Time for some status

Gnumeric
1.2.12 has been released. I strongly suggest that people update. There are several significant bug fixes in the xls exporter that would crash MS Excel. There is also a libgsf release (1.9.0) to fix infrequent corruption in the gzip/bzip2 outputs, and to fix gnome-vfs support.
Development in Gnumeric head is progressing nicely. Rich text support is mostly done (xls in/out and editing) all that's missing is .gnumeric in/out (trivial) and OOo in (also simple). A win32 port is now technically feasible, build gnumeric --without-gnome and nothing above the gtk+ level is required. As soon as dropline begins shipping gtk+-2.4.1 packages I'd like to see a test build. It's still a bit rough around the edges, the gconf wrappers are unfinished, and libgnomeprint* on win32 is untried, but it is possible. If you are a Tor wannabe we could use some help. libgoffice is moving along slowly. My tree now has GODoc and GODocControl which give us a place to hang all of the importer/export and plugin logic as it moves down.

GnomePrint

I've got smb browsing for the gnome-cups-add-printer dialog and have started work on a command line interface to libgnomeprint modeled on xpp. There have been several interesting contributions to support font subsetting for pdf and ps2 backends.

Awakened around 2 by the wee lad arriving in our bed. Remained awake due to irregular kicks to various bits of anatomy until the wee lad left to watch Dora the Explora around 6:30.

Have spent the last few days wading through all of the important control-centre bugs. What a depressing mess. Things are getting marginally better, but there is still a huge amount of ugliness. Mime types are just a mess. On a less depressing note the printer working groups are moving quickly. The papi interfaces are pretty nice. The current sample implementation is still a cups wrapper (rather than pure ipp) but at least we could fix some of the more egregious aspects of cups under the covers.

My gnumeric tree compiles again, and we're stripped down to only gconf as the only hard depend above gtk. The text exporter is prettier without GnomeDruid, and seth's input on the switch from GtkClist -> TreeView. As a bonus to those of you interested in the charting engine I've had to replace GnomeAbout with something more portable. That was all the instigation necessary to try an exercise the charting engine with a more convential use case, and put some animated plots into the about box. That should help sand off the rough edges to the api.

SamuraiMike's radar plot implementation will go in shortly too, which leaves us with just a few more plot types (surface and some of the stock types) necessary before we have full coverage.

1.2.6 will get announced shortly, it's hard to be motivated with all the recent medical trouble in the family.

Today was a good day.

  • The heat is back on. Yay!
  • The #%!@# file type capplet understands icon themes
  • We have not one but two web monkeys preparing to spruce up the gnome-office web site. We're just doing a run off now t o decide between this one or this one.

Hmm, apparently it's kinda cold out there.

Our furnace cut out early Friday morning. It was a balmy +1C outside that night so sleep was snuggly. By morning the house was a tad chilly. Thankfully the service folk came by quickly to have a look and replaced a control board. In technical terms is was apparently 'rather confused'. Unfortunately the source of the confusion appears to have been a leak in an overflow tube which is conveniently placed directly above the confused hardware. The damn think shut down again a few hours later :-p We bundled kids off to my folks for the night, and got everyone settled in then returned home to keep the pipes from freezing up. I'll light a fire (in the fireplace for those of you with insurance fraud on your minds). There are a few old baseboard heaters around to test out too.

/me sacrifices a bottle of wd-40 and a new air filter to the furnace diety
Then prays fervently that we can avoid something like this

Finally had a chance to do some gnumeric hacking last night and solved the XL crashing on exported macros problem. Released 1.2.6 (or at least did a tarball for release tonight) with that patch and a pile of fixes for labels in the charting engine.

Work continues in HEAD towards a fully gnome-optional build. We'll still use all the nifty toys if they are available (gnome-vfs, gconf etc) but we can scale back to gtk only if necessary for win32.
