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.

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.

3.0.2 Changes

Changes in Kexi

Highlight: Kexi 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.

  • General
    • 3c210bdc8 Don't move to first Project navigator's item when last object tab is closed (usability fix)

  • Table Designer
  • Query Designer
  • ce88fbae8 464196eac 24dccc710 Improve WHERE conditions handling in query designer (Bug #377579, Review #5295)
    • ac6b9a503 Fix updating SQL statement in SQL designer after switching from other views and property revert to previous SQL (Bug #377579)
  • Form Designer
    • 236681be7 Make check boxes two-state by default because this covers 99% of use cases. It is also Qt's default.
    • 6192dbc38 Don't set any special minimum size for checkbox form widgets, users may want to set specific small size (link)
    • 7e5f20b83 Fix geometry of the combo box (Bug #265330, Review #5486)
    • 22e905861 Make it possible to use vertical alignment property in Text Box form widgets

  • Report Designer
  • Buildsystem
  • Tests
    • 43724947a Search for resource file in bin/data also on non-Windows so tests work OK without installation of the project


Changes in KDb

  • General
    • 9730fa06 Fix possible issue: the WHERE condition can be lost while converting query to SQL. This can be seen in Kexi Query Designer.
    • c7dfaa15 Validate query and offer error message/description while setting or extending WHERE conditions
    • d81e9a1e Fix WHERE conditions handling (Review #5294)
    • 875de031 Make query parameters also work in COLUMNS section. Kexi query parameters do not work in COLUMNS section, e.g. this won't work ('invalid query' error appears): SELECT [Param]. The parameters work only in the WHERE section, e.g. SELECT 123 WHERE [Param] = 1. Port calligra commit 5c0d3ee52fd. (Bug #348473)

  • Tests

    • c5e550c Improve checking for validity of min/max/step/precision options for date/time/double types
    • f8ed63a Fix strikeout/underline font option not available in font dialogs. These options are missing in font dialogs on non-Plasma, non-Windows desktops, e.g. XFCE which has too simplified dialog. The solution is to force using Qt's own dialog (Bug #379190).
    • 72a91e6 Pixmap editor: fix display preview of pixmap value on mouse click
    • 4e4c1a6 Pixmap editor: improve size of the (...) button
