Today we released BibSonomy 2.0.29 which includes some smaller updates that nevertheless might help you a lot: * The tag search now supports the "but not" negation, i.e., you can search for posts that have some tags but not some other tags using the system tag sys:not:TAG. For example, you can get all posts that have the tag folksonomy but not the tag bookmarking by searching for folksonomy+sys:not:bookmarking. * Firefox and Chrome add-ons now replace the well-known bookmarklets - you can get them from the buttons page. * We included tag autocompletion on some places, including the editTags page and at the quick tag editor in post lists. * We made the layout using less space on your screen (reload the page with Shift-F5 to see the effect). * The QR code scanner is now also available to post publications.Release 2.0.29 ·
* Support of complex tag queries: Up to now, we did not answer tag queries with 10 or more tags for performance reasons. With this release, this has changed, now also larger numbers of tags can be queried. For the techies: We've solved the performance issue using Lucene in the background
* CSL via REST-API: Since our last release, we're offering a new export format for publications, namely formatted according to the Citation Style Language. This format is now also available via our API by appending the parameter ?format=csl
If you are regularly attaching PDF documents to your publication posts you have probably already seen it: since quite a while BibSonomy renders a preview image for each uploaded document. A large version is shown whenever you hover with the mouse over a link to the document. For one selected document of each post a small preview is also shown in in the post lists of your personal pages. ·
BibSonomy now runs as version 2.0.23! This release contained a lot of clean-up with respect to the latest layout changes.
* The page is now completely scrollable again.
* Preview pictures of publications are only displayed on larger screens.
* The sidebar is no longer undisplayed on smaller screens to keep all navigation (tags, similar tags, discussion pages, etc.) available.
The non-scrollable version of BibSonomy might come back sometime as one of two or more options to choose from in your personal settings. Our efforts to redesign BibSonomy continue and we hope to see some results within the next months.
Next to these design-minded changes, the new release includes:
* An all new experimental feature: QR Codes for publications and a QR Code scanner on the clipboard.
* A first draft for referencing publications or bookmarks in discussions (reviews and comments (take a look).
* A first draft for posting publications by uploading a .pdf file.
Stay tuned for the next feature of the week posts to learn more about these new possibilities. ·
As a social bookmark and publication sharing system, most of BibSonomy's content is user generated and as the number of users using the system is increasing, also the amount of information available increases. Consequently more and more topics of interest come into the system and accordingly the user has to somehow focus on relevant entries. One approach for focussing on relevant resources is to just look at entries of users which are relevant for you. But interests are diverse and accordingly the set of relevant users distributes over the set of interests. ·
As announced earlier, we changed the format of person names for author and editor fields in publication posts from First Last to Last, First in the last release. Since this has quite some implications, I would like to discuss the changes a bit more in detail in this feature of the week. ·
The Summer break is officially over and thus we have just released BibSonomy 2.0.18.
At our Maven repository you'll find the publicly available libraries.
As announced earlier by Robert, the name handling has been changed to always storing names as "last name, first name".
Further, this release introduces:
* an autocomplete for the inbox systemTag "send",
* an autocomplete for the detailed information fields during publication posting,
* an easy means to normalize your BibTeX keys,
* another supported filetype for the document upload: .tex,
* and scraping-support for publication posting from INSPIRE β and Taylor & Francis Online.
As always, we'll go into detail in our "Feature of the Week" blog post series. ·
Two important aspects of working with literature are the process of sharing it among your colleagues and the exchange of ideas and thoughts about it. Facilitating the first aspect - sharing - has always been a core feature of BibSonomy. However, this weeks blog post is all about the second aspect: Discussion! ·
With some delay, today we upgraded BibSonomy to 2.0.16. We also updated our publicly available libraries at our Maven repository.
We are happy to announce, that this release includes the first version of a new major feature: Discussions and Reviews. We'll go into detail about that in our next blog post. But take a look at the stars you'll now find at the bottom right of every post and the new discussion link under each post.
Furthermore, new are:
* two new hidden system-tags: sys:unfiled and sys:jabRef:
* the extended functionality of the URL-parameter sortPage (sorting bookmarks is now possible)
* more allowed file types for your private document upload.
The next release is scheduled for July 27th. ·
