The AbiWord on my hard drive is now an embeddable bonobo control.
This means that abiword can now be used as an in-line viewer in Nautilus
and Evolution for all our supported formats (Word, RTF, Word Perfect,
AbiWord and lots of other documents). In addition the control provides a
completely editable interface into abiword document. You can click in a
document and type and change stuff.
The control will pop-up dialogs and context menu's though this needs more
work. So Gnome now has an embeddable word processor which can be used in
any application that would like it.
I would love to commit this code. I've verified that AbiWord still runs
fine as a stand alone word processor - but it can wait till after 1.0. I
need to understand a bit more about "official" IDL naming which is quite
important for a platform-wide distribution.
Anyway as a teaser, here is a screen shot, the IDL definition used by OAF
and a test-container to demonstarte how easy it is to use the control.
