Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2017-06-19 18:49:22 UTC
A very important feature in jabref-3.8.2 is broken, unfortunately:

It is not possible to add papers by using a doi.

There are two solution for the gentoo users:
a) a very small patch (server URL changed) for a source based jabref version
b) a bump to the app-text/jabref-bin-4.x version.

Unfortunately 4.x is still beta and has still many open issues.

For the latest Java dependencies read

JabRef is released

So we can make version bump for app-text/jabref-bin
Comment 2 Nicolas Bock gentoo-dev 2017-10-09 11:44:02 UTC
I added jabref-bin-4.0 to tree.

Please open another ticket if this is still an issue.
