Happy 1st week Amélie!

Sun, 03 Jun 2012 19:32:45 +0000

A very happy first week to my baby daughter Amélie! She was born last Sunday, May 27th, and she and her lovely mother are doing very well. During the day she is total cuteness, rainbows and unicorns, while at night she turns into a hungry monster! A cute monster, but still… :P Welcome to this world [...]

Improving complex language support in AbiWord

Fri, 16 Apr 2010 12:10:32 +0000

I’ve spent the last week or so learning enough about complex languages to be able to fix a bunch of complex text related bugs in AbiWord. First of all our cursor movement was broken as we didn’t respect text cluster boundaries. The same was true for deleting or backspacing through text clusters. I found an [...]

I spot a brown paper bag

Thu, 29 Oct 2009 19:31:03 +0000

The AbiWord 2.8.0 Windows release was fine, but the Linux one contained an annoying bug leading to random crashes. This lead me to release AbiWord 2.8.1 and fire our entire QA team. If you use AbiWord 2.8.0 on Windows, then you are perfectly up to date and don’t need this release. Linux/FreeBSD/Hurd/etc. packagers and people [...]

AbiWord 2.7.8 out

Sat, 01 Aug 2009 23:29:22 +0000

I hope we will only have to do 1 more development release after this one, before we can release AbiWord 2.8.0. Already looking forward to it. In the meantime, you’ll have to be happy with AbiWord 2.7.8! [ Release Notes | ChangeLog | Download ]

Errare humanum est…

Fri, 17 Jul 2009 23:13:33 +0000

… which means we needed another development release (and another one will soon follow :). Therefor we just released AbiWord 2.7.7, which contains a bunch of cleanup work, and a totally revamped Mac OS X renderer based on our Linux Cairo+Pango renderer. The renderers actually share most of the code now, where they used to [...]

Impressive AbiWord release

Sat, 04 Jul 2009 22:19:44 +0000

We just released AbiWord 2.7.6, which is an awesome release in my opinion! It for example adds native JPEG support, so we don’t convert every JPEG internally to PNG anymore. This will be of great benefit on the OLPC laptop, where kids use built-in camera to produce photos in JPEG format and add them to their [...]

AbiWord 2.7.5 Released!

Sat, 20 Jun 2009 20:26:49 +0000

This is starting to get boring, as I’m turning the planets into freshmeat. But let’s just pretend we have some actual users that care about this news: there is another AbiWord release! With improved printing support (landscape printing actually works again, how 1992!), working copy/paste on Windows, and improved OpenDocument support, this seems like a [...]

I have a release addiction
