It would be useful to have the timestamp for entries update automatically when an entry gets edited.
This feature should be working in the latest development version. Please find a snapshot of JabRef 2.10dev at http://ge.tt/9Idc446 .
Not sure, but I think this should be opt-in rather than opt-out. In my case, I want the timestamp to reflect when I acquired an entry, and the date I last modified it doesn't really matter.
For others the priorities may be different. However, if a new version suddenly starts updating timestamps without the user being aware of it, users who use it the way I do may lose information. If we introduce it, but leave it off by default there should be no surprises.
I agree. Fixed in master branch.
