from pybliographer-general, several bugfixes and better BibTeX handling are now available. Go get it here.


from freshmeat: "Corrected problems when opening an empty bibtex file. pybconvert script fixed. Updated German and Italian translations." see (new url) for more.



from freshmeat: "bibmaster is a user interface to BibTeX databases. It is text-based and does not require a graphical interface. Features include direct use of the BibTeX format, the ability to add and edit entries, online help, search in any database field (using regexes), keyword editor enabling deletion and replacement of keywords in the database, produce a postscript file of selected entries, and the ability to read and write RIS files (used by ReferenceManager)." Read more here.

Pybliographer 0.9.6

new features listed at Pybliographer site include speedups, French language support, Medline, and LyX support as well, along with documentation. any end note users should try this out and let him know if it works...



as seen at freshmeat, and at SIXPACK site: "SIXPACK is a free BibTeX and Reference Manager designed to edit, convert and manage reference files, search and sort bibliographies, import and export many different bibliography types. Sixpack uses the excelent perl package bp by Dana Jacobson to covert between formats." and it reads/writes bibtex, refer, endnote, tip, procite, rfc1807, and plain text along with one-way for several others. written in perl/tk... looks real good.


as seen on gnome-list, what's new includes "multiple documents interface, with copy/paste and drag'n'drop; multiple selections (useful with LyX citation for example); all the supported formats (bibtex, medline, ovid, refer) can now be read and written; better date handling; bug fixes." for more see the pybliographer download page at if you haven't tried this yet give it a shot; i might finally get rid of endnote + msword (and there was much rejoicing). :)


As seen at freshmeat, gnome-list, and noted by Matt W.: "Many annoying bugfixes, a graphical configuration mechanism, and an XML-based style format for bibliographic outputs." Go to (note new url) for more.


as seen at "This version is only a minor bug-fixes release." Btw I've been using this a bit and I'm getting ready to let go of Endnote for good. Wooh-hooh... :)


from gnome-list: "endnote generated bibtex files should now be readable; additional configuration topics for bibtex; minor bug fixes" ...and from the pybliographer site: "Consider this version as a 1.0pre1, so please report any problem you encounter with it." Frederic is really doing great work on this... it's got every feature I need now. Wooh-hooh!


news from Frederic, via "we are now at 0.9.11, aka 1.0pre2. Improved bibtex author formatting and fixed compilation problems with i18n support. I'll be on vacation two weeks, and plan to release 1.0 when I come back, depending on the number of bug reports I'll find in my mailbox ;-)"

has anybody looked into plugging these classes into Zope yet?
