AbiWord Weekly News #79, (2001, week 3, released 2002.01.21)
Welcome to issue 79 of the AbiWord Weekly News, sponsored by Red Hat.
This week (as leaked in last issue) AbiWord 0.99.1 was tagged, and we're still in the release process. Hopefully there'll be a public announcement during next week. This week there's also been a lot of Bugs fixed and a few feature enhancements/completions.
Starting with this issue, AbiWord Weekly News is sponsored by Red Hat. This means that I'm allowed to write AWN during work hours, which should allow me to spend (more) time on Bug fixing and other AbiWord related work in my own time. Due to this sponsorship, I'm moving the release of AWN to Mondays, each issue covering the week before (Monday-Sunday).
The Bug count in the QA To Verify category is climbing. Please help us close them by downloading the 0.99.1 release and verify that the problems have been fixed. Some AbiWord 0.99.1 binaries are already available now at http://sourceforge.net/projects/abiword.
Also, if you want to help with the QA process during the 0.99.x cycle, you can find nightly builds for Windows here: http://www.darklogic.org/abiword/ and less frequent (but more stable builds) here: http://www.niksbiks.dk/Abi/. For Linux/GNOME you can find nightly builds here: http://pinohuis.dhs.org:8081/. Thanks!
