AbiWord v2.4.4 Released

After a long wait, the AbiWord team is happy to announce the availability of AbiWord v2.4.4. This release is a bugfix release only. For those of you wondering about v2.4.3: it is basically the same as 2.4.4, except for some build issues that were fixed.

The changes from v2.4.2 to v2.4.4 include, amongst others:

  • Substantially updated the OpenDocument import and export filters
  • Lots of tweaks to the Windows interface
  • Various fixes to our Right-to-Left text handling routines
  • The full Changelog can be found here.

    Packages for Windows and Mac OSX are available for download from our site. Linux versions should be available soon from your favorite distribution package repository.

    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 as soon as possible, but since AbiWord is a 100% volunteer effort, we don't give any timeframe. Help is always appreciated though.

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