Zotero 2.0 Release Candidates

Yesterday, Zotero 2.0 moved from beta into its first and second release candidate versions. If you have yet to try Zotero, you may download it or view the video introduction from their homepage. At this point, Society of Biblical Literature Handbook of Style support is still under development, but even so, Zotero does provide a fairly good approximation that can be tweaked here and there with reasonable ease.

Also, with the recent release of Google Chrome 4 and its “full” extension support, my curiosity was renewed about whether a Google Chrome port of Zotero might be feasible so that Zotero could take advantage of Chrome’s improved JavaScript engine. Yet, Chrome’s extension system apparently does not provide the necessary support for some key, Zotero features. So, Zotero will remain tied to Firefox for the foreseeable future and will continue seeing the benefits of future JavaScript engine improvements as have also already been made for Firefox 3.5 and 3.6.
