AbiWord v2.4.2 Released

The AbiWord team is happy to announce AbiWord v2.4.2. This release fixes quite a number of little bugs and contains a lot of general cleanup work. The most notable change is the addition of an OpenDocument exporter, completing the round-trip support for the OpenDocument file format.

The changes from v2.4.1 to v2.4.2 include, amongst others:

  • Added an OpenDocument exporter, and substantially updated the OpenDocument importer
  • Greatly improved the print quality of images (Unix)
  • Fixed a substantial number of memory leaks
  • The full Changelog can be found here.

    At the moment only installation packages for Windows are available for download. We hope to add installers for Linux and Mac OSX soon.

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

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