Calligra on Android

As most of you are probably well aware, since quite a while it is not very hard to write Qt applications to run on Android devices. A couple of weeks ago we at KO GmbH decided to look into how hard it would be to get KDE applications to run, and more specifically, if it would be possible to run Calligra with one of its mobile UI's on an android device.

MSOOXML: Why oh why?

Some like to make a joke of OpenOffice.org coming with around 8 different string-implementations and comparing that with what we are having in Calligra with QString. But when we worked back then in OASIS to form what later became the ISO OpenDocument standard we left such implementation details out.

Calligra Words mini-sprint day #2

Today is the second and last day of the Calligra Words mini-sprint. After spending yesterdays first day on planing and implementation of decisions made we spent today on solving all kind of problems that showed up since then.

In particular today we land;
* Fix wrong placement of anchored object if the object is anchored in a paragraph that spans two pages, and the anchor is in the part of the paragraph that is on the first page.
* Be sure to only try position an anchor once per layout-run.
* Implement anchor stacking.

Calligra Words mini-sprint day #1

Actually it's day #2 already since Boemann and myself already started hacking away yesterday evening when I arrived at his place in Denmark.

The main goal of our small mini-sprint is to address the various problems we have within Calligra Words with anchors and anchoring objects and text running around such anchored objects.
