as seen at freshmeat: "Major rewrite with lots of changes, including becoming object-oriented. All database handling was moved to the separate class. Ability to change the quantity of searches (now between 1 and 10), and to change the maximum quantity of references (now 20 to 400) added. A text area for the user to write a note to the authors was added. There are no longer empty accounts generated." read more at the BioMail Home Page

Prospero 1.0 available

Tagged:  

Eric Schnell writes in that "Prospero for Windows 2000/NT/98/95 is a web-based document delivery system designed as a compliment to the Ariel software system [for ILL over the net]... [it comprises] a staff module which captures and converts Ariel files to Web accessible documents... [and a] server-side user interface which allows patrons to retrieve their documents using a web browser." It is GPLd and uses some of my code! This got a major wooh-hooh! from everyone here at Yale... or, well, at least a "why, that is quite exciting indeed."

BioMail needs a host

BioMail (new link) was apparently shut down by its author's department, according to the message posted at its former site. Dmitry also stated, in a message to all users, "I have yet to find a host where I can continue the BioMail alert service temporarily or permanently. If someone can help, I would be very glad. BioMail requires a Unix system with Perl, a webserver installed, and a stable internet connection (Linux computer with Apache is preferable)." Can anyone lend a few server processes to get this up and running asap? [update (3/3)]: Dmitry just let me know via email that not only has the sourceforge crew ok'd running the server there, but he also already received two messages from some of you friendly folks who saw this or got the message from oss4lib-list. Way to go, folks... :)
