Status Update – JabRef

As mentioned in this blog post here for the end of hacktoberfest, I was working on an issue we were having with JPackage for JabRef. After quite a lot of experimentation and back and forth between the maintainers of JabRef, we managed to come up with a solution that allowed for the compilation of the .msi installer for windows. Even so, the solution did not come without it’s own problems. As we managed to make the gradlew build finally compile the msi, the msi itself did not actually work with the directory chooser. Removing such temporarily ended up being the temporary solution as we wait for bug fixes that we had found in JPackage to be pushed upstream so it can be reenabled at a later date. But for now, JPackage is back to being functionally included within JabRef, and now I can go back to work on what the issue was originally supposed to be at some point.

The issue can be viewed here, and the PR can be viewed here.
