOffice import filters
- [Addition of Krayon ? What about Kugar, Rekall ?]
KOffice 1.1 will be released independent from KDE 2.2.
