Zim 0.49 released !


Dear all,

I just uploaded release 0.49 of zim to the website. This release adds
two new plugins: an 'Attachment Browser' and an 'Inline Calculator'.
File writing on windows has been improved to avoid conflicts. Custom
applications can now be set in the preferences and behavior of 'Edit
Source' has been improved. Most important bugs that have been fixed
are handling of unicode file paths and removing the need for empty
lines around indented sections. Many more bugs have been fixed.
Translations for Hungarian, Italian and Slovak were added.

The release was overdue since the last release as already several
months ago and thus contains a lot of bug fixes for things that were
pending in the bug tracker. On the other hand there are also quite a
number of bugs in the tracker that I would like to have fixed but
simply did not find the time to work on. So enough work for the next
release cycle ;) On a positive note I think this release has the
highest number of contributors so far - check the changelog below
(hope I didn't forget anyone..).

As mentioned before I will be completely offline for at least 3 weeks
starting this weekend. So responses on new bug reports, questions etc.
will have to wait till December. But given the number of experienced
users who can answer questions on this list I trust things will be
