PubMed2XL 2.0 now available for download

PubMed2XL 2.0 is now available.

You can read the documentation and download the newest version here.

There are a few notable changes to the graphical user interface (GUI) and lots of huge changes under the hood.

As far as the GUI the visible changes are as such:

  • You will now get notified by the software if a newer version of the software is available;
  • You can now turn the processing of book (non-journal) citations on/off;
  • You can toggle between Excel 2007 (.xls) and OpenDocument (.ods) output;
  • You can now save your preferences;
  • You can inspect a stylesheet and see the column title names before selecting that stylesheet;
  • … and there's even a simple logo (below) thanks to klukeart's icon on IconArchive.

And for programmers there is now a "pm2xl.py" Python library that has lots of functions that I hope might be useful for folks. The GUI is now built on top of the library so there's a clear separation of concerns between data processing functions and user interface. Non-Python programmers can also call the library functions via the command line.

OK, here's the logo (made with Inkscape):

I'd also like to say congrats to Andy Murray for winning Wimbledon today!
