GNOME: Gnumeric 0.66 available (with Bonobo as default)

Subject: Gnumeric 0.66 available (with Bonobo as default)
Date: Wed, 27 Jun 2001 00:36:09 -0400

Gnumeric 0.66 aka 'thank you sir may I have another' is now available.

Note to packagers : The Bonobo enabled build is now the default.  You WILL need
        to change your packaging to reflect changes in paths and to add
        Bonobo-1.0x as a depend.

This is a _development_ release.  Although the code is stable, packages will
definitely need work to cope with the switch to Bonobo.  It is possible to
build without Bonobo (--without-bonobo), and will continue to be
possible for the foreseeable future.

Once the packages are up to date you will want to update to get fixes for
    - text exporting that was accidentally disabled in 0.65
    - array formulas that were also disabled in 0.65
