AbiWord Weekly News #89 by Jesper Skov

Welcome to issue 89 of the AbiWord Weekly News.

This week there have been some really long threads on the future development of AbiWord, primarily about the backend enhancements necessary for tables and improved rendering/i18n. Plans for the near term seem to be in place, and I suspect people have already started hacking.

As for AbiWord 1.0.0, there are still no Win32 binaries. But maybe it's not so bad, since a nasty undo bug was found and fixed this week. Hopefully AbiWord 1.0.1 binaries will be available in the not too distant future.

Finally, this week I've added two buttons at the end of the newsletter that will allow you to donate $0.10 for this issue of AWN, and/or a variable amount (hopefully somewhat bigger :) to AbiWord development. The payment happens via PayPal. I know some people have issues with PayPal, but it is the only payment form that makes sense for something like the $0.10 AWN contribution. So post your complaints on a postcard, please. Should you have ideas for how to improve AWN (and make you more likely to pay), please let me know :)
