Thanks to awesome work from a whole collection of people in the AbiWord team, the great folks at BetterBe.com and creative genius types at lemon8.nl, AbiWord-2.8 is released together with a totally revamped http://abicollab.net. This website tightly integrates with AbiWord-2.8 and enables easy real-time document editing, stores documents online, allows easy document sharing with your friends, and performs format conversions on the fly.
Think google docs but with a real Word-Processor not an application in a web-browser.
Special congrats to my long-time friend and partner in-crime, Marc Maurer, aka uwog, who worked day and night, many many nights, to pull all this together.
