      We learned our lesson about announcing release dates after the 0.5.0 delays  But truthfully, we haven't discussed it much.  Our current work for 0.6.0 involves some big changes, though, so we will probably make a bug-fix release (say 0.5.1) before that.

      The MARC editor is something I'm working on right now.  But the MARC-8 character encodings are not a high priority for me, and they're more than I have time for at the moment.  Until someone gets the time and inclination to add character-set conversion support, your best bet is to use an external tool to convert your MARC-8 records to UTF-8 before you import them to OpenBiblio.  Then set the character set to UTF-8 in the admin interface.  This should just work, but I haven't actually tried it.


      • A bug fix release would help my work (no need to fetch CVS files). New releases ensure that the project is alive, too. Are you going to add new translations (if any?) to the bugfix release?
