New features for May 1.

We're working on improving the publications import procedure with the assistance of the library group at the Chancellor's Office. When we complete this feature, Fresca will be able to automatically find and painlessly import your publications from a large number of citation databases. We'll have more on this in the near future.
In the meantime, we've pushed a number of smaller updates and improvements. These changes are largely around the publications area and are in preparation for the report, CV, and biosketch generation features we're working on.
We've added the ability to mark publications as refereed; in the future, you'll be able to use this flag to help select publications for generating reports and documents. Information about which publications are refereed is currently not visible to anyone but you. (We've marked all publications as refereed to start with, but will be refining this in the near future. In the meantime, you can turn off the refereed flag for any publication by editing it and un-checking the refereed publication box towards the bottom of the page.) You can also now hide particular publications so that they do not appear for other people viewing your profile page. You can also annotate student co-authors of your publications. We do not show information about student co-authors to anyone else, but it will be able to be included in reports you generate in the future.
As a final note, we'd like to thank COAST for hosting us at their meeting today, and for all of their great feedback on Fresca.
