AbiWord v2.7.2 Released

The AbiWord team joyfully announces AbiWord v2.7.2, the third snapshot of the development that will lead to AbiWord 2.8.

This snapshot allows interested developers, testers and users a sneak preview into the future of AbiWord.

The changes from v2.7.1 to v2.7.2 include, amongst others:

  • Add support for uppercase, lowercase, and capitalized character styles (text transforms; no user-interface for it yet)
  • Merge the abiword-extras module back into abiword, and add --enable-clipart and --enable-templates build options
  • Create a new MSVC2008 build system to make the Windows release
  • The full Changelog can be found here.

    We are very much interested in any bug you may find. Please report these to http://bugzilla.abisource.com/.

    While we encourage people to try out the new snapshot, please be aware that is a development snapshot and is not expected to be stable in any sort of way.
