The new beta version improves usability of JabRef and includes patches from the community. For instance, we added support for specifying a BibTeX file at
--importToOpen. This allows a usage in browsers to directly append downloaded entries to the currently opened database.
Writing of a .bib file has been changed to gain a more human-readable bibtex file. The behavior can be adapted at Options->Preferences->File->"File saving options".... read more
Long time no news, but many releases. The highlights of the last
releases are support for synchronizing a directory with papers and a
database, importing PDFs based on their text, import by drag’n’drop to
the preview pane, converting a reference string to a BibTeX entry by
the FreeCite service, fetching BibTeX entries from DOI and ISBN, clean
up functionality, ranking of entries, improvements for all fetchers,
and many more. We also went through all submitted patches and applied
most of them. A big thanks goes out to all the patch submitters and
contributors. You keep us motivated!
