"A useful way of maintaining Bibtex references"

January 06, 2011  |  By philipm

 |  Version: JabRef 2.6


You don't have to remember Bibtex syntax


It isn't very good at importing Bibtext: paste it in to the raw BibTex box and it generally fails. It would also be good if it had corrections for non-ASCII characters, using TeX backslash codes.


It's a useful way of organising references but a bit weak on usability. A step up from editing a plain text file with Bibtex markeup.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.11b4
  • Add of Persian localization (by Behrouz Javanmardi)
  • “ISBN to BibTeX” fetcher now uses eBook.de's (API bug 1241)
  • BREAKING: Search groups now use same search logic as UI → avoids confusion when converting a UI search into a search group. Behaviour before: contains/regex check of whole search string; behaviour after: contains/regex check of every word of the search string. The new search is more powerful and con simulate the old behaviour: enclose everything in double quotes, e.g., process language → “process language”.
  • Fix for bug 1276: OO styles do not consider editor fields anymore for sorting
  • Fix for bug 1288: Emacs keybindings: Rebinding of C-f can now be configured
  • Special fields: .bib files edited with 2.11 beta 3 are not compatible with this release. Other versions are not affected.
  • JabRef metadata (“jabref-meta”) @comments are now always written in alphabetical order
  • Changed HTML description of search expressions, expressing the conditional logic more explicitly with brackets.
  • Fixed INSPIRE searches compatibility problem (by Stefano Gariazzo).
  • Change default of “use IEEE abbreviations” from TRUE to FALSE
  • Fix for bug 1293: “Star” for modified database is correctly shown again.
  • Journal abbreviation lists: In case entries are defined more than once, a message is output on the console
  • Antialiasing is now enabled and set to LCD
  • Update dependencies: jersey, commons.logging, pdfbox, JGoodies, glazedlists, JDBC connectors
  • Remove local JGoodies dependency: replace SimpleInteralFrame with SwingX JXTitledPanel and UIFSplitPane by JSplitPane
  • Switch from antlr2 grammar to antlr4 for capturing the search expressions. Should be backwards compatible.
  • Streamline logging API: Replace usages of java.util.logging with commons.logging
  • Refactored preferences
  • Fix several FindBugs warnings
