2.0.7 (Feb/3/2022)
A serious bug was fixed, where the horizontal divider beween the article list and the article detail could be accidentally hidden behind the top toolbar. (Reported by M. Shigemori and P. Turkine)
The search bar can now be reached by typing ⌘-F (Requested by M. Shigenori)
2.0.6.1 (Nov/17/2021)
An extremely stupid but visible bug introduced in 2.0.6 was fixed
2.0.6 (Nov/16/2021)
Minor visual tweaks for Big Sur and later
2.0.5 (Oct/24/2021)
Fixed a stupid but serious bug where the app refused to connect to the inspire web server, because old.inspirehep.net was finally discontinued last week. Thank you very much for everyone who reported the issue.
2.0.4 (Jan/25/2021)
Reordered toolbar icons on Big Sur; a small bug fix reported by Suzuki-kun.
2.0.3 (Nov/30/2020)
It is now compiled also for Apple Silicon, although I do not have it yet. If you are an Apple Silicon user and find some problem, please do report it to me!
2.0.2 (Nov/23/2020)
You can drag & drop a PDF to the article info view to register it again. This basic feature was broken in 2.0.0 due to my code change to modernize the internals. I'd like to thank Nori Iizuka to catch it.
2.0.1 (Nov/12/2020)
You can copy & paste from the article info view again. This basic feature was broken in 2.0.0 due to a conflict of a latest change with a line of code remaining from 2009. I'd like to thank Boris Pioline to catch it.
2.0.0 (Nov/12/2020)
Minimal Big Sur support. The major version number increase from 1.9.9 to 2.0.0 does not mean anything significant, just as the jump from Catalina 10.15 to Big Sur 11 does not mean much.
1.9.9 (Nov/4/2020)
"refers to" should really work now, which stopped working since 1.9.6.
1.9.8 (Nov/1/2020)
Fixes a bug where trying to create a "playlist" in the sidebar caused a crash, introduced due to an ongoing rewrite to adapt to Big Sur.
1.9.7 (Oct/30/2020)
Fixes a major bug where "cited by" and "refers to" of pre-arxiv articles didn't work. I don't know when this bug was introduced; most probably it was in the 1.9.0 rewrite in June 2020.
1.9.6 (Oct/19/2020)
Fixes a bug introduced in 1.9.5, where you couldn't get new bibtex entries.
1.9.5 (Oct/18/2020)
The cancel button is finally back! Just click 🅧 in the blinking message bubble in the bottom-right corner. As I'm making many internal changes, things which used to work might be broken. Please do not hesitate to write to me if you find something.
1.9.4 (August/26/2020)
Fixes another major bug introduced by the rewrite: "cited by" with more than 50 papers wasn't working. Sad!
1.9.3 (July/5/2020)
Fixes another minor bug introduced by the rewrite: old papers not on the arXiv should now be sorted more appropriately.
1.9.2 (June/23/2020)
Fixes another major bug introduced by the rewrite: Looking up citations of a paper should work more reliably. I'm sorry for the messes.
1.9.1 (June/22/2020)
Fixes a major bug introduced by the rewrite: Looking up references of a paper should work again.
1.9.0 (June/17/2020)
The internal is modified so that this app continues to work with the new inspire hep webpage and api. There might be new bugs introduced by this change. If you find any, please do not hesitate to write to Yuji.
1.8.8 (May/10/2020)
Bib manager now recognizes \cite[...]{...}; the context menu should show up correctly in Catalina; the latest version now runs on 10.10 and later.

Increased the maximum number of "arXiv/recents" to 999. Many thanks to Ben Gripaios for the suggestion!
1.6.2 (Apr/29/2015)
Fixed a bug introduced in 1.6.1. Internals are somewhat rewritten to better isolate object accesses from different threads. Hopefully it leads to less crashes.
1.6.1 (Mar/15/2015)
Supports multiple bib files of the form \bibliography{first,second,third}. New entries are written to first.bib. If you didn't know about the bib file management feature of this app, please go to the webpage and have a look at the third video!
1.6.0 (Jan/6/2015)
The previous update was not enough to cope with the new identifiers, due to the stupid reason that 20150100001 > 231. Changed internals to 64 bits.
1.5.9 (Dec/10/2014)
Updated the internals to cope with the new 1501.nnnnn identifiers; more fixes of bugs reported by Flip.

The app now looks better on laptops with higher-density (retina) displays.
1.5.3 (Oct/11/2013)
More bug fixes. My thanks go to Tomer and Luca for reporting them. Shift-return and reloading data from the inspire web server should now work more reliably. It should work on 10.9 Mavericks too.
1.5.2 (Sep/10/2013)
Bug fixes for 1.5.1. My sincere thanks go to Jure, Kin-ya, Micha, and as always, Ryo. Dear friends, please do tell me any bugs you found. That would save a lot of your colleagues' time eventually!
1.5.1 (Sep/7/2013)
Removed the live search feature, because it was too slow when the database file became ~100Mbytes. Other small changes. The internals are being renovated.
1.5.0 (Aug/28/2013)
Beta version distributed among several people, to prepare for 1.5.1.
1.4.9 (May/22/2012)
Bug fixes for the bibliography fetcher, due to the closure of the original SPIRES website. (thanks to Joe Minahan for reporting.)

Bug fixes.
1.4.0 (Apr/1/2011)
Now supports the Inspire database as the backend.
1.3.3 (Sep/6/2010)
One bug fix so that you can read today's hep-th. Stricly speaking, the bug is on the arxiv server: the XHTML file it serves states it uses UTF8, but in reality the abstract of an entry was in Latin-1. This confused my app. Alas. (Sep/7: the admin of the arxiv corrected the database itself, so the version 1.3.2 will work. But you're encouraged to update it anyway.)
1.3.2 (Aug/31/2010)
Many small bug fixes. Incorporates the better pseudo-TeX'ing code by Suzuki-kun. Includes a Safari Extension.
1.3.1 (Mar/29/2010)
Fixed a stupid bug which prevented the app to look up & download old journal articles automatically. Thanks to N. Iizuka.

A critical bug fix, surfaced due to the change in the APS website.

Bug fixes
1.0 (Mar/6/2009)
This update will upgrade the database format and there is no going back.

0.92 (Feb/1/2009)
Incorporated some suggestions. (bibtex query, arxiv/replacements etc.) It involved a rather massive rewrite; maybe some bugs have been introduced. Please report if you find any.

0.85 (Oct/28/2008)
Bug Fixes & Back/Forward button.
0.84 (Oct/27/2008)
Bug Fixes. (Reloading arxiv now really reloads clearing web caches. Behavior of "a" was also corrected. My sloppy coding starts to slow down the response of the app once there are more than 3000 entries in the database... Maybe I need to clean up the code and optimize. Ugh.)
0.83 (Oct/26/2008)
Bug Fixes. cited by.
