Zim 0.57 released!


Dear all,

I'm happy to announce the release of zim version 0.57.

Highlights of this release are a rework of the side panes, allowing
plugins to be
positioned on any side, simpler configuration for external
applications, a critical
bug fix for the version control plugin and fixes for localization on windows. A
number of improvements have been made to the attachment browser, the calendar
plugin and the tasklist plugin. New features include the option to
export to ReST
and two new plugins: one for inserting music scores using GNU Lilypond,
and another for Zeitgeist integration.

Thanks to everyone for contributing patches and filing bug reports. I have been
a bit less responsive, but none the less, there is a steady stream of
coming in.

Sorry for the suggestions and fixes that didn't make it, will try to
make smaller
update releases faster to get more stuff out.

Only thing left for this week is to update the bounty listing on the webpage,
any suggestions how to get more attention for that are welcome.
