AbiWord v2.0.8 Released

While we were fairly confident that AbiWord v2.0.7 was rock solid, it
appeared the rock had some previously unseen cracks hidden beneath the
surface. Our precious rock is all firmly glued together again now and
won't fall apart. We promise.

This release is a bugfix release only. The changes from 2.0.7 to 2.0.8
include, amongst others:

* A great number of fixes to the Windows frontend
* Fixed quite a few (table related) crashers
* Buffer overflow fixed in the Microsoft Word importer
* Several build fixes, and gcc 3.4 compatibility fixes

The full ChangeLog can be found at We strongly encourage
all users to upgrade to this latest stable release.

While AbiWord v2.0.8 is stable and ready for production use, you might
run into a previously unknown bug. If so, we'd really appreciate it if
you would take some time to file a report in our bug database at
