More Info:

 The cb2Bib is a tool for rapidly extracting
unformatted biblographic references from email
alerts, journal Web pages, and PDF files.

The cb2Bib is intended to be used by scientists
and students. It facilitates catching single
references at the time of being announced. The
references are formatted as BibTeX standard. A PDF
file with the article text, if available, can be
easily renamed to more meaningful than the well
known 'science' or 'fulltext.pdf' filenames...
Applications such as Kile, KBibTeX, sixpack,
JabRef, Pybliographer, Tellico, or OpenOffice can
later retrieve, import, use, or display these
BibTeX references. In summary, cb2Bib is designed
to help organizing and storing the huge amount of
bibliographic information that everyday reaches
our mailboxes.

 version 0.7.2

The realease adds a raw clipboard data view mode,
client 'download reference to' functionality, and
the option to use double braces in titles. It
improves the build script and install
documentation. It fixes minor bugs, related to
pasting formatted text, reading of already HTML
encoded DOIs, and updating the viewer in some
particular cases.

version 0.7.1

This release fixes a couple of minor, but annoying
bugs. Concretely, local file open on Windows, and
LyX pipe selection on Unix versions.

version 0.7.0

All known issues related to Qt3 to Qt4 migration
have been addressed. Mainly, it has been fixed
field selection in cb2Bib panel, copying/moving
files from PDFImport, and some wrong open file
dialog messages. A few minor improvements have
been included. In particular, file selection
dialogs display navigation history, and BibTeX
output file can be more conveniently selected from
a combo list. Such a feature is specially usefull
to users that sort references in thematic files.

version 0.6.91

This release fixes a regression in the cb2Bib
network capabilities. Network, and hence querying
was erratic, both for the internal HTTP routines
and for external clients. In addition to this fix,
the netqinf.txt has been updated. PubMed is
working again. Queries are also extended to
include DOI's.

version 0.6.90

The cb2Bib has been ported from Qt3 to Qt4. Qt
experienced many changes and improvements in this
major release upgrade. Relevant to cb2Bib, these
changes will provide a better file management,
word completion, faster searches, and better
desktop integration. As one might expect, major
upgrades introduces new bugs that must be fixed.
The cb2Bib 0.6.90 is actually a preview version.
It has approximately the same functionality than
its predecessor. So, no additions were considered
at this point. Its use, bug reporting, and
feedback is encouraged.
