<p>Finally, after several months of hard work, jLibrary beta3 is available.
jLibrary
has been initially developed by a <a
href="http://jlibrary.sourceforge.net/en/1/about.html">group of people
</a> (but currently I need many help!) after several months working. </p>
<p>The most important changes in this version are:</p>
<ul>
<li>A big repository reestructuration.</li>

<li>Most important libraries have been migrated to recent versions,
including
Eclipse 3.1, Hibernate 3.0, Axis 1.2.1, etc.</li>

<li>Working with resources is now easier and more intuitive.</li>
<li>There is an installer for Windows platforms.</li>
<li>There are support for automatic application updates.</li>
<li>There have been several improvements on the extraction and
indexation engine.</li>
<li>There is now support for drag&amp;drop and copy/paste, directly from
the
operating system.</li>

<li>Now is much more easy to download files directly from the web.</li>

<li>Several improvements on the help system.</li>
<li>And many more. Do not forget to <a
href="http://jlibrary.sourceforge.net/en/0/whatsnew_beta3.html">take a
look on the
new and noteworthy</a> to see more improvements.</li>
</ul>
<p></p>
<p>To download jLibrary, you only have to go to the <a
href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=95837">downloads
page </a>. Currently, there are two different versions: one for Windows
platform, tested against Windows XP and Windows2K, and another one for Linux
platforms with GTK installed. The recommended platform is Windows. This
recommendation it's only because Windows has been the platform used for
developing and testing, and so I suppose that jLibrary would be more stable in
this platform. </p>

<p>jLibrary user inerface is internationalized both in English and Spanish.
However, the indexation engine supports more than eleven different languages.
If you want to translate jLibrary user interface to another language (only one
resources file has to bee changed) <a href="mailto:mpermar@gmail.com">contact
with us </a> - well, you can also contact if you want to help with the project
:-)</p>

<p>After you have downloaded jLibrary, <a
href="http://jlibrary.sourceforge.net/en/0/install.html">remember to follow
the installation instructions</a>. jLibrary will run without any settings, but
be careful, reading this information is very important to do tasks as changing
the jLibrary backend database. </p>
<p>By default, jLibrary is configured to use <strong>HypersonicSQL</strong> as
database backend. Anyways, <strong>this is not the recommended database
engine</strong>.
HypersonicSQL it's included only to make jLibrary execution easier and
faster,
and also to provide a local storage system without the need of an
external database.
Actually, the <strong>recommended</strong> database engine is
<strong>MySQL</strong>.
You can also use PostgreSQL (but it hasn't been deeply tested). </p>

<p> Don't forget to this release <a
href="http://jlibrary.sourceforge.net/en/0/whatsnew_beta3.html">new and
noteworthy</a> changes. Also don't forget to <a
href="http://jlibrary.sourceforge.net/en/0/index.html">read the
documentation</a>, and to <a
href="http://jlibrary.sourceforge.net/en/2/index.html">read the tutorials</a>
(this is highly important). Also, don't forget that there is an online help, a
help presentation, an internal help with search support, and a bunch of
cheatsheets. All of this will help you to use this tool. </p>

<p>And finally, don't forget that this is a <strong>beta</strong> version.
jLibrary, as you will see, is a very big project, and so it will have lot of
little bugs. If for any reason you find some of this bug <a
href="mailto:mpermar@gmail.com">make us know about it </a>. By the way, have I
said that <strong>jLibrary is looking for collaborations</strong>? Yes, any
help would be good. Even for the most complex development things as for the
most simple things, like translation. </p>

<p>I really hope that you like jLibrary. </p>
