The goal is to provide tight (but optional) integration of the OpenOffice.org
to the KDE environment beginning with KDE look and feel and ending with KDE
- OpenOffice.org Qt port was renamed to KDE
- SUSE supports this project by
employing Jan Holesovsky (the original author and leader of this project)
- Development version of KDE NWF available for download and made its way
to the OOo CVS (branch cws_srx645_nativewidget1).
- The pages are up and running. Most of the content from the previous cuckooo pages
||A KDE Part which allows OpenOffice.org to be run in a Konqueror
||A port of OpenOffice.org that uses Qt for the implementation of VCL
(instead of pure X calls), KDE dialogs, and KDE data sources. It is for
2.0 (680) codeline.
||Implementation of Native Widget Framework for KDE. NWF allows
OpenOffice.org to have the look of the host platform. It is for 1.1
(645) codeline, but it will be used in 2.0 as well.
It all began in July 2003, when the leader of this project read an article
about Ximian's work on improving
OpenOffice.org. The effort to do something similar to Bonobo OOo
integration project (dead now) resulted in cuckooo, a KDE
Part displaying OpenOffice.org in the Konqueror. Further continuation was the
base for the KDE vclplug (former OOo Qt port project).
