Yeah, I think that you're completely right. Abiword is starting to gain
a reputation of "slow project". I think that the developement is not at
all "slow", but the "two months between releases" gives this impression.

I don't want the gnumeric style of "that's the 0.40 version" and the
next day "that's the 0.41 version: Improvements: It compile." either,
but having a more regular release could give us good publicity.
