Pyspread 0.1 released
=====================

After a long and eventful Alpha period, pyspread has finally reached
Beta stage. I thank all contributors and testers who have helped
getting pyspread to this point.

About: 
------

Pyspread is a cross-platform Python spreadsheet application. It is
based on and written in the programming language Python.

Instead of spreadsheet formulas, Python expressions are entered into
the spreadsheet cells. Each expression returns a Python object that can
be accessed from other cells. These objects can represent anything
including lists or matrices. 

Stability and compatibility
---------------------------

Pyspread runs pretty stable in CPython. Please note that old save files
are not compatible. Load them in the old version and copy the code to a
new version of pyspread via the clipboard. Being in Beta means
increased code stability. Save files are now going to be downwards
compatible. However, major beta releases (e. g. 0.1 to 0.2) may still
break compatibility. Such a change may occur only after being announced
in the previous major beta release.

New features
------------

    * New macro editor dialog.
    * Macros can now contain any Python code.
    * Macros load and save files are now plain text files.
    * Macros are now saved within the pys-file.
    * Macros files are now signed and included in the trusted file
      concept.

Bug fixes
---------

    * Cells can now be correctly accessed with negative index (BUG
      2965144)
