Welcome to issue 81 of the AbiWord Weekly News, sponsored by Red Hat.

A few new features this week (improved color support and multi-threaded document loading) as well as a slew of bug fixes, including many memory leak fixes. Also this week the AbiWord changes made by OEone were released.

Starting this week, I've added titles to the links in the Closed Bugs section, so you can see the Bug's summary string in the tooltip (supported by Mozilla and IE at least). Thanks to Hakon for suggesting that improvement. I could do the same for the Bug numbers mentioned in the CVS summaries, but instead of spending time on that, I encourage you to help QA the Bugs so they get Closed and show up in the section where I can automate the process.

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!
