Abiword 2.7.0 released!

Abiword 2.7.0 was released yesterday!
Download it here.

Abiword 2.6.6 is the supported version for Ubuntu jaunty.
Download it here.

But feel free to try this debian packaging, if you prefer Abiword 2.6.8, and ready to install dependencies yourself.

An interview with the Abiword team after the Abiword 2.6 release can be found here.

A comparison of the open source word processors, OOo Writer, AbiWord, and KWord can be found here. However it could mostly be outdated by this time.

Apart from this, you may always prefer to check out gsoc2009unicode branch, which will be my branch for this gsoc - Porting Abiword Windows to Unicode.
I will use cross-building for my project.
Windows dependencies can now be found here too.

Initial discussions on this topic, by Jordi Mas, can be found here.
