BioMail-0.50pre1

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

pybliographer-0.9.7.1

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 gnome.org. if you haven't tried this yet give it a shot; i might finally get rid of endnote + msword (and there was much rejoicing). :)

Tagged:  

bp is a freely licensed perl package for manipulating and accessing bibliographic information. It supports bibtex, refer, endnote, procite, inspec, medline and other formats for input/output/conversion.

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."
