  Welcome to my ninth release of Gnumeric for AmiCygnix/AmigaOS4.
  Gnumeric is a spreadsheet, which is in many points as powerful as the leader
  in this category "Excel".

1. New in this release

  * Due to another error in the installer script of Release 6, the installation
    was aborted when the desktop icon was set. Error has been eliminated.

2. New in 1.10.17 r6

  * Due to an error in the installer script, possibly installed Aspell catalogs
    in German and English were deleted. Has now been fixed.

    Unfortunately, a new bug was built in, so this release was replaced again.

3. New in 1.10.17 r5

  * The program was linked with GTK+ 2.24.32. As a result, drag and drop now
    works among other things. Content and other things can now be moved with
    the mouse and much more.

  * New release 5 of the Python package v2.7.2 with GTK+ 2.24.32.

4. New in 1.10.17 r4

  * Because of a bug in the last package, charts could not be created or edited.
    Fixed now. Thanks to Michael Kus!

  * Program relinked with the latest libraries.

  * Various minor optimizations

5. New in 1.10.17 r1, r2 and r3

  * Solved a problem in the installer script, which prevented the update of the
    first release.

  * New version 1.10.17
    (Changes see file "Cygnix:Software/Gnumeric-1.10.17/NEWS")

  * Compiled for GTK+ 2.24

  * New python package version 2.7.2

  * Keyboard layouts that do not conform to ISO-8859-1 standard (eg Polish or
    Greek keyboards) are now better supported.

    This includes support for dead keys. For a complete support of dead keys,
    the installation of AmiCygnix 1.3 (or better) is mandatory!

  * "Gnumeric" can now import pictures in XCF (Gimp) format.

7. The python package

  The python plug-ins do require a special version of the python interpreter
  compiled for AmiCygnix. A python package version 2.6.2 is included in this
  archive and will be installed while installation of this package.

  These third party python modules are compiled in:

  * Imaging 1.1.6 (PIL)
  * pygimp 2.6.11
  * pygtk 2.24.0
  * pygtkunixprint
  * pyatk 1.30.0
  * pypango 1.24.5
  * pypangocairo
  * pyglade 2.6.4
  * pycairo 1.8.4 (uses Cairo 1.10.2)
  * pygobject 2.28.6
  * pygsf 1.14.21
  * pylibxml2 2.6.19
  * sqlite3 3.3.13

  With this python package you can also run scripts, which depend on pyGTK.
  You can find some examples in the directory "Cygnix:Software/Python-2.7.2".

  Interesting demos:

  * Cygnix:Software/Python-2.7.2/pyGTK/Start_pygtk-demo_Desktop.bat or

    Opens a window with many GTK+ examples including code.

  * Cygnix:Software/Python-2.7.2/pyGTK/Start_pyide_Desktop.bat or

    Opens a python console for testing python commands.

  * Cygnix:Software/Python-2.7.2/pyCairo/Start_snippets_gtk_Desktop.bat or

    Shows a window with many examples for the cairo graphics library.

8. How to install python plug-ins

  Like normal plug-ins, python plug-ins are stored into the directory
  "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/lib/gnumeric/1.10.17/plugins". They are automatically
  activated on start up.

  Unfortunately there are no third party plug-ins available.

9. How to write your own python plug-in

  Unfortunately there is no detailed documentation available. Here is a link
  to the official documentation:


10. Known problems

  * The online help system is not working.

  * The background pattern of the objects can not be changed.

  * Drag & drop does not work.

  * The linear solver "lp_solve" is not included in the package, only the
    linear solver "GLPK". Support for external solvers is working, but not
    intensively tested.
    Please copy available binaries of "lp_solve" to "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/bin".

11. Installation

  The X11 environment AmiCygnix version 1.6 (or higher) must be installed
  before! AmiCygnix is available on OS4-depot (http://os4depot.net).

  To install the package, just click on the install icon. The data will be
  installed into the AmiCygnix package. Afterwards you can find the programs in
  "Cygnix:Software/Gnumeric-1.10.17". To launch the program doubleclick on
  "Start_Gnumeric_Desktop.bat" or "Start_Gnumeric_Standalone.bat".
