2018: a review

As I relax here during the holidays, this is a great time to write-up a quick review of 2018!

Curio's Birthday

I first started working on Curio way back in October 2002 and Curio 1.0 was released in 2004, making Curio 14 years old in 2018! It's amazing to see how far it has come! 🎉

Curio 12

We launched Curio 12 in the Spring of 2018 with an extremely popular request: markdown support! Writing in markdown, and exporting/importing markdown text, lists, mind maps, and more were extraordinarily useful additions to Curio's bag of tricks.

Curiota 3

In 2018 we also finally revealed our long-awaited Curiota 3 update! Our free, fast note-taking and file-collecting whiz kid app now supports dark mode, detachable windows, and a major user interface overhaul!


In May the GDPR European privacy initiative came into effect and Zengobi was ready with changes not just Europeans but globally so everyone has the same privacy protections.

We rolled out a new, detailed privacy policy explaining precisely how data is collected and used at Zengobi; fine-tuned out forums installation; cleaned up older, unnecessarily data collections from our sales databases; introduced a new opt-in mailing list; and much, much, more.

Basically anything that didn't need to be collected was tossed, and anything that was collected is now carefully documented.

This took a substantial amount of time but it's the right thing to do.

Thank You!

And, as I say every year, I truly appreciate all the wonderful customers that make Zengobi possible! Here's to 2019 and another year of awesome developments!
