What is happening for KOffice2.1

"Tables
Releasing a word processor without tables was pretty daring, and for 2.1 we did a lot of work to correct this. As part of the GSoC project we got Elvis Stansvik working on this for the whole summer. As this is part of KWord, I was the mentor and near the end we also got help from Casper Boemann. The end result is that KWord can show a huge set of tables based documents correctly. Its important to point out that this is ongoing work; creating new table cells or modifying the shape and look of a table is currently not possible.

"Change Tracking
While editing a text document you can always undo your changes and get back to the way your document looked before. But what if you want to show the actual changes made right inside the current document? Or even better, being able to see what your colleague changed in the document over the weekend. This is what change tracking offers and this has been integrated just last week and it looks like we’ll have most of the expected features available in 2.1 thanks to the work of Pierre Stirnweiss. The most exciting part is that this lays the foundations for projects like collaborative editing."
