List of changes

General

  • Fix numerous memory leaks in core module, table view, reports, database handling, main window

Main window

  • Completely new Project Navigator pane compliant with the KDE 4 style
  • Object tabs are now movable, simplified (contain only names/captions of objects), have tooltip and "what's this" information, have context menu with "Close Tab" action

Forms

  • New widget properties:
    • Image Box: Smoothing. When "Scaled Contents" is on, image is scaled smoothly. On by default.
    • Widgets Tree tab reintroduced (was disabled in 2.2)

Reports

  • report plugins are now supported what simplifies adding new elements; it's also helpful feature for KPlato which reuses Kexi Reports

Import & Export

  • Fixed layout of the CSV Export dialog, fixed regression when "Export Data to File" action was not available when table or query is opened
  • MS Access import:
    • Kexi provides one of the best support for MS Access files in the open source world. Now large "memo" values (i.e. long text) can be imported from MS Access files, that is ("multipage" ones, up to 65535 bytes). This fixes reported bug Bug #244420.
      • Fixed encoding errors for non-latin characters, so now it is possible to properly import texts in languages like russian, korean, etc.

Database drivers

  • PostgreSQL: A fix for a serious bug: strings were not properly escaped
  • SQLite: A fix for stability issue - there was possible crash on closing the SQLite database connection. This fixes reported bug Bug #245030.

List of missing or discontinued features compared to previous version is also available.
