Note on New Google Spreadsheets

Google recently updated their Google Spreadsheets and the API. For a bit this was breaking things using the old API, including Tabletop. This has been fixed and the latest version of tabletop.js works on both old and new spreadsheets. Be sure to include at least version 1.3.4 in your project.
