        Release Notes: This version brings fully Akonadi-based address book integration with many bugfixes and improvements in usage. Multiple address books are now handled correctly.

Loading speed has been improved tremendously. The text template widget (from which the user picks template texts for header and footer texts) has been completely reworked. A lot of bugs have been fixed. Kraft now supports localized document templates.

          Release Notes: This version contains large changes in the item template catalog handling. Catalogs can now have an arbitrary depth of sub chapters. The sequence of templates within the sub chapters is user editable by drag and drop. Deletion of templates was added. This release has a newly designed and improved document digest list view resulting in faster and nicer view. The script that converts RML to PDF was reworked; now it depends on Python only. Many bugfixes went into Kraft, especially in the area of the KDE address book integration, text template handling, and more.

          •  18 Apr 2010 18:06

            Release Notes: This is the first version that is based on KDE 4. There is a new setup assistant that starts automatically on the first startup of Kraft. It takes the database details and creates and populates the database layer automatically. This release supports SQLite as an embedded database backend (in addition to MySQL). Both changes make the setup of Kraft even easier.
