The upgrade of a B.9 database to B.11 although it took some time went without a hitch, although it required attention to action the B.10 and B.11 request boxes.
Having inadvertently ended up with both a B.8 and a B.9 database, testing the upgrade to B.11 has been additionally useful in identifying that Biblioscape allows the addition of reference types without re-creating them within Biblioscape itself. Needless to say this does not arise during an ordinary upgrade as Biblioscape does all the work during the automated process.
1. Copy the relevant reference type .txt file from a Biblioscape installation 'reftypes' folder to the B.11 'reftypes' folder.
2. Update the refTypes.txt file in the B.11 installation to include the name of the added reference type. This is probably a good opportunity to re-arrange existing reference types in alphabetical order.
This works between B.8 and B11 but it is not known how it will fare with other Biblioscape installations.
