Third Street Software has released
Sente 1.2, the company announced on Wednesday. The upgrade to the company’s library and database search tool adds support for the Z39.50 protocol, which is used by many scientific and academic libraries and databases. This change allows Ovid subscribers to search such databases as Books in Print, CAB Abstracts, Current Contents, Dissertation Abstracts, EMBASE, PsychINFO and others. Existing users can download the new version for free, while new ones can try out the application for 30 days before paying the US$79.95 ($49.95 for educational users) license fee. Sente requires Mac OS X v10.2 or higher.
