Calligra Suite is an open source set of applications written
to help you to
accomplish your work. It includes office applications such as a word
processor, a spreadsheet, a presentation program, a database
application, etc, and raster and vectorial graphics tools.
Author is a specialized tool for serious writers aiming to become what
Krita is for painters. The application will support a writer in the
process of creating an eBook from concept to publication.
Calligra Author targes two types of user:
- Novelists who produce long texts with complicated plots
involving many characters and scenes but with limited formatting
- Textbook authors who want to take advantage of the added
possibilities in eBooks compared to paper-based textbooks.
Calligra has been under development since 2010, when it was
spun from KOffice. Calligra Author is a new member of the growing
Calligra application family. It will be released with Calligra 2.6 with
the first version being very similar to Calligra Words.
