all the import and export formats found in the old sub menus are accessible
through the menu choices you find now. You choose "Import into new
database", "Import into current database", "Export" or "Export selected
entries", and then you choose the format in the file dialog's file type
selector. Note that when importing, most of the time you can simply use the
"All files" setting and let JabRef find the correct import format.
