iVia in DLib

Don writes: "iVia - the software that runs the INFOMINE gateway - is described in an article from D-Lib Magazine, Jan. 2003 - "iVia Open Source Virtual Library System". Wow!"

ParaTools-1.00

from fm: "ParaTools is a set of Perl modules for the handling of document references. It includes two citation parsers, a document parser, OpenURL support, Web service examples, and detailed documentation. The toolkit is available as open source, and has been designed to be easily expandable. The parsing functionality in ParaTools is already in use in the ParaCite system."

g3data-1.2

from freshmeat: "This version ported g3data to GTK+ 2.2. All deprecated functions were removed."

g3data-1.06

from freshmeat: "This release uses gdk-pixbuf instead of Imlib for image manipulation. The ability to scale and image with command line parameters has been added." Find it at the g3data site.

g3data-1.05

This came out about a month ago, must have missed it. From the g3data site: "g3data is used for extracting data from graphs. In publications graphs often are included, but the actual data is missing. g3data makes the extracting process much easier." Very, very slick, and while it's a niche application there will likely be a moment each of you will need this upon encountering a frustrated researcher on deadline at the reference desk. Reminds me of registering datapoints on old maps using GIS.

Concordance-0.2

Tagged:  

more meat, freshlike: "Concordance is a simple concordancing tool for the Linux (and possibly other Unices) console, with regexp capabilities. It scans a text file and outputs concordance lines based on a node entered by the user."

g3data-1.03

from freshmeat: "g3data is a program for extracting data from graphs (i.e., scanned graphs from scientific publications). It can read many different image formats and outputs the extracted data through stdout." Way cool; any sense of how many researchers are doing this kind of data reanimation?

Gutenbook-0.1.6

Tagged:  

from gutenbook.org: "Added GNU GPL copyleft statements to all files. Fixed a couple minor bugs (example: opening a file and not actually selecting a file no longer instantiates an empty Etext object). Implemented a GtkNotebook for the library window such that each tab represents an alphabetical range of sorted Etext titles. Added a label to the library to indicate number of titles in range and total titles in index. Selecting/downloading an Etext now leaves that selected row visible in the GtkCList."

Gutenbook-0.1.8

Tagged:  

as seen at freshmeat: "Fixes for the broken column sorting, a minor fix in the Etext grabbing code to account for inaccuracies in the Index, sorting code optimizations for the Library Browser, and a separate column in the Index indicating if the work is under copyright." all this and more at gutenbook.org...
