It would be great to have Abiword 2.6 in Hardy.

Default Please update to version 2.6

2.4.6 is exceedingly old - released in November 2006. 2.6.0 contains a
lot of stability improvements, memory/performance improvements,
import/export enhancements, and so on. Including it (with the fixed bug
24195 to support ODF within the abiword package) in Hardy would be a
very important step for Hardy - by the end of the LTS period, 2.4.6 will
be 4.5 years old, with a better alternative available for just over 3
years.

Thank you for your consideration!

Just tossing in my 2 cents here:

2.6.0 has a number of visible changes, but the older version is unlikely
to have a significant ammount of support going into the future. This
means that, if any errors are observed with the 2.4.x series (eg: The
outstanding and very ugly bugs mentioned), it could become necessary for
Hardy to upgrade to 2.6 anyway or spend an unnecessary ammount of time
fiddling with patches. Changing major versions of included software
within one release is, of course, not really Ubuntu's way of doing
things. Thus, in the interest of having AbiWord kept reasonably well
supported, it would be sane to get the 2.6.x upgrade dealt with for
Hardy from the start.

Default Please update to version 2.6

2.4.x will have _no_ support going in to the future. Changes to the 2.4
tree stopped being made quite some time ago, due to the large number of
cleanups and improvements to the 2.6.x tree. 2.4.x has been closed for
some time, and AbiWord 2.6 is already in Fedora and SuSE. It would be
very shortsighted not to package 2.6 (properly, with the ODT plugin) in
Hardy.

A few more points to support the inclusion of abiword-2.6.0 in th
eupcoming Unbuntu release.

This is a major update. Asking for a changelog is insane. It has be in
excess of 100,000 LOC. There is no way anyone is going to be able to
review that.

We have fixed hundreds of bugs since 2.4.6 which have not and will not
be backported to 2.4.x. The 2.4.x series is dead as far as we're
concerned.

Our windows 2.6.0 release is now out in the wild. We have registered
over 300,000 downloads already. AbiWord-2.6.x will be included in
upcoming fedora, Mandriva and SUSE release.

AbiWord 2.6.x includes a brand new real-time collaborative editing
feature which allows Windows, fedora, SUSE and Mandriva users to
simultaneously edit their documents in real time. This feature has
received rave reviews on OLPC machines (where it is included as the
within the Write word processor). If Ubuntu does not include 2.6.x,
Ubuntu users will miss out on this exceptional new feature, while their
Windows friends can happily interoperate.

Debian Experimental does not yet have Abiword 2.6.0, either.

It looks like the Ubuntu source package unifies the 4 upstream packages
together into a single source package and builds multiple binary
packages from that source package. I am not entirely certain how that
would translate to updating the source package to build a testing
version of the package; if anyone is able/willing to do this, it'd be
possible to test it for inclusion into Hardy. It can always be
backported, though, and it probably will be once there is an available
Debian or Ubuntu source package.
