New functionality:

- Analysis preview sidebar in the results list.  This feature enables you to browse scholarly works, patents, citing patents, and cited scholarly works analyses from your search results page before moving on to the full analysis page.
- Scholar Search Saved Queries.  In addition to being able to securely store patent search queries in your work area, now you can do the same with scholar search queries.
- Scholar Search Export.  This feature is available for logged in users.  Once you specify the format (CSV, RIS, BibTex, or JSON),  fields to be exported and label your export, a link will be emailed to you once the export process is complete.  In this first release, we offer an export size limit of 1,000 records in Scholarly search results page.
