This week continued to be busy, with 43 new patches, from 17 different developers, going into the tree. We have 5 new contribtors this week. Congratulations to Göran, Christopher, Karl, David and Allen.
This week's most significant patch was David Schmitter's online help, which provides access to our HTML help files from within AbiWord. This fixes the POW from June 21, the last outstanding POW. For this work, and for adding a feature needed for 1.0, David wins this week's $299 Patch Prize.
Also this week, Joaquin made several improvements in AbiWord toolbar handling. The toolbars have now been divided into several parts, and can be turned on or off individually. He also made several improvements to the GNOME toolbars. These changes allowed Martin to add new buttons for starting and stopping different kinds of lists.
The BeOS build made significant progess this week, as Christopher Plymire implemented both the Word Count and Insert Date and Time dialogs, as well as providing several build fixes for Be.
Thomas also made lots of progress on the QNX port, adding the Goto dialog and the Show/Hide Toolbars option.
Finally, lots of translations were updated this week, including Italian, Spanish and both varieties of Norwegian.
