Congratulations. I looked, and did not find 1.0 binaries

make the .deb package, or do it myself. Umph, That
is not a bad idea. I'll take a stab at that after this week.)

Unfortunately, the project failed repeatedly to reach Version 1.
Nonetheless, AbiWord is proud of its ancestor and dedicates the release
of Version 1 to the memory of all those ancient developers who gave
their lives to the pursuit of free speech, warmth, and caves.
