"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
"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."
