"This week saw more significant development, with 12 developers contributing 27 different patches to the tree. Sadly, there were no new developers this week."

"The most significant series of patches this week came from Bill Carpenter, who continued to make significant progress towards Smart Quote support in AbiWord. This week, his work included fixing a few minor problems in his remapGlyph code, and adding a Smart Quotes preference item. This preference item was then ported to both Win32 and QNX by Tom and Thomas. For his work this week, Bill wins the Patch Prize, and 299 dollars from Sourcegear."

"Another significant feature added this week was automatic backup on crashes in the Unix build, thanks to Sam. Now, if AbiWord ever crashes, it will back up your data before dying. Bruce and Matthew contributed ideas for improving the code, which were quickly incorporated. Hopefully this will lead both to regular backup possibilites, and crash handling on our other platforms."
