Gnumeric 1.1.16

Gnumeric 1.1.16 aka 'L M L W' is now available.

    A few long awaited improvements to the internals have finally landed.  This
    includes full support for Ms Excel's 1904 date convention.  If you don't
    know what it is consider yourself lucky.  Jon Kre stepped up and finished
    off the hyper-link dialog which makes that feature useful.  There was also a
    fair amount of testing for the xls exporter.  We can definitely handle
    files larger than 6.8Meg now (something gnumeric-1.0.x & libole2 could not).
    Also, at Daniel's behest our new xml import utilities can correctly handle
    namespaces, enough that a quick test wrapper for Ms Excel XP's xml format
    was simple.  Oddly, I actually prefer Excel's xml to OpenOffice.

    NOTE : Although this is a development release it should be quite
      stable.  There are is still feature regressions from 1.0
      (porting graphs to gtk2) but other than that this release should
      be usable.  Please play with it.

    NOTE : This release now relied on gnome-print-2.2.x

	* Support Mac Office style 1904 date convention.
	* Fix recalc problem with MMULT.
	* Bump libgsf req to 1.7.2
	* Fixed XL export (apologies to all)
	* Improve support for negative elapsed time formats.
	* Minor lotus-123 import issue.
	* Added Skeleton for importing MS Excel XML.
	* Changed default toolbar layout to icon only.

GStreamer 0.6.0 released

GStreamer "Hottest Pick" 0.6.0 released[*]

The GStreamer team is happy to announce our first ABI stable release
series. The 0.6.x series of the GStreamer streaming-media framework. 

At this point in time GStreamer is fully functional for creating
audio-based applications, as shown by applications such as
gnome-sound-recorder, Rhythmbox and nautilus-media. 

Video-based applications still have some issues at this point, but we
plan on solving those issues during the 0.6.x series in an ABI
compatible way.

We will also be releasing a development 0.7 release series, in which we
will work on such things as the remaining video issues and the
interactivity support which is needed for DVD menus and SWF (Flash).
This means developers working on apps needing these services can use the
0.7 series for development and then enable 0.6 support as these
additions optionally get backported to 0.6 once they are stable and work

Thread issues and GStreamer
Many of GStreamer's features relies heavily on threads. Unfortunately
everything is not rosy in the Linux world of threads. If you have a
glibc version installed compiled with i686 optimizations (which uses a
different codepath than standard i386 glibc), there is a good chance you
will experience thread-related crashes in gstreamer-based applications.
There are a few workarounds to this available.

      * You can use an i386 glibc package instead. (Since this is the
