Yes, I saw references to Zotero. My impression from the description on the
wiki page is that Zotero is a web-based application hosted elsewhere. I
prefer to keep my data locally, and JabRef-3.8.2 still works great on the
64-bit desktop and does what I need it to do. Another benefit: I've been
using JabRef for more than a decade so I'm very familiar with it.

Thanks for the suggestion,
