Gnumeric 1.9.8 aka "TBD" is now available.

The Gnumeric Team is pleased to announce the availability of Gnumeric version 1.9.8. This release requires the concurrently released goffice 0.7.7 and libgsf 1.14.14.

This is a bugfix release. The most notable ones are:

  • ODF import and export was improved
  • Sheet objects (such as widgets) got some much needed TLC

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.
