Developing for major new release

Right now we are working very hard on a new release. Many new features, but, more importantly, a lot of streamlining of code. Oh, and we just improved BiBTeX support: a lot of people asked us to allow non-standard BiBTeX fields to be stored in this database, and to be exported again to BiBTeX upon request. And we expanded the possibilities for attachments. And along the way improved the looks. Now if only CVS would work again... A few weeks of stress-testing the whole thing on our own systems, then a full release...

SourceForge CVS Temporarily Down

As some people may already have noticed, the SourceForge CVS server are having some problems. The Anonymous CVS servers are serving VERY old versions of the code. The Developer CVS servers are just not serving anything at all. But as soon as the servers are running again, we will be posting a lot of updates to the repository! We are currently having a development-burst, which will lead to a new release somewhere mid-june (probably).... read more

There have been many changes in the code recently. Users are advised to get a new release (0.1.5, 15 November) or do a CVS update to obtain the latest version. Selection of topics for publications is now easier, BiBTeX import is vastly improved, and a number of other small changes have been made.
