Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

From v.5.0.36, Zotero has a new engine for extracting metadata from PDFs; see:

https://www.zotero.org/blog/zotero-5-0-36/

Please can Citoid be updated to use this version, or a later one (at the time of writing, 5.0.37 has just been released)?

Unfortunately, we can't do that, due to existing restrictions in running Zotero as a server-side service (c.f. T187194 for more context on this). As a matter of fact, we are contemplating removing Zotero altogether, c.f. T93579: Restructure so that citoid can be run without Zotero.
