It is better to ask -- what happens to Paul Chen?

Biblioscape v11 status

The status of Biblioscape v11 concerned me and I wrote to sales@biblioscape.com on 11/8/2017, but have yet to receive a reply. I requested advice on whether it had been formally released as I was interested in upgrading, but didn’t want to buy it and then find I couldn’t register it.

You are probably aware that v11 is available from http://www.biblioscape.com/v11/download.html.

The key you get after the

The key you get after the purcahse will register version 11 fine.

Released?

Paul, does this mean that v11 has been released? Or is it still a beta?

Given that it has some table changes and might lead to some unpredictable consequences, the transfer process is not trivial and will require redesign of custom styles, shifting of data between fields in existing records, etc. A substantial investment of labor. Thus, some clarity on the status of this version and on the future prospects would be very useful. Thank you.

Version 11 is no longer in

Version 11 is no longer in beta. It has minimum database structure changes. You can export your custom styles from an earlier version and import them into version 11. Same for the custom import filters.

Thanks, good to hear, even

Thanks, good to hear, even though I see that the version is still 11.00.00...

Unfortunately, the transfer is not that easy as I use existing fields to hold the data now intended to go to the new fields such as Trans_authors and existing custom styles that are now also covered by the new styles. So, some integration and shifting of data between fields will be necessary.

To clarify, when I shall open an existing 10 database in 11, no data will be modified?
What happens if some of my custom Reference Types have the exact same names as the new Reference Types? What do I rename?

Any general advice on integration?

When a version 10 database

When a version 10 database is opened in version 11, only new fields (Trans_authors, Trans_title, Date_accessed) will be added, existing data will not be modified. You have to redo your custom reference types in version 11. because database structure changes, reference type files cannot be simply copied from an older version to a new version. It has to be redone in version 11 manually. For Word integration, please unload the old version 10 addin dll first befor you add the new version 11 add-in dll in Word.
