Subject: ANN: RefDB-0.9.6, refdb-mode


I'm pleased to announce that a new release of the RefDB reference
manager and bibliography tool is available:


DocBook SGML and XML as well as TEI XML documents are fully
supported. RefDB offers a Makefile-based document handling which makes
creating a PDF version of your publication with formatted citations
and bibliographies as simple as typing "make pdf".

RefDB is released under the GPL and runs on a variety of Unix-like
platforms as well as on Windows/Cygwin. Updated Debian and Cygwin
binary packages as well as a FreeBSD port will be available shortly.

In addition I'd like to announce the first release of a package
containing two Emacs modes that turn this editor into an integrated
authoring tool for markup languages with reference and notes
management as well as bibliography support:


refdb-mode is a minor mode which implements a frontend for all RefDB
client commands. It plays well with PSGML and nxml-mode for editing
SGML and XML documents, respectively. You can add and edit references
and notes, query the database, and insert your query results as
citation elements into your DocBook or TEI documents. You can create
new documents, transform them to HTML or printable output including
the automatically generated bibliographies, and view the resulting
documents with just a mouseclick.

To see refdb-mode in action, please view two Flash demos which show
reference management and bibliography creation, respectively:


ris-mode is a major mode which simplifies editing RIS datasets, one of
the two data formats accepted natively by RefDB.

The Emacs modes are also released under the GPL.
