Another Zotero Update

This is great news as reported by Dan Cohen: your Zotero data can now be synchronized across the net. That is, you can work on multiple computers and keep your Zotero data and notes in sync. They've also added rich text editing. Do note that this is a preview version with potential of loss of data. (So far so good for me.)
BUT... Thomson Reuters, makers of the commercial EndNote program, have filed suit against George Mason University claiming that Zotero has reverse engineered the coding for the bibliographic formatting. (The Zotero project is based at the University’s Center for History and New Media.) Here is the George Mason University official response. I'm cheering for Zotero and their open source approach on this one.
