ANNOUNCE: gcalctool - v4.3.48




gcalctool is the default GNOME desktop calculator.

It has Basic, Financial and Scientific modes. Internally it uses multiple
precision arithmetic to produce results to a high degree of accuracy.

This release is to try to get folks to give an important fix a real
workout before for GNOME 2.6 GA. See bug #135064 for more details.

Changes since the last version (4.3.46).

* Fixed bug 135064. Changing the sign of a large number (when "Show
  Thousands Separator" is on and this is not the C locale), no longer
  corrupts the display.

  My special thanks to Miloslav Trmac for fixing this problem in a
  really elegant manner. This is an important change to the way that
  numbers are displayed.

  The fix involved resetting all the internal calculations in gcalctool
  to be done in the C locale, and then localized (radix character and
  thousands separator), just before the number is displayed.
  I'd appreciate it if everybody could give this a good thrashing in as 
  many locales as possible to make sure that it's fully working.
* Fixed bug 135328. Added Shift-slash as a recognized alternate for the
  divide operation (needed by the be-latin1 keyboard layout).
