From the AbiWord Weekly News #163, the developers are still looking for a maintainer of the BeOS version of the text editor:
"If there is no one to fully maintain the BeOS port in the next week, it will be removed from the development tree. This means there will be NO MORE AbiWord for BeOS. Last call! Anyone?"
