KBibTeX released

Tuesday, 14 March 2023 | Thomas Fischer

KBibTeX got released, tar-balls are available at KDE’s download mirrors. This is the last release of the 0.9.x branch. Next is 0.10, where I will prepare release candidate tar-balls in the next few days and hopefully we will see a final release 0.10.0 this Spring.

A number of issues got fixed, including but not limited to:

  • Bugs 463398, 459150, 464607, and 464606.
  • Various online searches got revamped and should work again.
  • Building against newer Qt versions (thanks to Albert Astals Cid)

See the full ChangeLog for all the details.

Some spoilers about what is happening in the ‘master’ branch: I have been working on an exporter to Microsoft Word’s bibliography XML. Writing scientific manuscripts with references in Word is a painful experience, but this exporter allows you to continue to use your favorite BibTeX editor even under dire circumstances.
