Hi,

I've noticed that in the new 0.66 release page suggestions (when jumping or inserting a link) do not behave like before. When choosing some page, and then inserting a colon, it does not show child pages suggestions anymore. After clicking 'rebuild index' it starts to work, but later it doesn't work again. Is it a new kind of behaviour or a bug?


Best,
Eugene

Hi Sara,

Sorry to hear that this release causes you so much trouble. To answer your last question first: this release is not intended to have major incompatibilities. Afraid that the reality of a project like zim is that we do not find all issues unless we actually make a new release. There isn't a big group of people testing changes before they are released, and although I try very hard my own testing and the unittest suite do not catch everything.

- headers are now removed at will
- removing an image while a page showing it is loaded now generates memory fault and terminates zim (worked great before) - renaming a page from outside while displayed in zim changed behavior to the worse

These 3 are new issues for me - you are the first to report them. Will try to reproduce and fix them.

- forking to background changed to blocking a terminal window

Here zim is now more inline with other applications. This was necessary to remove a lot of issues other users where having with the background spawning. This part of the code is now greatly simplified and *still* giving issues :(

- new unremovable "attachments" button wastes room under the text area (compromising my layout optimization)

This is a "rough edge" in the design. Side panes now "collapse" instead of "hiding". Keeping the tabs of the side pane visible at all times makes the behavior much more predictable for most users. It costs more real estate, and I'm open for design suggestions how to gain it back - maybe we should combine it with the statusbar for the bottom pane?

Regards,

Jaap

    Thanks, Jiri, for that hint. Helps a lot.

    @all
    Unfortunately, I had to find yet another unexpected incompatibility:
    Headers are removed even from existing files.
    For my workflow this means that I have to remove most
    well-formed-checks for the extension I have developed.

    Now it's 5 I found during the first day:
    - headers are now removed at will
    - forking to background changed to blocking a terminal window
    - new unremovable "attachments" button wastes room under the text
    area (compromising my layout optimization)
    - removing an image while a page showing it is loaded now
    generates memory fault and terminates zim (worked great before)
    - renaming a page from outside while displayed in zim changed
    behavior to the worse

    All those compromise my workflow and I will need a day's work or
    so (which I do not have at the moment) to recover.

    Is it really necessary to have such incompatibilities pushed to
    automatic updates?
    Usually incompatibilities will give rise to a change of the major
    release and shall not be pushed automatically.

    All the best,
    Sara
