Release Digest: GNOME, January 21, 2004

Jan 22, 2004, 05:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Gnumeric 1.2

Gnumeric 1.2.5 aka "The french keep me honest" is now available.

A few mostly minor xls export issues, and some package cleanup. A small patch to add some missing includes fixes a crash in the ia64 build This package should also be alot more relaxed about the intltool version requirements. The Manual recalc redraw issue was quite interesting. Jean Brefort added bubble plot support, bringing us ever closer to complete coverage of the available XL formats.

New development is continuing in HEAD as we transition to GtkAction and work ever closer to a win32 build.
