The KOffice team is very happy to announce the arrival of KOffice 2.2.0, half a year after version 2.1 was released. This release brings an unprecedented number of new features and bugfixes as can be seen in the full list of changes.
There are two reasons for this very high development rate. Firstly, people have started to notice KOffice again and the developer community is growing. Secondly, Nokia is sponsoring development of KOffice for their mobile office viewer. Here follows a list of the most important changes in this release.
The developers behind the KDE desktop environment have released the first beta of version 4.5. Although the major focus during this development cycle is stability, the release also brings some nice new features and user interface improvements.

Which Linux distro should I use? It's one of the most common questions for new and aspiring Linux users. There's so many to choose from, how can you pick the right one? Let's see if we can help clear it up a little and help you choose between all the other major distros.
We are currently advising people to not install Cacti 0.8.7f due to the following issues:
- LDAP authentication for login produces a warning about an undefined index
- Automatic page refresh on graph views does now function
- Save button on user management graph permissions does not work
- Deleting a graph tree does not work with Plugin Architecture installed
- If using snmp binaries some snmp get requests will fail
If you have already upgraded to 0.8.7f, you can simple move back to 0.8.7e.
Cacti 0.8.7g will be release on June 7th to address these issues.
