Post docear- (Docear 1.1 final)
on: May 13, 2014, 15:20

Hello guys,

we have finally fixed the last critical bugs in our beta release and are proud to present the final version of Docear 1.1.

Just to make sure that nothing went wrong with the build process, we release this version here first. Please test it and tell us if anything goes wrong. If we don't hear any complaints we will officially release it in the next days in the Download section on our website.

Thanks a lot for feedback, your ideas and your bug reports. 🙂

We have already introduced the changes since Docear 1.0.3 stable, if you want to have a look at them, please refer to my last posts on this board.

The change log since Docear 1.0.3 stable:

New features include:

  • PDF metadata extraction
  • "Show in reference manager" works with multiple PDF files

Enhancements include:

  • Prevent Docear from opening new BibTeX files through Drag&Drop
  • Prevent from "flickering" caused by annotation updater on a lot of nodes
  • "Delete file from disk" is more distinct to select
  • Recommendation Rating more obtrusive

Bugfixes include:

  • Broken BibTeX file freezes Docear on startup
  • "Remove line breaks from annotation" did not work
  • PDF metadata extraction freezes Docear for a PDF file
  • Docear installer could not find installed JRE, while the All-OS version can
  • Special PDF file caused refresh abort
  • Copy reference key did not work when a non-reference node was selected first
  • NPE after changing year attribute on mind map node
  • NPE caused by AnnotationExtractor
  • Caught exception thrown when Windows registry could not be read correctly
  • MultiLineActionLabel link mark (underline) is not wrapped correctly
  • Removing line breaks by default did not work

Some additional tickets we worked on during the implementation of the metadata extraction:

  • Metadata extraction on PDF with multiple nodes
  • Make inactive fields more consistent in metadata retrieval wizard
  • Limit title to use only one line in metadata extraction dialog
  • Show file extension in metadata extraction dialog
  • Search external sources only when radio button is selected
  • 'Esc' key executes 'cancel' button
  • Change some strings im metadata extraction dialog
  • Drag&Drop for already referenced PDFs is not working
  • Request metadata from Google Scholar
  • Improved PDF Metadata Extraction Dialog
  • Components sometimes leave the visible area of the wizard
