  • Easier import of citation styles
    • In the 'Get More Styles' tab of the citation style browser, there is now a facility to paste a link to a style and Mendeley will download and install the style.
    • Support for mendeley:// links which open a citation style in Mendeley Desktop when clicked.
  • Search improvements
    • Search behavior is now consistent between the citation editor and Mendeley Desktop.
    • Search behavior is now consistent between document details and full text search.

    • The limitations on searching for single character terms and certain common words have been removed.
    • The search view will now show snippets from any matching field (eg. URLs, DOI, citation key, institution) rather than just abstract, tags and notes.
