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.

A sample client, a sample server, and documentation are included in the distribution. YAZ also includes experimental support for the industry standard ZOOM API for Z39.50.

In the release, there is a new ZOOM function, ZOOM_connection_last_event, that returns type of last event (such as "receive data", "send data", "apdu received", etc.) and two new YAZ client commands: .

YAZ release 1.8.2 available

Kevin writes: "There is a new release of the YAZ toolkit. YAZ is a C/C++ programmer's toolkit supporting the development of Z39.50v3 clients and servers. In the new release, there is a new client-side MARC decode/display function which properly rejects non-ISO2709 records. There are also some ZOOM API changes."

YAZ Release 1.8 available

Sebastian Hammer writes: "There is a new release of the YAZ toolkit available (in addition to maintenance releases of ZAP and Zebra). The most important change is that we include support for an early version of the ZOOM API. ZOOM is an exciting new development in Z39.50, which suggests a common, high-level interface which can be implemented across many toolkits, and in most programming languages. It promises to make life a lot easier for developers of Z39.50 clients."
