Did a 1.2.1 release to get the accumulated polish out into the world. Things are looking good. Only a couple of crash reports, lots of enhancement requests. Sleep has been at a premium with the new baby, so I've taken to doing the massive rename that we'll need to support libgnumeric during the 1.3 cycle. That's a nice simple, mindless exercise. Basicly s/Foo/GnmFoo/ everywhere. It's also a good chance to do some api review. We appear to have a new version of grandma-chema, grandma-lukeh. He's filed a swath of nice crisp bug reports to keep me honest. Having a good collection of bug reporters is tremendously valuable.

GNOME Print:

The main source of complaints and problems we're seeing in Gnumeric are related to printing. Chema just hasn't been interested in doing much maintenance in there for far too long. Out of desperation we're joining the maintainer team for the project. Hopefully, we can get things back onto an even keel.


Things have been busy since my daughter arrived 2 weeks ago. She's treating us nicely, and has been much easier to take care of (feed change repeat) now that we're not afraid of breaking her. Of course its never quite that easy. The first munchkin is still only two, and while he seems to really like her ('can I pat her head') he also has absolutely no notion of gentleness. So a statement like 'look at the little eyes' is usually done with a small finger jabbing towards the eyes :-)
