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.

RefDB-0.9.9

RefDB has changed a lot since the last mention of it here. From the latest release news on fm:

"The PHP Web interface supports live links for keywords, authors, and periodicals which are displayed as "tag clouds". Automatic format detection from local files is done, and has a type-sensitive form for editing data. RefDB implements all SRU operations (explain, searchRetrieve, scan) with MODS output, and conforms to CQL Level 2. Namespaced XML output allows processing of schema-based TEI P5 and DocBook V.5.0 documents. Raw bibliographies were added. Searching for and styling of less-common fields was improved."

The source, perl client, and sru support code are attached.

TextCite-1.0.2

Tagged:  

As seen on fm:

"TextCite is a program for organizing and commenting textual citations from texts (books, articles, or other published works) for use in producing scientific or academic publications. You can organize by publication, author, category, or outline. It works with bibliographic management programs like Citation, EndNote, RefWorks, and BibTeX, providing important text/citation management capabilities that these programs lack, while still allowing for rapid footnote and bibliography generation by means of your favorite bibliography manager. It also exports to PDF and Word (RTF)."

The latest release, 1.0.2, sounds like a mostly bugfix rev.

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.

refbase-0.9.0

refbase-0.9.0 adds support for unAPI, COinS, and a SRU/W web-service:

refbase is a web-based bibliographic manager for scientific literature, references and citations. A new release of the refbase package is available from SourceForge.

This release offers major function enhancements and bugfixes. Batch import from various bibliographic formats (including BibTeX, Endnote, RIS, ISI and MODS XML) is now supported, as is import from a PubMed ID. An OpenDocument Spreadsheet for use with OpenOffice.org can be exported and formatted citation lists can be generated as HTML, RTF, PDF, or LaTeX. A SRU/W service as well as support for unAPI, OpenURL and COinS metadata have been added. These allow the data to be used by the next generation of bibliographic clients. A new command line client is also included.

See Feature Highlights for an overview of the main features of this package.

Please see the README file for an overview of refbase, what has changed in this release, and how to install or update refbase. The README is available in the package and online.

For more information about the refbase project and pointers to working examples of refbase (including freely accessible demo databases) please visit the refbase home page.

Tellico-1.1.5

From fm: "A bug that caused too many temporary image files to be written was fixed. Searching for multiple ISBN values using z39.50 was fixed. A layout bug for paragraphs in the Fancy template was fixed. IBS searches now reverse the author name. "Xbox 360" was added to the Amazon.com game searches. Deleting and re-adding a field by the same name no longer crashes. Default fields are no longer recreated when adding search results. The Spanish translation wasu pdated."

Anyone know if this can be built on OSX?

LORLS-5.1

Jon writes: "Another update to the Loughborough Online Reading List System (LORLS). Changes include the tagged-ref-import script omitted previously, also some fixes for tagged reference (specifically RefWorks) import and export. Fixed modcode suggestions if a user tries to create a new module with a code that already exists. MARC.pm now used to decode the records supplied by Z39.50 (including ones with local control numbers and no real ISBN/ISSNs or multiple ISSN/ISBNs). Displaylist now does caseless matching of stages/dept codes as we had some instances of lists "invisible" to browsing because of incorrect case for these. Added some extra indexes as suggested by Ben Charlton."

Document Archive-0.9.4

Konrad writes: "Document Archive (docarc) is a web-based database to help you (and your workgroup) keeping track of the vast amount of electronic documents and BibTeX entries you might have in use. Browser plugins and console frontends are developed to allow fastest access with typical tools."
