After quite some delay, I finally assembled a second release candidate for KBibTeX 0.6.1. Version 0.6.1 will be the last release in the 0.6.x series.

The following changes were applied since the release of 0.6:

  • KDE Bug 371515: Speeding up selection of elements in bibliography lists
  • KDE Bug 371593: Sorting field and entry types in comboboxes alphabetically
  • Fixing crash when open file got modified externally
  • Correcting choke on PubMed searches to 10 seconds
  • Fixing search issues for ACM, Google Scholar, JSTOR, and ScienceDirect
  • Setting foreground color of colored rows to either black or white for better readability
  • Disabling OCLC WorldCat (request for support denied by this organization)
  • Generally improved code quality as detected by code checkers such as Clazy or Coverity
  • Fixing handling of URLs and their protocols for local files
  • Fixing setting default id suggestion
  • Adding 'Keywords' field to .desktop file
  • Removing file that was licensed under CC BY-NC, but never got installed
  • Improved Unicode support
  • Refactoring writing of bibliography files, both to local and to remote places, including writing to symbolic links
  • Better handling quotation marks and protective curly brackets around titles
  • Updating translations
  • Other minor backports from master. See git log v0.6..v0.6.1-rc2, git log -p v0.6..v0.6.1-rc2, or git diff v0.6..v0.6.1-rc2 for details.

Files (source code tar balls, checksums, and GnuPG signatures) are available for download at http://download.gna.org/kbibtex/0.6/:

Please report any problems through KDE's bug tracker.
A final release is planned for late January or early February, depending on feedback and time available to prepare a release.
