# CTAN Update: biblatex-dw

Date: November 21, 2011 7:29:59 PM CET
On Sun, 20 Nov 2011 Dominik Waßenhoven submitted an update to the biblatex-dw package. Summary description: Humanities styles for biblatex License type: lppl Announcement text: Yes
version 1.4 This version of biblatex-dw was tested with biblatex 1.7 and requires at least version 1.6 of biblatex. - BUGFIX: With @review entries cited by \fullcite or \footfullcite the reviewed work was not printed in full. This is now fixed. - BUGFIX: With "shorthandinbib=true" and "terselos=false", the shorthand was printed twice in the list of shorthands. This is now fixed. - The \smartcite commands introduced by biblatex 1.2 are now supported. - The \textcite and \textcites commands are now also supported by footnote-dw. - New command \textcitesdelim: delimiter between author names when using \textcites. The default is: \addspace\bibstring{and}\space - New option "seriesformat" which can take the values "standard" and "parens". If set to "parens", the series of a book etc. will be printed in parentheses, otherwise without (as is the biblatex standard behaviour). The default value for this option is "parens" (as was the behaviour in earlier biblatex-dw versions). - New option "editorstringfont" which can take the values "normal" and "namefont". With "normal", the normal font is used, with "namefont", the setting for the option "namefont" is also used for the editor string (and translator string etc.). The default value for this option is "normal". - New option "editionstring": If set to "true", the bibliography string "edition" will be added to the "edition" field, even if it is not an integer. Thus, you can type, e.g., edition = {2., aktualisierte} in your bib file and you will get "2., aktualisierte Aufl." (or, with option abbreviate=false: "2., aktualisierte Auflage"). "editionstring=false" will give biblatex’s default behaviour. The default for this option is "false". - New entry option "oldbookauthor" which is equivalent to "oldauthor" but for the bookauthor (this is useful for @inbook entries representing, e.g., an introduction to an edition of a work by an author that should not be typeset in the usual font for last names). This option can be set on a per entry basis and can be disabled with the global option "oldauthor=false". - Improved options "namefont", "firstnamefont", "idemfont" and "ibidemfont" which are now aware of the setting of the biblatex option "punctfont". - Small bugfix for the xref functionality.

## biblatex-dw – Humanities styles for BibLaTeX

A small collection of styles for the Bib package. It was designed for citations in the humanities and offers some features that are not provided by the standard Bib styles. The styles are dependent on Bib (at least version 0.9b) and cannot be used without it.
