Hello guys,

New version of Gnumeric is out:

  • Availability:

    ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnumeric

  • Changes and new features:
    • Cell ranges will work properly if they are not in their natural
      order (fixes the bug reported about SUM (C1:A1) not working and a
      whole range of similar problems).
    • CLEAN() function fixed.
    • New text exporting plugin from Takashi Matsuda.
    • We use gdk_fontset_load now to load fonts instead of
      gdk_font_load, this should make the code work for various
      international users (Takashi).
    • Entering data with XIM on the sheet should work now as well
      (Takashi).
    • Paste-by-value has been fixed by Takashi as well.
    • cell_set_format_from_style has been speeded up by Michael
      Meeks.
    • Excel importer no longer has static buffers (removes various
      problems reported by people) (Michael Meeks).
    • Excel importing code should be significantly faster and less
      verbose now (Michael Meeks).

Miguel.
