Re: gnumeric XML incompatibilities

  I didn't follow the gnumeric file format evolution in the last year,
and I'm not the best person to ask.

  It seems that the best is probably to recompile a (static ?)
version of 0.61 which would run on Red Hat 6.2 .

Sorry to bother you, but I have a bit of a dilemma.  Due to
circumstances beyond my control, I find myself having to integrate a
RedHat 7.1 system with a RedHat 6.2 system.  The RedHat 6.2 system uses
version 0.48 of gnumeric while RedHat 7.1 uses version 0.61.  I have
found that gnumeric XML files created by version 0.61 cannot be read by
version 0.48.  Version 0.61 can read version 0.48 XML files (with some
font discrepancies), but as soon as the file is saved, it is again
unreadable by version 0.48.  I have tried to compile version 0.61 on the
RedHat 6.2 system, and version 0.48 on the RedHat 7.1 system; both
options require major restructuring of libraries -- more than I am
willing to do for a simple file discrepancy.  Is there some way to get
version 0.61 to write XML files that are readable by version 0.48?

Thanks for your help.
