Gnumeric 1.3.91

Gnumeric 1.3.91 aka "I Object" is now available.

    I would have liked to characterise this as just stabilisation release, but
    there is more in here than bug fixes. Yaacov Zamir and Morten cleared out
    lots of old code and synced the cell printing to use the same pango
    generation we used for display. While that was going on Emmanuel added some
    nice eye candy to the plots, grid lines. I was surprised by how much they
    add to the charts. The docs are also shaping up nicely. Adrian could
    probably use some editorial/proofreading help folks. In the background
    JonKare has been tidying lots of lose ends, even fixing the CORBA plugin a
    bit, that code hasn't seen the light of day since the dawn of time.

    We are not quite ready to re-introduce the bug beverages, but it is close.
    Please test this release. 1.4 is due later this month with the rest of
    gnome-office. Report the bugs now please. If you are going gold before 1.4
    comes out this release could be shippable. There are now sufficiently many
    improvements and fixes in 1.3.x that are not in 1.2 that we have passed the
    tipping point.
