Gnumeric 1.2.13
Posted on: 07/03/2004 09:39 AM

Gnumeric 1.2.13 is now available

This is a medium priority release. We finally seem to have fixed the xls export issues around sheet local names and dealt with text overflow for really large workbooks. Andreas chipped in with some LaTeX export fixes and patches for printing problems. While we were playing with Glynn's film game we noticed a problem at the bottom of some of the pictures. Morten found the missing 8 bytes and the jpgs look clear now.

This release also has a few nifty features backported. Most importantly, it includes the last of the implicit iteration support for operators. We now support (as far as I know) all of Ms Excel's evaluation techniques. Bring on your favourite array-expressions please. I'd like to hear about any failures. While we were in there I threw in a low risk patch to import gradients from xls.

New development is continuing in HEAD based on gtk-2.4
