AbiWord 2.7.3 Released

Filed under
Software

We just released AbiWord 2.7.3. The most visible addition to this release is the return of our Maemo support . Also AbiWord will now be able to gracefully handle and repair a bigger set of corrupt documents. Finally we fixed a bunch of crashers while working towards the next stable release.

The changes from v2.7.2 to v2.7.3 include, amongst others:

  • Fix an intermittent crash on exit with documents that contain many equations

  • Repair documents that contain invalid headers and footers
  • Make AbiWord work on Maemo again, and improve its interface for the small form factor
