A crossword puzzle game and editor for KDE.

It's based on KrossWordPuzzle[1] by Friedrich Pülz[2] (code from the last revision available on KDE svn[3]). The development has stopped since many years and the original author is unreachable (various attempts to contact him).
For these reasons we (Cilium[4] and me) had to fork it.

General aims of the project:
- maintain the codebase;
- simplify the code where possible aiming to port it to Qt5/KDE Frameworks 5;
- improve the user experience.

Currently the focus is on the solving part of the game (useful for more users).

You can contribute with:
- translations (currently available bs, cs, de, eo, es, et, fr, ga, gl, hu, it, mai, mr, nds, nl, pl, pt, pt_BR, sk, sv, tr, ug, uk);
- themes;
- crosswords;
- reporting online *.puz providers (even not-English ones);
- packages;
- ...

Comments are welcome.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
