[EP-tech] Re: last additions rather than latest

Hello,

 From lib/defaultcfg/cfg.d/latest_tool.pl:

$c->{latest_tool_modes} = {
         default => { citation => "result" }
};

# Example of a latest_tool mode. This makes a mode=articles option
# which only lists eprints who's type equals "article".
#
#       articles => {
#               citation => undef,
#               filters => [
#                       { meta_fields => [ "type" ], value => "article" }
#               ],
#               max => 20
#       }


You can see the "default" mode uses the "result" citation (i.e. 
lib/citations/eprint/result.xml).

(but don't change this file directly, change your local copy in 
archives/<id>/cfg/cfg.d/latest_tool.pl instead).

Seb.
