Marc released AbiWord 2.7.3 this week-end. I used the release to update the packages from Maemo since I fixed many of the issues that were filed against it. It should appear in the tablet's Application Manager if you have the extras-devel repository.

Note: there won't be any update to 2.6.x, as 2.7.3 should already be much better. Only Maemo 4.x is supported (only tested on 4.1 aka Diablo on a N800).

Update: if you don't have the extras-devel repository, you can install it. Diablo (4.1)

Update 2: and please, DO file bugs.
