Hi all,

This is a highly recommended release for all rubygem-installations of
Spreadsheet::Excel. It fixes a critical bug reported by Kirk H…
If you downladed and installed the tarball of 0.3.5 you’re fine:

== What is it?
Spreadsheet::Excel is a port of John McNamara’s Perl module
“Spreadsheet::WriteExcel”. It allows you to generate Microsoft Excel
compatible spreadsheets (in Excel 95 format) on any platform. These
spreadsheets are viewable with most other popular spreadsheet

== How to get it?
gem install spreadsheet-excel
