Please update goffice to 0.4 branch
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
Would it be possible to update goffice to 0.4 branch? 0.4.0 was just released
and it is required for 0.8 branches of gnome-chemistry-utils and gchempaint
which will be released next week. I know we are at devel freeze right now, but
once it is over, would you mind updating rawhide and f7? Apart from gchemutils,
packages dependent on goffice are abiword and gnumeric. I don't know if they
will work with the new branch with just a rebuild, or will some additional work
I'm the gnumeric maintainer myself, adding the abiword maintainer to the CC.
<uwog> can you see if abiword will work with the new goffice?
I'll take a look at this as time permits (rather busy atm), and try to update
somewhere early in the F8 cycle.
What I really would like to see is the update of f7 branch. Hopefully release
engineering would not have anything against that provided we sort it out among
Maybe, first we need to get goffice (and libgda and libgnomedb, and gnumeric and
abiword and ...) all updated and tested in devel. Then we can ask rel-eng if
they are ok with pushing the whole set as "one" update to F7.
Sound reasonable. The thing is that new gchem* branch contains some nice
improvement, and waiting the whole release cycle for update seems like a bit of
a loss for the users. I'll do what I can to help with testing.
Short answer: AbiWord 2.5 should work with goffice 0.4, but 2.4 will not.

I see devel is currently on 2.4, do you plan / it is feasible to update F8 to
2.5 once the F8 cycle begin? Would it be a good idea to release this as an
update to F7 somewhat later then?
Hans: How about gnumeric? I have noticed that 1.7 is already out and some
goffice trunk reqs, so it looks like there are no major problems.
Marc: Do you know when 2.5 is planned to be released?
The 1.7 branch is the unstable branch. i haven't looked yet if gnumeric-1.6.x
will work with goffice-0.8, and if not what patches are needed.
Ah, it is unstable, I missed that. Thx for info.
I read that goffice-0.2.x and 0.4.x can be installed in parallel, so I might
wrap up goffice04 package if no better solutions will be available.
Comment #7 errata: I mean 2.6, of course.
Comment 6: For FC8 2.5 might be ready for inclusion, but we do not have a fixed
date for the final 2.6 yet.
Also I see no reason why we couldn't issue an update for FC7 when 2.6 is out, as
we will be fully backwards compatible (except for some changed command line
As the other goffice user, I should probably check gnucash. More later.
This has been resolved by adding a seperate parallel installable goffice04
package for now (until all dependend packages can be built against 0.4)
Closing as a dup of the review of the goffice04 package
