(Other stories by Sam TH)
"This was the slowest week for development since the beginning of the AbiWord Weekly News. Only five patches were checked in, from four developers. There were no new developers this week."
"This week's only big patch was from Bruce, who implemented the Tabs dialog on Windows, and updated the Unix and XP versions to be compatible. Unfortunately, this dialog proved to be rather buggy, as is to be expected with such new code. Bruce also fixed a problem with the Zoom selector on the Win32 toolbar."
"The major reason for the lack of apparent development was the hopefully imminent release of 0.7.11, whose cause was helped by a few patches for BeOS from Stephane. Problems appear to currently on BeOS and Solaris."
"Another reason for the slowness of development this week was an extended outage of the abisource.com website, caused by some careless work with a backhoe in the vicinity of the SourceGear offices."
