Zotero 1.5 beta

    I've just moved to beta version 1.5 of Zotero. It was a trial.

    • My database wouldn't convert, so I had to upload it to their db repair tool.
    • Upgrading the Word add-in irrevocably changes your documents so you can't go back to 1.0. That isn't a problem in its self, but it looked as if the upgrade was hanging—it took 20 minutes to upgrade a 144 page, 220 reference document.
    • The sync option often gives errors … but it always manages to sync in the end.

    Now, all I have to do is figure out how to use webdav with Amazon's S3 to back up all my PDF files (Yes, I know I could use Jungle Disk, but I like my solutions more open source than that (generally)).

    Anyway, it is working fine now and its nice to be able to share my bibliography.

    If you webmention this page, please let me know the URL of your page.

    BTW: Your webmention won't show up until I next "build" my site.

    Word count: 200 (about 1 minutes)
