Dear Biblioscape Users,

The first release of Biblioscape 7 beta version has been made available at For a more detailed description of Biblioscape 7 beta release, please go to

Installation: For the beta release, we didn't package files inside a standard Windows installer. Instead, all required files are inside a self-extracting WinZip file. You can just run bsp7.exe and unzip it to an empty folder. To run it, double click the Biblioscape.exe file. To remove it, delete the Biblioscape folder.

History: Since the development is still in the beta stage, we will not give a detailed bug fix list and minor feature improvements list. We will do that after a formal release. This release fixed all the bugs reported at the beta forum (

Upgrade: If you have already installed a previous alpha or beta release, please delete the "Biblioscape 7 Beta" folder first before running the installation. If you want to use a database created with Biblioscape 5 or 6, please read the Upgrade section at for the details. If you have an earlier Biblioscape 7 alpha or beta release, You can no longer open the database created with earlier alpha or beta release. You have to do the upgrade conversion of version 5 and 6 databases again.

Support: You are welcome to make suggestions and report bugs at the Biblioscape Beta forum ( We prefer you use the forum instead of email for bug reports and feature requests, so our communication can benefit others and provoke further feedbacks. Please post all issues with running alpha and beta releases at the Beta forum instead of other forums.
