"The KDE Project today announced the release of KOffice version 2.0 Beta 1, the first beta version of the upcoming version 2.0.

"Over the last few years, the KOffice team has reworked the framework into an agile and flexible codebase. Our intention was to increase integration between the components of KOffice, decreasing duplication of functionality and easing maintenance and development of new features. Furthermore, new approaches to UI design and interacting with the user have been implemented to support the new capabilities.

"The goal of this release is to gather feedback from both users and developers on the new UI and underlying infrastructure. This will allow us to release a basically usable 2.0 release, demonstrating our vision for the future of the Digital Office to a larger audience and attract new contributions both in terms of code and ideas for improvements.

"This is the first beta release of KOffice 2.0, and the first version we encourage users to download and try out. After a very long development cycle KOffice is now in feature freeze. The development team will from now on shift focus from new features to bug fixes until 2.0 is released."
