A lot of good stuff happened lately. First of all, I released libwpd 0.7.0, which is a great improvement over the previous version. Being able to import WP5.x type documents seems to be a great hit :-) The plugin for AbiWord is already updated, as is wpd2sxw. Progress on the "WriterFilter", the plugin for OpenOffice, is progressing slowly as well, and a few success stories have already been reported on *nix.

On a very related front, I will have some very interesting things to report soonish I hope. Stay tuned if you are interested in everything that has to do with converting WP documents in *all their glory*.

Furthermore, I'm in the progress of releasing AbiWord 2.0.3, which will solves quite a few nagging bugs that made AbiWord quite unusable for a lot of people, such as Copy&Paste errors, and frequent crashes related to FootNotes. Hope this release makes everyone happy :-)
