ses.texi (The Basics): Mention how to create a new spreadsheet. Mention the

new three-letter column identifiers.
(More on cell printing): Calculate-cell and truncate-cell are now `c' and
`t' rather than `C-c C-c' and `C-c C-t'.  Mention the stupid error message
when using `c' on an empty default with default printer.
(Buffer-local variables in spreadsheets): `symbolic-formulas' was
renamed to `ses--symbolic-formulas' some time ago.
