I'd like to inform everyone that there is a possible loss of data if
you use risx to export references. The problem was reported by Torsten
Bronger in this bug tracker item:
CONF (conference proceedings) datasets contain up to 4 titles: article
title, proceedings title, series title, and conference name. The risx
DTD up to 1.2.0 was not able to represent the latter. Thus, if you add
a CONF dataset in RIS format, the database will contain all four
titles. If you export such datasets as risx, the conference name will
be lost. If you export them as RIS, all titles will be retained.
All versions of RefDB which support risx up to 0.9.9. The problem has
been fixed in the current svn revision (716) and will not show up in
all future releases.
Use RIS to back up or export your data. Remember that the datasets are
correctly stored in your database. Unless you re-create a database
from a risx dump, your data will be safe.
I apologize for any inconveniences.
