I have been testing gretl's spreadsheet data importers more thoroughly
than before, in the course of making gretl files for the data that
accompany the textbooks by G. S. Maddala, and Stock and Watson.
In the process I have discovered quite a few little bugs and
"misfeatures", so there will be several fixes in gretl 1.2.2.
Hopefully, this should make the importation of such data easier and
I am also working on improving gretl's built-in data spreadsheet; that
too will have several small fixes in the GTK 2 version (which is also
the one used on MS Windows).
