bibus-1.2.1 released (consider it a beta version)

After some troubles pointed out by Martijn W. (thank you), the version 1.2.1 is up and seems to be ok (unicode is now supported).
Some problems might remain (mainly for OOo users who should prefer the source version, downloadable from the CVS).
Hopefully a final release should arrive soon.

Bugs discovered (etblast & formating) solved in next release

You might have noticed that the current version 1.2.0 has few problems (fixes in next version):
1- eTBLAST server not working anymore. The webpage of eTBLAST has been modified on may 16th.
2- Unicode problems with author names (spanish and other langages)
3- Problems with citations, numbered style ([2][5][6][7])=> ([25-7]) instead of ([2;5-7])

All these issues are fixed and the next version will contain the fixes. Just update as soon as the next version is out.

New release of the beta version of what Bibus could become.
Two major features were added:
1- Interface with MS Word. Although Bibus has been designed for OOo, it has been complemented with an interface for Word XP and 2003 (it also works with Word 2000 but we recommend the use of XP and 2003). Bibus/Word works the same way than Bibus/OOo
2- An interface to the eTBlast server ( ETBlast allows to query medline using a natural langage query. Paste your summary in the eTBlast search Box and Bibus will find the related references to your text. The references will be loaded in Bibus and ready to insert in your document.... read more
