Subject: Gnumeric Release

Gnumeric 0.64 aka 'Do the Bartman' is now available.  This is a release
candidate for Gnome 1.4.  It fixes one memory problem and improves the plugin
architecture.  Almer also solved an old request for the scrollbar to
do live and delayed scrolling.  All other changes are largely
cosmetic polishing and improving corner cases.

Note to packagers : The version requirement for gnome-xml (libxml1) has increased
                    to 1.8.10

       official platform.  It is fairly stable but not yet the default build.
