Docear4Word 1.30: Faster and more robust BibTeX key handling

Docear4Word 1.30 is available for download. We improved the error handling, the speed, and the robustness for special characters in BibTeX keys. Here are all changes in detail

  • A database parsing error during Refresh now displays message with line and column information.
  • More robustness for special characters in BibTeX keys:
    • Changing to the official spec of allowed characters was causing too many problems for existing libraries.
    • < > & % { } ” plus whitespace characters are now disallowed but any other char is valid
    • An apostrophe ‘ is allowed in the database but is removed from the BibTeX key before use rather than treat it as invalid.
  • Some optimizations have been made so that moving through a large document with many fields should be faster
  • When the Reference tab is selected (and the Docear4Word buttons need to be updated), Docear4Word now makes the minimum number of checks necessary. It is still slower towards the end of a large document than the beginning but much improved over previous versions.
  • When the Reference tab is not selected, Docear4Word makes no checks and so cursor movement is at full speed regardless of position in the document.
