Release 3.4.0

Since the first of December BibSonomy 3.4 is here.

If you were still using our legacy layout, you may have noticed that we deprecated it in favor of our bootstrap layout, which we introduced in BibSonomy 2.0.48.

Besides that,  not much has changed on the front end. Under the hood however, a lot is different now. All search capabilities are now handled by Elasticsearch. We hope this will increase the search performance in terms of speed and accuracy for the user, as well as decrease the load on the server handling the searches. We are looking forward to get some feedback from you concerning this.

Of course we fixed quite a few bugs and errors in the code as well.

This will be the last release in 2015. We wish you a wonderful Christmas time!

Happy tagging,
Tom

Feature of the Week: BibSonomy Scholar

We are happy to introduce our new Google Chrome extension BibSonomy Scholar which tightly integrates Google Scholar and BibSonomy. It allows to directly manage your publication within the Google Scholar web interface.


Current features include indicators marking publication you already posted, inline posting new publications, quickly editing posted publications, directly adding missing PDFs to your publications, as well as several other possibilities to access BibSonomy features with much less hassle.

You can find the Google Chrome extension on the Chrome Web Store. For addition information, a full set of features and the possibility to request further features or report bugs, please refer to our Bitbucket repository, where the source of the extension is also openly available.

Since this is the first release of BibSonomy Scholar, there might still be some rough edges and bugs. Thus, we would greatly appreciate feedback and ideas to further enhance this extension. Nevertheless we hope that you enjoy the provided features and find BibSonomy Scholar as useful as we do. Have fun using it!
