Re: Zim 0.53 for Windows available now


Thanks a lot, Brendan.

As a Windows user, I really appreciate your work.

Just a quick note: on http://www.glump.net/software/zim the table
reads: "download 12MB", but the installer weighs about 21MB. Perhaps
it's a typo. I'm letting you know this, because the size difference
might confuse some users.

Kind regards

Marco Cevoli
