I was looking for a note manager in this style as well.
I tend to use Zim, that is more for advanced notes/wiki than anything, but this is just ideal to have around. Low resource usage and just the right set of features.
I am amused by the Scripts tab at the preferences menu. However I didn't find any reference in the package, nor any example script to use. I'd like to feature request a few example scripts to see how they can be useful.

Happy New Year!
Thank you for response.
I know about problem with using scripts, it's in my TODO list now)

You can execute added scripts by pressing on button "Commands" on toolbar.
Script is shell command/script.

Happy new year :D
I see about scripts, by the way, maybe this is a bug. When I shutdown my machine (KDE 4.3, Ubuntu 9.10) zNotes blocks the shutdown and the tray icon becomes transparent. After this I can shutdown again and it doesn't keep blocking.
I compiled zNotes from the latest sources as of now.

Intresting, that's the first time I've heard about this problem. I'll try to reproduce this bug.

Interestingly enough, this strange behavior disappeared in KDE 4.4 Beta 2. unfortunately I didn't consider a rollback to 4.3 so I cannot provide further feedback. Did you manage to reproduce it in your system, though? I can give details on other running applications if needed.

Actually, please ignore my last message, as this still does happen in 4.4 Beta 2 and RC1 (however the transition messed up startup applications so znotes was not active, my bad).
What information can I provide to help?

I'm working on version 0.4 now.
And it's almost ready, I planned to realize it this month.
How I can contact with you to test it before realize?
Do you use jabber (or any other IM)?

I do, but I am not in a stable residence at the moment, so I cannot sit in front of the computer as much as I'd like...does OpenDesktop.org have message capabilities? Can work...

By the way, I would like to make a small suggestion...I made a small script (nothing complex, just a pipe) to generate notes from text snippets. However, to read the new notes, zNotes has to be restarted. Is it possible to add a "refresh" button?

Yes, simular functions are planned (including automatic update of notes list).

Been hoping something like this would come along. Thanks for the work.

Is it something you have planned to be able to have clickable links in the notes? I tend to use alot of weblinks when I create notes. :)

Hi

Nice application. I use it on a Windows-PC too. I created the EXE using MingW32, Qt4.5.3-static and wine. As it is a static build, I compressed it using UPX.

If I'll open about/settings windows while the main window is hiding, and close them, zNotes will closed too.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English...
