Surprised no-one's mentioned this before...

Your editor, working with the Fedora Rawhide packaging of KPresenter 1.3.2, encountered a few occasional bugs. Try to create a presentation with the wrong template, and the whole thing just silently quits.

I don't think it's fair to criticise a project merely because there are a few bugs in the Fedora Rawhide version. Although it is pretty stable, Rawhide is supposed to be a development branch, released largely so people can find bugs in it.

I can't find a Fedora Bugzilla entry: any chance you could let someone know about the rest of the bugs so they can get filed?

Thanks,

James.

(FWIW: I am one of the regulars on the main Fedora list, and run Rawhide to see what's coming up...)

I wouldn't say the article containt 'unfair criticism' of KPresenter; it is way closer to a 'Glowing Review', wouldn't you say?

And the bug mentioned *is* indeed a bug. It could've been reported, though, but I don't know whether to Fedora or to KOffice.
