Re: Zim version 0.74.0 released !
I can't see the Win version on the download page. I suppose the
persons in charge haven't compiled it yet, have they?

For some reason, especially since the move to Python3, Zim is significantly sluggish there. On my other PCs, even old ones, Zim is fine; basically no discernible lag. So most/all of this problem is on my side even if it's not under my control. BUT, as I noted most of the lag seems to be caused by the spell checking, if I turn that off Zim is almost instant [hence #1497]. Note, I do tend to have pages in the 2,000-4,000 line range. And lack of spell checking is a show stopper for me. :-)
