Zim version 0.74.0 released !


Hi all,

Today I released zim version 0.74.0. The full changelog is below. Key
changes in this release are: support for "anchors" to link within pages,
the ability to edit pages in a separate window and the possibility to undo
edits in the last 10 pages that are edited (within a session) even after
switching pages, and highly improved behavior when copy-pasting text with
images from one page to another. Also there is a key user-interface change
in that the main toolbar has been replaced by actions in the window border
(using the Gtk3 "headerbar") and a dedicated "editing bar" underneath the
page view. I realize not everyone will like this change, please see the new
"Toolbar" plugin, which supports a "classic mode" to revert to something
closer to the old interface.

Yesterday I also enabled the "discussions" feature on GitHub. This is
essentially a forum-style discussion board. Would like to test whether that
works better for some development discussions, or maybe even could replace
this mailing list at some point. If you want to discuss, please go to:
