To be more exact,

1) While testing 12.04 (including Abiword), no critical bugs about
Abiword were reported
2) Downgrading to another Abiword release in a released Xubuntu version
is not possible; upgrading to 3.0 is possible via backports, if that
hits the repositories.
3) We can fix single bugs with SRU's, as long as somebody points us to
the bugs that are affecting the Abiword release in 12.04
