October 2009 : a new release (bibus 1.5.0)
- OOo3.1 compatibility
- Infinite number of file/http links
- Clever capitalization (lord of war => Lord of War ...)
- Better handling of journal abbreviations
- Import/Export filters can be added easily (plugin)
- journal abbreviations and shortcuts can be easily edited (simple csv file that can be edited in OOo/excel or a text editor)
- Lot of bug fixes
- Requires python2.5 (not a problem anymore under Windows since OOo3.1 includes 2.6)
- Requires wxpython-2.8

I think it would be nice if the maintainer would include the documentation in this wiki. That way it would be easier to update it. The documentation seems to be outdated.
Bibus under Mandriva ...
I've made my best to get bibus working flawlessly in Mandriva.
On 2007.0, 2007.1 and 2008.0 (the latest release), this is just a matter of 'urpmi bibus', either in 32 bits and 64 bits editions ...
I'm OK to provide a more detailed information if needed, but i'd like to see the command on the top page, with a pointer to another page where i would have the rights to complete the description (with troubleshootings section).
Bibus under Arch Linux
3 Jan 2008
Modified a PKGBUILD from the Arch User Repository for Bibus 1.4 and built and installed without problems.
Had a lot of problems getting it to connect to OpenOffice until I found a post on the bibus forum about lowering the macro security level in addition to the already documented acceptance of running the macros contained in the uno connection template file:
From OpenOffice select Tools->Options->General->Security->Macros
Downgrade the security level to medium or low and then follow the connection instructions when running the bibus connection wizard (either on first run or from the help menu).
Restart OpenOffice and test the connection. Hopefully it has worked for you.
the page is created
I have created a page and a link on the top page: Instuctions for Installing on Mandriva and ArchLinux. Please update the documentation.
It would be nice to attach files to references, to keep full text version of the article by exemple. Would it be possible in a future edition of bibus ? Thank you.
it is already possible by using the url field
