iatheia, thanks for your response.
Question: when we hit the astro-ph button and the blank window appears (the one that states "paper url(s), one per line"), do we manually add the urls of the papers we are interested to download?
If the answer is "yes", then both the previous version of the plugin as well the new version, are ok. I just added a url and downloaded a cosmology paper.
Yesterday I thought that the plugin would "automatically" show me the papers and all I had to do then was to select which one I am interested to download etc.
Let me know, please,
