Free, Fast, Accurate -- Pick Any Three!

The Gnumeric team is proud to announce the release of Gnumeric 1.7.9, a development release. This release requires the concurrently released Goffice 0.3.8, see below.

With this release we (well, Andreas) have switched from gnome-print to GtkPrint and in the process fixed a large number of bugs caused by gnome-print. Undoubtedly we have a new set of bugs caused by GtkPrint, but there is some hope that GtkPrint will be better maintained than gnome-print ever was. Note: gnome-print is still linked in via goffice, but this will change.

In addition, this release uses the GtkRecentManager to handle recently-used documents and should thus interact better with Gnome.

regression).
