Just some notes from a quick review of the installed binary packages...

Other than a few minor polish items, this series of packages seems to be
very fast and stable.  Someone who actually uses Abiword should check
them out, since they'll likely be able to do so in more depth than I can
cover, _but_, I can say this:  I would use Abiword for my next paper if
I had to use a word processor at all.

One thing I did notice:  “View→Presentation” says “TODO: This menu item
doesn't have a StatusMessage defined”.  Another thing that I noticed is
that when entering Unicode characters directly (e.g., using the GNOME
Ctrl+Shift+u entry method to input unicode characters) you cannot tell
that the code point being typed is actually the code point and not
normal text entry.  I don't know how that is handled by the application
(or not?) but when you do it in GNOME Terminal, for example, the code
point is underlined as you type it.  Otherwise, that functionality works
just fine.  Also, how does one get at the grammar checker so as to see
/why/ there is green text under a passage?  (Or is it intentionally not

To sum it up, though, the only issues that I noticed at all were issues
of tiny details which could use some polish.  It looks like a great
release, IMHO, and assuming that others think so, I think it should wind
up in Hardy.

Please update to version 2.6
