May 22, 2000, 18:22 (2 Talkback[s])

"Today, Kaiwal Software (Shane) Co., Ltd. and theKompany.com signed a sponsorship agreement to support the development of KWord. Two programmers will be available for dedicated KWord development for a period of two years. TheKompany.com is sponsoring the salaries while Kaiwal is providing the equipment and the workspace in Phuket/Thailand."

"Enhancements planned include, but are not limited to, filter development, keeping KWord up to date with the ongoing KDE developments, integrating scripting facilities and internationalization. All contributed code will be published under either the GPL or the LGPL."

"We recognize the importance of a full blown Office suite for KDE and Linux to give users strong incentives to migrate from MS Office and Windows. KWord as a key application of KOffice will play an important role in this. To achieve that goal we'll help to make KWord as stable, slick and feature rich as possible."
