Software notes for Thomistica.NET readers

Just a few notes of interest to visitors about software that I use or am testing.

  • The people who produce the bibliography management program, Endnote, have released Endnote 9.0. I use this program (as well as Reference Manager 11). Time to upgrade?
  • One of my favorite sites when I’m writing or reading other languages (including Latin) is, which has a fine on-line conjugator. They have just released the downloadable version, 7.0, which makes things much easier. The list of improvements is:

    • Plenty of new languages: Russian, Polish, Sanskrit, Hebrew, etc.
    • Issues corrected in existing languages.
    • Custom verbtables option: design your own look and feel for verbtables.
    • Reports (language lists, language trees.)
    • Maps.
    • Smoother verb tables & print preview.
    • More comprehensive on-line help.
    • Improved handling of Verbix language extensions.
    • More information about languages.
    • Better Windows XP compatibility
  • Microsoft Corporation has decided to release another version of Internet Explorer. It will be named Internet Explorer 7.0, and will attempt to catch up to the features that you can currently get with’s very fine Firefox program (e.g., built-in RSS support, tabbed-browsing, phishing protection). I just downloaded the first beta of the program (for testing Thomistica.NET), and am very pleased. Doubtless you’ll be interested in the released product, down the road.

Please feel free to comment on this news item or to send me a comment about software that you use that you think would help others.
