Here's the announcement:

From:   Jody Goldberg 
Subject:        Gnumeric 0.99.0 Release Candidate 1
Date:   16 Dec 2001 21:16:04 -0500      

Gnumeric 0.99.0 aka 'Release Candidate 1' is now available.

        This is a bug fix release.  Andreas (bless him) went to town and
        patched lots problems big and small.  Greg Leblanc was also hard at
        work tidying up the documentation build.

        If all goes smoothly Gnumeric 1.0.0 will appear in 1 week.

        NOTE : The bug bounty still applies, if you are the first to find a
        repeatable crash, I'll give you a beverage of choice.  The BEVERAGES
        file contains a list.

        PACKAGERS : Please note the version number format changed in
                preparation for release.
