[prMac.com] Third Street Software, Inc. today announced the release of Sente 5, a major update to the popular academic reference management software. Sente 5 includes an updated interface, a new relational database engine, and significantly enhanced bibliography formatting features.
The main window in Sente 5 has been completely reworked, and includes a new reference editor / viewer that can be easily customized to best fit the needs of the user. The new reference editor enables users to work with just the details they need, whether they are in molecular biology or comparative literature.
The underlying storage engine has been replaced in Sente 5 to better support large libraries. On an Intel-based Mac with 1GB RAM, Sente can now handle libraries with tens of thousands of references with good performance.
For bibliographies, Sente 5 incorporates a number of important changes that result in improved versions of APA, Chicago and other common formats. Sente can also now scan RTF files so users are no longer limited to working with MS Word and Mellel. Sente's MS Word plug-in also now supports citations in footnotes (this was already supported in Mellel).
"This is the most important update to Sente yet." said Michael Stevens, of Third Street Software. "We wanted to bring important new features to our existing users as well as to add features that would make Sente more useful to users in the humanities."
System requirements: Sente 5 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. 1GB RAM (or more) is recommended. Sente is a Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel Macs.
Sente 5 is a free upgrade to users who originally purchased a license for Sente 4. The upgrade costs $39.95 for people who originally purchased licenses for Sente 1, 2 or 3.
A standard, single-user license for Sente can be purchased for USD $129.95. Academic licenses are available for USD $89.95.
A fully-functional, 30-day demonstration version of Sente can be downloaded from www.ThirdStreetSoftware.com.
