AbiWord Weekly News (8/02/2000)
This week, we had 36 patches checked into the tree, from 13 different developers. This week, we had 3 new developers added to the CREDITS file. Congratulations to Owen and Goran, and belated congratulations to Dom.
This week's biggest series of patches came from Dom Lachowicz, who implemented almost all of the functions needed for binary Word export. While the export is not fully functional yet, and only enabled in debugging builds, great progress has been made, and we hope to see this feature complete in 1.0. This also ZAPs the binary Word exporter POW.
This week's other big series of patches came for Goran Thyni, whose patch to enable libxml support was committed. This had adverse consequences for some of our build enviroments, which necessitated several patches. Joaquin also committed some changes to reduce the complexity and size of the changes.
The third large patch this week was from Christopher Plymire, who implemented about 10 different dialogs on Be.
Other significant developments included:
Gnome-print dialog from Dom
On The List
This week's cool post award goes to Joaquin for his informative post on how to implement the new toolbar arrangement.
