This minor update comes quickly because of two serious bugs in JabRef 2.0. Everyone who has downloaded 2.0 is strongly recommended to upgrade to 2.0.1 immediately.
JabRef 2.0 has a serious bug that can mess up your data. The downloads for this release have been hidden. Please don't use version 2.0 - wait for an update in a few days that will solve this problem!
JabRef 2.0 adds a large set of new features: new import and export filters (e.g. OpenDocument spreadsheet), simple registering of custom import filters, handling of journal name abbreviation/unabbreviation, easier and safer handling of character encodings, pushing citations to Emacs, better customization of appearance, and a lot more. A lot of bugs have been fixed, as well.
This minor version adds a couple of minor features: entry timestamping, option to abbreviate fields in key generator, and user-specific entry marking. The main focus is on bugfixes since the 1.8 release.
Source packages, executable jar and Mac package available now. Windows msi file will be available in a couple of days.
JabRef is a graphical application for managing bibliographical databases. JabRef is designed specifically for BibTeX bases, but can import and export many other bibliographic formats. JabRef runs on all platforms and requires Java 1.4 or newer. The new stable release of JabRef provides lots of improvements, new features and bugfixes since version 1.7.1.
Thanks to everyone who has submitted bug reports, patches, feature requests and other kinds of feedback!
Another beta of the 1.8 release is out. This version fixes many bugs from the first beta (plus some older bugs), and adds a few new features. Highlights include improvements for Endnote, Medline and Sixpack imports, OpenOffice Calc export now working with OOo 2.0 beta, and better handling of external file changes.
The final version will be released in just a few weeks, so if you want to help out with testing, give it a try right now and report any problems that come up!
The beta version of JabRef 1.8 is now available for donwload. The new version brings a great deal of new features, improvements of old features, and many bug fixes.
JabRef 1.7.1 is a minor release that fixes several bugs from version 1.7.
JabRef 1.7 is now available for download. New features include:
- Hierarchical and more versatile grouping controls.
- Built-in export filters for OpenOffice, Endnote, and RTF.
- Automatic detection of import format
- A dialog for checking the integrity of fields.
- Improvements to the format of output bib files
- Many significant user interface improvements and bugfixes.
The 1.7 beta version has been released. It offers some very nice new features, like hierarchical grouping, autodetection of import format and full customization of as many general fields tabs as you need in the entry editor.
There is one known issue: when merging external file changes, group changes will not be handled. This will be in place for the 1.7 final version.
Note: The initial jar file was corrupted in the upload to the SourceForge servers, so if the jar file you downloaded doesn't work, try to download a new one. The working jar file is about 2.2 MB, while the corrupted one was only about half the size.
