AbiWord v2.4.1 Released

The AbiWord team is happy to announce AbiWord v2.4.1. Since the 2.4.0 release we have received a lot of great feedback from our users, which led to a number of useful bugreports as well. This is the first bugfixing releasing in the new stable 2.4 series to address some of those bugreports.

The changes from v2.4.0 to v2.4.1 include, amongst others:

  • CAN-2005-2972: Fix several stack-based buffer overflows in the RTF importer
  • Fix the BiDi direction in menu strings (Windows)
  • Fix various crashers related to Equation editing
  • The full Changelog can be found here.

    Because of the fixed security bug in the RTF importer, we strongly advise all users to upgrade to this latest release.

    Note to Mac OSX users: please aware that the font rendering in 2.4.1 is still a work-in-progress. Depending on the fonts used the quality of the rendering may be sub-optimal. We are working hard to address this issue.

    We are very much interested in any bug you may find. Please report these to http://bugzilla.abisource.com/.
