Description of problem:
Abiword 2.0 beta (1.9.1) is supposed to have much better support for Wordperfect
files (via libwpd).  Wordperfect compatibility is one of the major reasons I use
Abiword (and detest open office, though it now does wpd through libwpd as well).

WPD compatibility needs to be included in RedHat 10 (or 9.1 or whatever Rawhide
will become next) in OO and Abiword via libwpd.

Thanks for listening to the rant.

(We are not Microsoft, we don't bait and switch.  Please, let me be compatible
with the few Windows systems I deal with.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
No steps to reproduce... Abiword just needs to be recompiled against libwpd (see
sourceforge) and libwpd be included.

Included in 1.99.2 as soon as it makes it through our build system.
Comment 2 Marc Maurer 2003-08-23 17:47:59 EDT
Just a status update: We (the abi team) are at AbiWord 1.99.4 now, and there is
still no plugin package in rawhide. Maybe there are problems building the plugin
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-08-23 18:11:49 EDT
The plugins are included in the main package instead of in a separate package
that either ends up being required by the main package or not necessarily always
being installed or available.  1.99.4 is on my list to get to, although I might
just wait for the next release at this point (since Dom was saying weekly
releases were the aim until 2.0)
