refbase 0.9.5 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 bug fixes. refbase-0.9.5 sports a refined interface, offers a query history and search suggestions, and supports more record types as well as searching for duplicates.

In addition, it can now import from SciFinder and Endnote XML as well as from ArXiv ID or DOI. refbase-0.9.5 also supports additional export formats (ADS, Atom XML, ISI Web of Science, Simple Dublin Core XML, Word 2007 XML Bibliography) and citation styles (AMA, APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, Vancouver), and allows to dynamically include results from a refbase server into foreign web pages.

This release also adds support for OpenSearch which allows users of OpenSearch enabled browsers to search refbase directly from their browser's toolbar.
