Change Log

Release 0.48 – August 1, 2010

Known bug: cannot open another notebook – Once you’ve opened one notebook, the Open command always fails after that. Workaround: be sure to register *.zim files to zim.exe during the installer, and just browse to the notebook’s .zim file in Explorer and double-click it.
