Firefox 2.0 went out of beta today, with the final release available from Mozilla. So those who have been hesitant to use Zotero with a beta browser can now go forth and download. If you’re still worrying about your other Firefox extensions and whether they are compatible with Firefox 2.0, please read “3 Ways to Make Old Extensions Compatible with Firefox 2.0.” If you’re using Internet Explorer, why not try out the latest and greatest Firefox and see what you’ve been missing (including a certain extension that will make your research easier…).
Speaking of Zotero, with the release of Firefox 2.0 we are releasing our own update, which is now available to all users, including those who have already installed Zotero as well as new users. Version 1.0.0b2.r2 of Zotero adds some great features (thanks for the suggestions, beta testers!), like support for automatic spell checking in notes, the ability to create notes via text selection on web pages, and buttons to select/deselect all items when saving multiple items from a web page, as well as a lot of bug fixes, stability enhancements, and import/export and citation style fixes. Please see the release notes for a full list of changes.
