Trouble in JabRef web search

I am using JabRef (JabRef 4.1,Windows 7 6.1 amd64, Java 1.8.0_144) for past few months only. However, for past 1 week, I am unable to fetch data from IEEEXplore using web search, and I am not able to fix it. Please guide. Attached: Error generated. (Internet is working absolutely fine, i checked.)


IEEE changed their APIs last week, which broke the JabRef fetcher. We are currently working on a fix, which should be released as part of 4.2.

OK. Thanks a lot.
Waiting for it.

It should be fixed now in the latest development version.
