Gnumeric 1.9.4 "Greased Weasel"

Free, Fast, Accurate -- Pick Any Three

The Gnumeric Team is pleased to announce the availability of Gnumeric
version 1.9.4.

This release is a development release with lots and lots of bug fixes.
Also, this version is considerably faster than previous versions in
three ways: (1) when dealing with spreadsheets containing large farms
of VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH calls over the same database, we now
pre-process the database range once and the actual lookups are very
fast; (2) we now only calculate the relevant branch of IF calls,
unless implicit iteration is in effect; (3) large spreadsheets
containing many similar ranges like, for example, A$10:A10, A$10:A11,
..., A$10:A9999 used to hit a degenerate case in our dependency

This release requires the concurrently released goffice 0.7.3. We also
recommend the new libgsf 1.4.11.

Attention packagers: goffice no longer depends on libgnome,
libgnomeui, and gnome-vfs. (To get the full benefit of this, make sure
libgsf is not compiled to require gnome-vfs and bonobo.)

Attention packagers: please do not ship goffice with equation enabled.
