Release 2.0.38

Dear BibSonomy users,

we're happy to announce the release of BibSonomy 2.0.38. The following new features are included:

  • we improved document sharing across groups. You can now control in detail to which specific groups you share your uploaded documents
  • Quite a time ago, we shared some thoughts about implementing semantic pingback in BibSonomy, so that authors will be notified if their publications were cited elsewhere. This feature has now arrived.
  • We included wildcard matching for the sys:not system tag, to help you exclude tags even better in your searches
  • Your CV page is now customizable.
Next to all this, we also fixed some internal bugs.

The next release of BibSonomy will be on Octobre, 16th this year because of our summer break.

Happy tagging :)

Downtime due to server failure

Dear BibSonomy user, unfortunately our main BibSonomy server had to be restarted. In order to thoroughly investigate the reason for this failure, BibSonomy is down for a period up to two hours. We are very sorry for this inconvenience! Take a rest and then keep on tagging!
