Where to Get It?

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

What's Next?

Unless there is a critical problem with this release, the next step will be KBibTeX 0.7 which will be the last KDE4-based release branch.

Of course, a KDE Frameworks 5-based release is already underway, but you need to checkout the master branch from Git to test it. The code is quite mature (personally, I use it for regular work), so feedback is welcome to advance a release there.

Due to real lifeTM, I won't be able to publish any release schedule.
