Kontact introduces a new level of desktop application integration based on the technologies of the KDE framework. It provides mail, organizer, contact and other components to deliver a solution for personal information management and groupware. Its first full-featured stable release is available since the beginning of 2004.
In addition to the integration on a technical level Kontact has also integrated the development communities forming a stronger and more productive community on a higher level. This nicely demonstrates the power of Free Software development.
