Re: Zim 0.42 released -- where is the Windows installer?


Hi Brendan,

Would be great to have a windows installer for the python version,
from the feedback I receive I estimate about half of these users are
actually using your installer. But do take the time you need to work
on it.

I was looking at the "wininst" pyton target as well. This would build
a bar installer that includes just zim and depends on python and gtk
being build independently. Still need to add some post install script
for that which adds a shortcut etc.
