Abiword for Windows has not been updated since Oct-2010, due to lack of Windows developers.

Abiword for LINUX is well maintained

Not reliable

about AbiWord and LibreOffice - Writer · ·

I tried to make a large document with this. Very unreliable. Some images never stay in the same place and aspect ratio after saving and opening, and it crashes so often (without autosave!) that in the end I had to open the file with LibreOffice (which fortunately has .abw support) just to be able to continue working.

Can pull some gnome dependencies (printing is based on libgnomeprint, for example.) Compile yourself to avoid them
