The AbiWord team joyfully announces AbiWord v2.7.8, the 9th snapshot of the development series 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 v2.7.7 to v2.7.8 include, amongst others:

  • Improved the fidelity of OpenDocument importing and exporting
  • Improved the Office Open XML filter by adding support for page breaks, text highlighting, columns, table styles and more
