we're happy to announce the release and immediate availability of
refbase-0.9.0. It took us some time to get this release out of the
door, but I'm sure it was well worth the wait.
The included updater will also be able to update any refbase version
that was installed from CVS after the release of refbase-0.8.0 but
prior to this release.
The official release announcement is given below.

refbase 0.9.0 available
refbase is a web-based bibliographic manager for scientific
literature, references and citations. A new release of the refbase
package is available at:
This release offers major function enhancements and bugfixes. Batch
import from various bibliographic formats (including BibTeX,
Endnote, RIS, ISI and MODS XML) is now supported, as is import from
a PubMed ID. An OpenDocument Spreadsheet for use with OpenOffice.org
can be exported and formatted citation lists can be generated as
HTML, RTF, PDF, or LaTeX. A SRU/W service as well as support for
unAPI, OpenURL and COinS metadata have been added. These allow the
data to be used by the next generation of bibliographic clients. A
new command line client is also included.
