We are excited to announce the launch of Zotero 1.0 Release Candidate 2. This release adds many new features.
Zotero now offers full-text indexing of PDFs, adding your archived PDFs to the searchable text in your collection.
Zotero’s integration with word processing tools has been greatly improved. The MS Word plugin works much more seamlessly and we now support OpenOffice on Windows, Mac (in the form of NeoOffice), and Linux.
Zotero is also now better integrated with the desktop. Users can drag files from their desktop into their Zotero collection and can also drag attachments out of their Zotero collection onto their desktop.
The new version of CSL (Citation Style Language), used by Zotero to format references into specific styles, is more human readable and easier to edit. We will be adding many more styles soon.
Users should also notice some performance enhancements. Zotero now runs smoother on Windows and Linux.
Stay tuned for more detailed information on these developments. We will post more documentation and screencasts about these features in the next few weeks. We have also added support for a host of additional web resources:

We have added support for an array of additional sites and databases. Zotero can now automatically capture bibliographic information from even more library catalogs, science databases, and news sites.
Check out how easy it is to capture bibliographic information from the sites below.
We are diligently working to support other sites, catalogs, and databases. If there are other sites that Zotero does not currently support that you believe would be valuable to other Zotero users, you can suggest them in this thread, or you can pitch in and develop a site translator yourself.
