refbase 0.6.1b1 available

refbase is a web-based solution for managing scientific literature, references and citations. A new beta release of the refbase package is available at the files section:

This beta release incorporates the following main fixes and enhancements:

- circumvents a very stupid bug where it wasn't possible to setup
the very first user of the database (see the readme for details!)

- a user management interface is provided to admins

- users can now change their password later on

- variable settings from '' are now honoured correctly

- provided a search form that shows up on the main page after
successful login which will allow a user to easily search his *own*
literature only (note that this functionality is still preliminary!)

Please see the online documentation as well as the readme file (that comes with the package) for a quick overview about what's there, what's still missing and how to setup your files & database tables. The readme is also available online at:
