Kraft Release 0.53

oct 11th, 2013

This is Kraft release 0.53. It fixes another problem a user reported against 0.52: Sub chapters of catalogs could not be dragged and dropped to top level, this is working now. Please update.

Kraft Release 0.52

oct 8th, 2013

Here is the next release of Kraft, version 0.52. It fixes the problem that the previous tarball 0.51 did not contain the source revision that it should have and was not properly working. Version 0.52 fixes that. Please update.

Kraft Release 0.51

sep 22th, 2013

I am happy to release Kraft 0.51 today. This is a bugfix release which brings a handful of useful bugfixes which were reported by Kraft users since the last release.

In the catalogue view, now drag and drop is working to rearrange templates. Removing of sub chapters is also working now. A bug in the unit handling was fixed that picked wrong units in some cases. The path to document templates is not utf8 save.

As a new feature the own identity now can be picked from Krafts settings dialog.

Thanks for your interest and contribution to Kraft. Please help us with your feedback.

Kraft Release 0.50

dec 18th, 2012

I am happy to announce the release of version 0.50 of Kraft, the KDE software for easy business document 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 or full tax rate are supported. The sum calculation takes that in consideration properly. That makes Kraft an even more multi purpose software.

Apart from that, a lot of bug fixes and improvements happened such as:

  • Addressees can be added to a document even if the document already exists, not only if the doc is created.
  • Documents display a page number on page two to end.
  • On insertion of a new item to a document, the new item is focussed automatically.
  • Manually added items can be added to the catalogue on entering again.
  • The document type configuration dialog was reworked.
  • The amount of processed SQL commands on setup is correct.
  • Document saving is more performant.
  • Improved error handling if Akonadi or the report generation fails. That eases debugging.
  • Import of CSV-lists into the document was fixed.
  • MySQL database setup is fixed.

This release is a 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!

Kraft Release 0.45

nov 8th, 2011

A severe bug in 0.44 regarding the display of decimal places in the PDF document causes the generation of wrong documents. This is the reason for the release of version 0.45 today which only fixes this bug.

Please skip 0.44 and directly go for version 0.45.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Kraft Release 0.44

nov 3rd, 2011

We are happy to announce version 0.44 of Kraft, the KDE software to manage business documents in the small enterprise.

This version brings a fully Akonadi based address book integration with many bug fixes and improvements in usage: Multiple address books are handled correctly now and can be chosen from within Kraft. The whole address selection widget was improved with search fields, a detail view of the selected addresses and direct access buttons to edit and add contacts. Furthermore the loading speed was improved tremendously.

The text template widget from which the user picks template texts for header- and footer texts were also completely reworked. A lot of bugs were fixed, the guy was made more obvious and context sensitive help texts guide the user in his actions.

The third big news is that Kraft now supports localized document templates by default. Kraft is installed now with a german and english template for offers and invoices. Other localizations are welcome.

As usual a lot of other bugfixes and minor improvements went into this release. It is recommended for production environments. Please give feedback!

Kraft Release 0.43

may 25th, 2011

Today, the Kraft team announces version 0.43 of Kraft, the KDE software to manage business documents in the small enterprise.

This is a quick follow up release to verion 0.41 which was released in april 2011. It adds further improvements to Kraft's lists of documents and comes with a more optimized underlying model. The most visible change is that the search field for the document digest lists is back again.

We wish a lot of fun with Kraft. Please give feedback, read details about that on the Contact Page.

Kraft Release 0.41

april 18th, 2011

The Kraft team is happy to announce version 0.41 of Kraft, the KDE software to manage business documents in the small enterprise.

This version contains large changes on 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. Templates can be moved around within the cataloges using drag and drop. Sub chapters can be transfered to documents with one click now. Furthermore, deletion of templates was added.

Kraft 0.41 has a newly designed and improved document digest list view. The widgets showing the latest- all and timebased list of documents are now

completely based on the model/view implementation of Qt which results in a large speed improvement. The document details of a selected list entry are displayed in a more userfriendly view.

The new digest view in Kraft 0.41

PDFs of the documents are created utilizing the ReportLab RML library. The script that converts RML to PDF was completely reworked so that it now depends on python only which simplifies dependencies and the port to other platforms.

Furthermore a lot of bug fixes went into Kraft, especially in the area of the KDE addressbook integration, text template handling and more.

We wish a lot of fun working with Kraft. Please give feedback, check the details about that on the Contact Page

Kraft Release 0.40

april 18th, 2010

The Kraft team is happy to announce the new stable version 0.40 of the KDE office software Kraft. Eleven month of work resulted in Kraft 0.40 as the first version based on the KDE 4 software platform. Many changes to the codebase of Kraft where made to benefit from the new technologies introduced with KDE 4.

The latest version of Kraft comes with only minor changes in the set of features compared to the KDE 3 version, as the focus was integration to KDE 4 data management. The changes are aimed to make Kraft even more convenient to work with for beginners.

There is a new setup assistant that starts automatically on first run of Kraft. It reads the database details, creates and populates the database layer automatically. Furthermore, Kraft now supports SQLite as an embedded database backend in addition to MySQL. Both improvements make the setup of Kraft even more easy.

We are also happy to announce a new project homepage available here. It is a new technology base to write better documentation and make it available.

We wish you a lot of fun and success working with Kraft 0.40 on the KDE 4 platform.

We are looking forward getting feedback from you on your Kraft experience. Please find the details on the Contribution page.
