Fixes: jpeg62.dll not found; Zim tries to write to log in "Program Files" and fails (now writing to $USERPROFILE/.config/zim); windows build ignores system locale; cannot open another notebook Known bug: 0.49 fails to start on a new installation with no existing notebooks. See if this workaround applies to you.

Desktop (17.4MiB) sig md5

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.
