ANNOUNCE: gcalctool v5.21.1 (unstable).

Gcalctool is the default GNOME desktop calculator.

It has Basic, Advanced, Financial and Scientific modes. Internally it
uses multiple precision arithmetic to produce results to a high degree
of accuracy.

This release is for GNOME 2.21.1.

Thanks to Sami Pietila, Christian Persch and Robert Ancell for their
help with this release.

Robert is a new co-maintainer for gcalctool, and is actively converting
the code to use Glade. Hopefully this will make it easier to maintain
and eventually be a good candidate for helping to introduce new developers
to GNOME/Gtk+.

Changes since the last gcalctool version (5.21.0):

 * Work on bug #485919 - Use Glade for UI.
     > Adds support for the mode panel.
     > Puts menu accelerators back again and fixes the top button row in
       basic mode being too tall.
     > Now provides Glade support for the majority of the gcalctool GUI.

 * Fix for bug #490701 - base radio buttons initially fail.

 * Attempted fix for bug #485134 - OR calculation produces incorrect
   result in arithmetic precedence mode. This isn't a complete solution
   so the bug has been reopened.

 * Fix for bug #488828 - Reciprocal remembers backspaced items.

* More work on bug ##488694 - [a11y] Several calculator buttons don't speak correctly with Orca. Removed the accessible descriptions (not needed) and
   adjusted the "shift left" and "shift right" names (they were reversed).

 * Patch to stablize arithmetic precedence.

 * Stop acting on toggle events from radio buttons when they go inactive
   (Bug #485918).

 * Added Robert Ancell to the list of gcalctool MAINTAINERS.

 * Fixed bug #488830 - Hex radio button shortcut conflicts with Help menu

 * Fixed bug #488829 - Accuracy and Change Sign have wrong tooltip shortcut

 * Fixed bug #488783 - memory registers not available if you start in
   Advanced mode

 * Fixed bug bug #488694 - [a11y] Several calculator buttons don't speak
   correctly with Orca.

 * Fix for bug #485398 - Put memory register window inside the main window.
   Uses gtk_window_set_transient_for() to associate the memory register
   window with the main gcalctool window.

 * Fix for bug #383850 - [doc] New names for Precedence.

 * Fix for bug #485137 - Undo/Redo don't work in arithmetic precedence mode
   if user has "hand edited" the display.

 * Added a call to "set_memory_toggle(v->rstate);" in make_frames() to
   correctly set the state of the Edit-<Memory Registers check box if the
   user wanted the memory registers initially displayed.

 * Correctly handle memory register display and "Memory Registers" menu
   item checkbox status when user goes from Sci/Fin/Adv mode to Basic.
   (Needed because of the recent changes for bug #478961).
