AbiWord 2.2 is out

by Volker Weber

AbiWord is a free and open source word processor available for a range of platforms. Amongst the new features in 2.2 is a native port to Mac OS X. The program has one very interesting feature for professional writers:

It lets you keep a running word count open while you type. When writing for print publications I need to make sure that the text will fit on a page. So I frequently check document properties to see how much space is left. I might give AbiWord a try just for this feature.

Excellent news! Last time I dealt with AbiWord I was trying (and failing) to build it for IRIX (I note that it now has been by the way).

Version 1.0.3? ;-)

Well, quite... IRIX has many fine virtues, but "hot n'happening" it isn't (any more) except in the most rarified sphere of 3D modelling of galactic gravitational systems, etc.

Alas, the disk image for 2.2.1 is not up yet. OSX users get directed to the 2.2.0 version.

The site has now been updated, and you should get re-directed to v2.2.1 downloads. Grabbing now...
