AbiWord v2.4.6 Released

The AbiWord team is happy to announce the availability of AbiWord v2.4.6. This release is a bugfix release only, which fixes quite a number of nuisances.

The changes from v2.4.5 to v2.4.6 include, amongst others:

  • Fix IDEF vulnerabilities IDEF1613 and IDEF1614 in the MS Word import library wvWare
  • Fix a longstanding bug that made AbiWord crash on Windows when the WordPerfect plugin was installed
  • Massive updates to the OpenDocument, WML, XSL-FO and AbiCommand plugins
  • The full Changelog can be found here.

    Needless to say, all users are advised to upgrade

    Mac OSX and Linux installers should be available for download 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 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/.
