Re: Zim version 0.59 released
Has version control been tested on Windows? I have Git so just tried it
It wasn't obvious from Configure whether I needed to do anything more
but eventually I found the "More info" docs. So then I tried "File >
Save Version?" This said version control was not yet enabled, so I
confirmed I wanted it and this greated a .git repository but the Zim GUI
froze and never came back.
Now Zim won't start up and (as before on Windows) Zim -D is not
generating a log.
At this point I noticed there is a new version of Git for Windows so ran
the install to bring it up to v1.18 (git-scm.com). The installer noticed
Git.exe was running and closed it, at which point the Zim GUI woke up
and showed this error dialog:
Failed to run application: git
git "commit" "-a" "-m" "Automaticallyse saved version from zim"
returned non-zero exit status -1073741510
Note that despite this error a ".git" repository was present before Zim
unfroze, but has disappeared now but this may be because I disabled sync
of .git in Dropbox? That would explain absense of ".zim" here also.
It could be that Dropbox is the culprit here. Can you stop sync without
Dropbox doing this!!!? Should I just let it sync ".git" (which I don't
like to do?!).

Since Bazaar is already used for development, would that work about as

Sure, actually that was the first one supported by zim. Others have
been added now.
