Yes, but we are still at the previous older version

and that these is a new candidate release 0.8.0rc1.

That's good news! I think this a great product for plone and it's been
around for a while, but the original developer sort of lost interest.

The latest info is:


A reference release to make the original status available before
the changes introduced with 0.8. Might be relevant for people using
it in custom settings already. New users should start with 0.8 or

Available downloads

First release since a long time. Therefore the version jump from 0.4
to 0.7. Too many changes to list them here. Most important addition
might be the BibTeX marshaller. Also, the package structure now
follows AT's conventions.

I think it would be a good idea if we upgraded the MathAction site
to at least the new 0.7.0 version.

We are also a little behind in the Plone releases. The current Plone
is 2.1. On MathAction we are at 2.0.4.

All it takes is someone (like you! :) to say they are interested in
this and I would be glad to spend some time doing the upgrades.

Yes, it is searchable by default as part of the plone portal
site. If you enter keywords in the search box on the upper right
some of the things you find will be BibTeX records. In the
Advanced Search you can limit the search to just BibTeX records.

Click 'Item type' ( ) Select All/None, then check off as many of
the *reference* types as you want. Enter some Search Text e.g.
"quadratic" and then click 'Search'. You should see 4 bibtex

I don't know how to do that exactly, but I do know that it is
possible to have multiple bibliographies and to search them all
together or separately. In Plone we could organize the separate
bibliographies into a hierarchical folder structure.

I think that it is possible to add such notes to the bibtex entries.
