Yeah, but Fedora is dumping abiword (and koffice and gnumeric) so that they can include more Java s/w such as Eclipse and OOo 2.
Do note, though, that "dumping" in this case means that they're moving those programs to Extras, not getting rid of them completely. And since FC4 is supposed to come with Extras pre-configured and ready with the main release, that means that adding Abiword, Koffice, and Gnumeric can be as simple as "yum install abiword koffice gnumeric". Not as nice as having them included on the install disks, but not a terrible ordeal, either.
