081108 abiword-plugins-2.6.4 & dependencies [VL 6.0]
« on: November 07, 2008, 10:26:51 pm »

I've packaged abiword-plugins which greatly expand the functionality of the AbiWord word processor, adding everything from the ability to read OpenOffice and WordPerfect files to a grammar checker and a thesaurus (English only).  I've also built a number of external plugins or applications that are required.
