Jeremy Davis has the most up to date AbiWord builds for windows.
If you look at the latest nightly head builds there is a
development version which has experimental table
support. It isn't stable yet. Tables are eventually going to happen
for the stable branch. AbiWord is very unique open source
program because it supports very many languages and
operating systems. It is very nice MS Word clone without
the bloat and with the basic WP features in a user friendly
and familiar GUI. I hope that the latest development build is
less prone for crashing.
