Author: JT Smith

Jody Goldberg announces the latest version of Gnumeric (0.68) and the latest addition to the Goldberg family (no version number announced).

    Conversant in C/C++ but requires a drool proof keyboard.


Gnumeric 0.68 aka 'the ice pane cometh' is now available.

This is a _development_ release.  There are several fixes for problems 
previous releases (some serious) however this release also adds support 
frozen panes which required some non-trivial adjustments.  We did more
usability tuning so scrolling should now feel smoother.  Thanks to 
UnNamed, jwz, and acuster for their suggestions.

There are known limitations to this release.  Most importantly frozen 
will only show sheet objects in the lower right pane.
