General highlight: focus of the 3.2 release has been put on improving stability of KEXI and KEXI frameworks, KDb, KProperty, KReport. API of these frameworks is backward compatible with the 3.1.0 version. It is also is guaranteed to be stable until the 4.0.0 release.

Since the 3.1.0 release KEXI and the frameworks received over ?????????? improvements and bug fixes.

Documentation of the frameworks has also improved and is available at, although tutorials and reference have to be added in coming releases. KEXI user's manual is outdated as it covers older versions 2.x. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

KEXI 3.2.x depends on the KEXI frameworks in version 3.2.x or newer. It may or may not work with older versions. Just like the KDE Frameworks, we recommend to upgrade all the KEXI frameworks to the same version.
