Back from LUDEX where Abiword got invited to join the UKLinux.net sponsored .org village. It was really interesting. The first time we met users, and real users, not just geeks. I also met Tomas Frydrych, our BiDi expert, who was time-sharing the stand. I wish I could stay in London a little longer.

I have been hacking on the RTF importer, fixing some bugs and implementing new features. I should clear up all the RTF import bugs.

Abiword 2.1.2 has been tagged and released, thanks to uwog. I released MacOS X binaries in the mean time. Should be more stable and have dynamic menus working. Still a few major issues to sort out.

Tomorrow I'm heading Paris, near Disneyland Paris, for Libr'east where I'll give a talk about Abiword. I'll also go to Qu├ębec immigration service in Paris to give them the whole file for the temporary worker visa application as well as the required CAD (in cash). I wrote the slides for the talk on Wednesday morning in the hotel room after waking up at 5:00 AM. I could not find sleep any more.
