Release 1.1 focuses on usability

Besides feedback from visualization of statistics analyzes, feedback
from using pyspread as a presentation tool has been taken into account.
Pre-releases of 1.1 have been successfully used for presentations with
up to 50 pages that include multiple videos.

New features

 * Video support (requires libvlc).
 * Spell checking (requires pyenchant).
 * Copy and paste of cell formats (only) via <Ctrl>+<Alt>+C and
   <Ctrl>+<Alt>+V . Copying formats has been decoupled from content in
   order to avoid unwanted side effects that can be experienced in
   current Office suites. 
 * <F6> fits the grid to the screen size if the grid is not too large.
 * OpenDocument Spreadsheet (ods) file open support (requires pyodf,
   only cell values, yet). 
 * Alpha blending option added to multiple chart types.

Usability improvements

 * New panel for table choice for better usability with poor mouse
 * The default UI language has been changed from system default to
 * The current row and column now is highlighted in the grid labels.
 * In fullscreen mode, arrow keys and space navigate through the tables.
 * The cell cursor is now hidden in fullscreen mode.
 * Changing preferences now refreshes the grid.
 * The cell editor is now closed and all changes are discarded when the
   table is switched.
 * The UI language can now be chosen from preferences dialog.
 * The default open and save filetypes can now be set in preferences
   dialog, which simplifies using pysu files via git.

Major bug fixes

 * Unmerging cells no longer leads to strange side effects.
 * Cell attribute access is now faster if many tables are present.
 * The cell editor is now closed and all changes are discarded when the
   table is switched.
 * Xls file import made independent from screen resolution.
 * The current directory is now changed to the directory, so that
   relative file access is possible.
 * Concurrent saving operations fixed.

Known issues

 * Button cells and video cells may require two clicks instead of one.
 * Fonts in presentations may differ between platforms, which can cause
   undesirable differences line breaks.
 * ODS import is still very limited and does not cover cell formatting.
