AbiWord v2.9.2 Released!

The AbiWord team joyfully announces AbiWord v2.9.2, the third snapshot of the development that will lead to AbiWord 3.0.

This snapshot allows interested developers, testers and users a sneak preview into the future of AbiWord.

The changes from v2.9.1 to v2.9.2 include, amongst others:

  • Add double-buffering support for most of the drawing to reduce flickering
  • Implement SVG snapshots for components when possible
  • Port the GTK interface to GTK+3 (GTK+2 is still supported)
  • Support loading plugins in the Mac OSX port
  • Allow SPARQL Query execution on RDF metadata stored in documents

The full Changelog can be found here.

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

While we encourage people to try out the new snapshot, please be aware that is a development snapshot and is not expected to be stable in any sort of way.
