PySpread 1.99.7

PySpread is a desktop spreadsheet application. It's unique in supporting Python expressions in table cells rather than introducing a basic style language. It allows CSV import and export, while its own files are GPG signed. It can create charts using matplotlib, grid cells return pythonic objects, like macros can also be written in Python. It can therefore also utilize numpy or matrix operations.
