This week was fairly slow for AbiWord development, with only 8 new patches in the tree, by 6 different authors.
The most significant patch this week was from Thomas Briggs, who added Windows Word Count, fixed Insert Symbol on Windows, and allowed keyboard input to modeless dialogs on Windows. He followed this up with a one line fix for a minor bug discovered by Paul Egli. For his work on this, Thomas wins this week's Sourcegear Patch Prize. Congratulations.
Another big patch this week came from Sam, who implemented an alpha version of page numbering. Unfortunately, the display does not work properly yet, due to what seems to be a formatter problem that had previously been undiscovered. Later, he added some improvements to his code, but didn't fix any of the major bugs.
Finally, Bill Carpenter added another significant Smart Quotes improvement, which this time allowed the display, rather than just the recognition of these characters. Martin Vermeer improved Latin-1 character handling in LATEX output. Anders Melchiorsen improved the look of the Find/Replace dialog. And Justin reduced unnecessary dialog display.
