AbiWord v2.2.8 Released

This release has seen a lot of bugfixes, polish, and cleanups as we are nearing the end of the 2.2 release cycle. We are working hard towards AbiWord v2.4, which is shaping up nicely.

This release is mostly a bugfix release, with some minor new features. The changes from 2.2.7 to 2.2.8 include, amongst others:

  • Make Text Folding actually work
  • Fix text justification on MacOSX
  • Initial support for the OpenDocument (.odt) file format
  • The full Changelog can be found here.

    All users are advised to upgrade to this new release. Windows users are advised to uninstall older versions first, and to make sure there are no files left behind[1].
