Zim 0.47 released !


Dear all,

I just uploaded the 0.47 release of zim. Both sources and unofficial
ubuntu package are available from the website at
http://www.zim-wiki.org/downloads.html .

This release add significant improvements for the page index and the
task list index. For the task list plugin "TODO" and "FIXME" tags are
supported again. The trayicon plugin now supports the Ubuntu 10.4
application-indicator menu. The trayicon menu also has a new "create
note" dialog to quickly paste text into any notebook. A new plugin was
added to insert symbols and special characters. And a new plugin was
added to insert and edit GNU R plots. Placeholders can now be moved
and deleted as regular pages. Non-utf8 filesystems are now supported
as well as unicode filenames on windows. A translation was added for
Traditional Chinese.

See changelog excerpt below for more details.

I think there was too much time in between this release and the
previous one, with many fixes and new features queuing up. Will try to
get back to make smaller releases roughly on a monthly basis.
