Kexi/Releases/3.0.2 Changes

Changes in KEXI

Highlight: KEXI application has a number of general user interface and usability improvements. Some fixes for problems that appeared in version 3.0.0, including backward-compatibility. There are further improvements to the query designer (WHERE conditions and switching between views). Forms and reports also benefit from improvements of queries. KEXI now works better under non-KDE Plasma desktops such as XFCE, what can also have benefits on MS Windows. There are no new features apart from auto-opening command line options that work again.
