Docear4Word 1.23 Released

The new Docear4Word v1.23 is out as Beta version. Changes are A more detailed error message when there is a parsing error in your BibTeX file. The latest v1.0.517 version of CiteProc-JS has been included. This should finally solve all the sorting and numbering issues. We made some adjustment that could improve the performance of Docear4Word. Not sure though, if it will really do. Special characters such as . ! ? _ ^< > are now allowed in the beginning of a BibTeX name. Please note that this is probably the last version that is compiled with VS2010 (requiring you to install .NET 2.0). The next release will be compiled with VS2013 (.NET 4) which should solve some compatibility issues with Read more…

Docear 1.02 Beta: Serious PDF Bug Fix; added a donation button

We discovered a serious bug in Docear that relates to the PDF management. In some situations, it could happen that when you edited a PDF, the annotation IDs were not recognized correctly, and a conflict was shown. We fixed this bug and publish Docear 1.02 as a beta version today. Right now, the Beta version download is only available in our forum. We would appreciate if you could test the new version. If there are no more serious bugs found, we will publish it as stable version without any further notifications. We also added a "Please Donate" note to the workspace panel. It leads you to our donation page and you are sincerely invited to make use of that page :-). If you have already donated, if you just don't want to donate, or if you need every pixel in the workspace, do a right-click on that note and you will be able to hide it. In addition, we also changed the welcome page that opens after you have installed Docear.

Docear 1.01 with some minor improvements and bug fixes

A few days ago we released the experimental version of Docear and wrote about it in our experimental release forum (you can subscribe to that forum if you want to be informed about new experimental releases). Today we declare Docear 1.01 as stable and from now on it's available on our primary download page. Changes are rather minor.  Enhancements include

  • A slightly modified dialog for selecting your PDF viewer (some links were updated)
  • The labeling of the file monitoring settings are now more uniform
  • The colors for "Move ..." in the "Nodes" ribbon were changed from green to blue. There's quite a funny story behind it. One of our team members recently told me that the arrows for moving nodes would point to the wrong direction. I told him that they were absolutely correct and we had quite a discussion. Then we realized that the team member is (red-green) color blind and couldn't recognize the green arrows properly. Well, now the arrows are blue (see screenshot) and all people should be able to recognize them correctly :-)
In addition, we did some bug fixes. (more…)

Docear 1.0 RC4 – we are getting close to version 1.0

Today we released the 4th release candidate version of Docear. With all the changes introduced into Docear with RC3, there were still some bugs to fix which could cause some distortion in the workspace tree or even prevented users with Chinese language settings from seeing Docear’s ribbon. RC4 is something like the final touch to our previous version and we really want to keep it save. So, if you want to help us, please download this version of Docear and report any bugs or issues you can find here. By the way, have you ever wondered if there was an easy way to get rid of all the information you don’t need when you are drafting your papers or organizing your Read more…

Docear 1.0 RC3: Improved monitoring concept, neater GUI, and many bug fixes

Today we released RC3 (Release Candidate) of Docear 1.0 (not yet on the official download page but here in the Blog only). It has one major change compared to previous Docear versions, namely we got rid of the "Incoming" mind map. In the past, most users never really got used to the idea why there was an 'Incoming' mind map and a 'Literature & Annotations' mind map. Now, there is only the 'Literature & Annotations' mind map but it has a special "incoming" node in which new PDFs are added. We hope that this concept is easier to understand. It also means that when you move a PDF from the incoming node to any other node in the mind map, and you create new annotations in the PDF, the new annotations are directly added to the PDF node in the mind map and there won't be any new node in the incoming node. However, if you prefer the old concept, don't worry. You can keep your old incoming mind map and use Docear as you were used to be. (more…)
