Gnumeric 1.2.1

**** Gnumeric 1.2.1 aka "Sleep is for woosie teenagers" is now available. ****

     This is mainly a spit and polish release. There are a few patches for
     problems in the charting engine, but the majority of the changes are
     small feature enhancements to finish loose ends, and prepare for
     branching. There were two notable changes though. One is a a new
     utility program 'ssconvert' that allows command line conversion of
     spreadsheets between all of the formats that Gnumeric supports. The
     second change is a warning to all 3rd party plugin developers that
     we've shattered binary compatibility by implementing the first part
     of the great renaming. During the 1.3.x development cycle we intend
     to produce a stand alone libgnumeric which requires that we get our
     name-spacing act together. It seems better to do that before we
     branch. Its also something I can do while suffering from sleep
