"The first beta of 2.1 was released without any fanfares, but it
marked the transition into the bugfixing stage. We now think it's
time to let the users start to participate in the process. You can
see the progress in the full changelog.
"Something that is not obvious from the changelog is that there
has been much activity in the MS office import filters, especially
for MS Word and Powerpoint. Many new formatting features have been
implemented in both these filters. We expect KOffice 2.1 to be
better at reading MS file formats than any previous KOffice
"As was mentioned in the release notes for beta 1, the 2.1
release will contain new features in most applications, especially
KWord, KPresenter and Krita. It also features the come back of the
mathematical formula shape."
