This is a call for betatesting.
A new release of JabRef is estimated to drop Friday 2023-01-06.
The decision to release JabRef 5.9 so soon after JabRef 5.8, was taken, because some regressions have been found (and fixed) that seemed important enough to warrant an early release.
- deb v. 5.8 is not installable on Debian · Issue #9472 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub
- Error in 5.8 on bibtex library with doubled braces in booktitle (@InCollection) · Issue #9475 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub
- Selecting an entry InProceedings causes an uncaught exception · Issue #9503 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub
Even though the last release has been very recent, there have already been other changes, fixes and additions, which might warrant an upgrade. Check out the pre-release changelog.
