In addition to Kexi, for benefit and convenience of fellow software engineers, we're sharing frameworks originally developed within the Kexi Project (that is KDb, KProperty, KReport). There are marked with the same version as Kexi and are prepared for general, standalone usage. For general convenience the frameworks tend to be released in the same time as Kexi.

Check out you Linux distribution for binary packages, tell your distributor if they are missing. Universal packages for Linux and Windows will come be a bit later.

Kexi 3 offers the same list of features as Kexi 2 and uses the same format for .kexi files and server projects. Exceptions: no scripting (in Kexi 2 it was present as experimental) and (in 3.0) no "map" elements. Further Kexi version would of course get new features not present in Kexi 2.

Note: source code downloads for now. The code is known to build and run with Linux (gcc) and MS Windows (msvc).
