Gnumeric 1.12.3 aka "Ray's Release" is now available.

The Gnumeric Team is pleased to announce the availability of Gnumeric version 1.12.3. This release requires the concurrently released Goffice 0.10.3.

Noteworthy news in this release:

  • Handling of corrupted files: We thought we had this fairly well covered with our own infrastructure to manufacture corrupted files from valid ones, but Juha Kylmänen from Oulu University Secure Programming Group proved us wrong by supplying a large number of corrupted files for which we were crashing. Thanks!
  • Documentation updates
  • Linear regression now works reasonably when the source columns are linearly dependent.
  • New plot type: matrix plot

Ray Dassen Passed Away

The Gnumeric Team mourns the loss of Ray Dassen who recently passed away at the age of only 40 years.

In Gnumeric context we knew him as "JHM" and he was our liaison with the Debian project, taking care of builds and first-line bug report triage. He also took care of various janitorial tasks that an old project like Gnumeric accumulates. Ray contributed to the project for at least the past 12 years.

This release is dedicated to Ray. We miss you.
