Welcome to my sixth release of the word processor AbiWord! AbiWord is part of a larger project known as AbiSource, which was started by the SourceGear Corporation. The goal of the project was the development of a cross-platform, Open Source office suite beginning with AbiWord, the project's word processor. 1. New in this release ---------------------- * The program was linked with GTK+ 2.24.32. As a result, drag and drop now works among other things. Content and other things can now be moved with the mouse and much more. * The included Aspell catalogs in German and English for spell checking have been updated. * Various libraries have been updated: - libwpd-0.9.9: A library for reading and writing Corel WordPerfect(tm) documents. - libwps-0.2.10: A library for reading Microsoft Works word processor documents. - wv-1.2.9: Word Document Filter library and utilities. * The localization code has been revised. With the new features of AmiCygnix 1.6, AbiWord can now use all available languages. Languages like "Canadian English" were not possible before. New in 2.8.6 r3 --------------- * Because of a bug in the last package, charts could not be created or edited in Gnumeric tables. Fixed now. Thanks to Michael Kus! * Program relinked with the latest libraries. * Various minor optimizations New in 2.8.6 r2 --------------- * Keyboard layouts that do not conform to ISO-8859-1 standard (eg Polish or Greek keyboards) are now better supported. This includes support for dead keys. This version of AbiWord can be installed on AmiCygnix V1.2, but for a complete support of dead keys, the installation of AmiCygnix-Base V1.3 (or better) is mandatory! * "AbiWord" can now import pictures in SVG and XCF (Gimp) format. New in 2.8.6 r1 --------------- * New version 2.8.6 with many new features compared to the last version 2.6.2. * Gnumeric spreadsheets can now be embedded into an AbiWord document. You can load and edit existing spreadsheets or create new ones. Gnumeric 1.10.17 is integrated into AbiWord for this. You don't need to install the standalone package of Gnumeric! * With the new plugin "OpenXML" you can now load and save documents in .docx format (MS Word 2007+). * Compiled with GTK+ 2.24. * Several bugfixes. Discontinued features: ---------------------- * Scripts (AbiScriptHappy plug-in) * PDF loader (never worked) * AbiDash plug-in Features -------- AbiWord is a word processor with a lot of features: 1.
