Thansk to Konrad (once again) for pointing me in the right direction for this one.

It seems the Abiword port is no longer on "life support" as was mentioned in a previous Abiword weekly news. In their latest issue they mention that the BeOS is back on track, they had a few offers to maintain it. However, no code has been commited yet. I'm sure they'll get busy soon.

Good news indeed. I wonder if a certain gentleman is involved in this... you know who you are.
