Tellico-1.3.5

Tellico is another one that's seen steady improvements since the last post about it here. The latest version is 1.3.5, and release notes for this and prior releases are on the project's home page, which also highlights the variety of binary distros available.

A 1.3.5 source tarball is attached.

Tellico-1.2.14

It's been a long while since I've written about Tellico, the excellent personal bibliographic collection manager. But since the last post here, it's undergone a steady series of improvements and remains a terrific desktop app with super all-purpose biblio-fu. The latest version is 1.2.14.

Somehow I couldn't download 1.2.14, so a copy of 1.2.13 is attached.

Tellico-1.1pre3

From freshmeat: "Major bugfixes: A potential data loss bug that occurred when changing the config option for image location and selecting File->Save As was fixed."

Anyone know if this can be built on OSX?

yaz++-0.8, YAZ Proxy-0.8

from fm, changes include: "SRW/SRU support. Bugfixes for event handling. C++ compile fixes (for more picky GCC). The YAZ proxy is now a separate project and is no longer part of YAZ++ ... The proxy supports SRW/SRU/Z39.50 incoming connections and any Z39.50 backend server, CQL conversions, XML, and XSLT."

MARC Template Library 0.6

Tagged:  

Mark writes: "The MARC Template Library is a C++ API for reading MARC records using C++ templates and the Standard Template Library. It features an event parser inspired by Bas Peters' James (Java MARC Events), althought I have taken a very different approach by using templates and other features not found in Java. The parser is very fast - able to read over 30,000 records a second on my 450 mhz AMD k3, that is if you don't include the time to load the records from disk. In real world situations the speed is about 5,000 to 10,000 per second. It is still in the very early stages of development - so parts of it are not really usable yet and there's quite a few bugs."
