Calligra plans new professional writing program
The Calligra development team has announced that it plans to add a new program called "Author" to the Calligra Suite, its collection of open source office and productivity applications. The developers say that Calligra Author will be a writing tool aimed at professional authors and will support the process of creating a new book from conception to its final publication.
Since announcing the start of the project, Wallin has published a progress update to his blog that includes a roadmap with requested features. So far, the team has published the initial Author code for review, and created a bugzilla page, mailing list and special user forum for feedback and suggestions. Currently in development, the first version of Calligra Author – including full documentation in both eBook and Wiki formats – will be released with version 2.6 of the Calligra Suite in late 2012.
