(note: this is an outdated copy of the same file calligra/filters/filter-status.txt, which is leading and out-dated as well slightly)

Some unmaintainted filters have been removed during the development, if you want to pick up work on them you can find a list at calligra/OBSOLETE.TXT

Calligra filters and State

The Calligra file import and export filters are not all in a good state. This document tries to make an inventory of all our filters, whether they are still useful and worth maintaining and whether they crash when used in KOffice 2.0.

Note: for testing the filters there exists the folder trunk/tests/calligratests in the KDE svn repository with test documents, some of which are no longer supported and an abortive attempt at creating an automated test application

Note: pole (p-ole) by Ariya has four copies: in the hancomword, starwriter, excel and powerpoint filters.
