After a long time in development, Calligra, the open-source office suite designed for KDE Plasma desktops, makes a comeback in 2017 with the release of the 3.0 milestone.
While many GNU/Linux users were able to download and install the new Calligra 3.0 office suite from the official channels of the project or the stable software repositories of their favorite GNU/Linux distribution since last week, an official announcement was published earlier this week.
Many have expected Calligra 3.0 to be a major overhaul of the office suite, but the release notes do not reflect that. Instead, it looks like the project is splitting apart as several of the components are no longer available, including the popular Krita digital paining software, Brainstorm mind mapping app, and Author eBook creator.
