Kraft Release 0.55

May 29, 2014 2 comments

Herewith I announce the availability of the new Kraft release 0.55.

It was finished today and fixes two issues that came up after the release of the previous version: A compile fix for compiling Kraft against the latest version of ctemplate, which did not work out of the box with Kraft 0.54. The other fix is a fail in generating PDF documents which is a pretty severe problem for Kraft. Both is now working well with the new version 0.55 which can be downloaded here.

Thanks a lot to the Kraft community for testing!

If you find other problems, want to give feedback or seek help, please see here how to proceed. Thanks!

Kraft 0.50 Released

December 18, 2012 5 comments

blogheadShort before Christmas here is another present for you: After more than one year without release I am happy to announce the availability of Kraft 0.50, the latest version of the KDE software for easy quote and invoice management.

The most important change is that now multiple tax rates are supported within one document. That means that within e.g. one invoice items without tax, with reduced and full tax rate are supported. The sum calculation takes that in consideration properly. That enables Kraft for even more usecases.

Apart from that, a lot of bug fixes and improvements happened, read more details on the Kraft Homepage.

Sources and binary packages for various Linux distributions are available from the Download Page or will appear there soon.

This release is nice progress for Kraft and I hope you have fun and success with the new release. Thanks all who contributed to Kraft! I am looking forward to getting your feedback!

ownCloud BOF at Akademy 2012

June 17, 2012 1 comment

Akademy 2012 isn’t far any more and I just registered for a BOF at this years Akademy in Tallin. It will take place in Room 419 on monday, July 2nd, 2012 at 10:30.


Subject of the BOF will be the integration between KDE and ownCloud. As onwCloud originated from the KDE project we should meet and think together again how we can provide useful integration for the users combining the power of both technologies.

After a short overview of where the ownCloud project is going and what the recent achievements are (if participants are interested) I think we should concentrate on the technical level.

There are a couple of rough ideas already how we can integrate on a technical level, such as

  • Integration of the ownCloud data storage in the KDE user experience.
  • KDE features for the ownCloud Desktop Client like KWallet integration or KDE SSL certificate management.
  • Synchronisation of PIM data like contacts, addresses, bookmarks or RSS feeds
  • a syncing API for application data to be synced in KDE applications.
  • Syncing of KDE application configurations.
  • Plasma integration of ownCloud/syncing client.

I am sure there will be more we can come up with. Let me know upfront if you want me to put it on the list or even better show up at the BOF in person.
