mtCellEdit 1.4.0

I have just released version 1.4.0 of mtCellEdit here:

Graphing facilities are now integrated into the main GUI with data stored in the CED/ZIP book file format.  Graphs can be exported to various file formats including PNG, PDF and SVG.  Cells can now have various types of borders.  Sheets can now be exported as HTML files.

Here are some screenshots from the mtCellEdit test suite:











Just to demonstrate how output can be exported and used in another context, here are some shots of other programs viewing the test suite:







Despite putting in a lot of work into this release, the program and its support libraries are still reasonably small as outlined in this table:

mtCellEdit 1.2.0

Last month I released a new version of my spreadsheet program, which is here:

The big new feature is the export output facility which allows me to create PDF and SVG files containing the sheet data.  I also added a paged option which allows me to create a PDF file ready for printing, as per this screenshot from my PDF viewer:


All of this is possible thanks to the excellent Cairo project which allows vector based data to be output to a whole range of file formats.  This is the first time I have used the Cairo library in my own programs, and I look forward to using it again in the future (possibly for graphs).
