This should be at your local mirror. Jim Hef{}feron Saint Michael's College ........................................................................ Update summary: ........................................................................ This version should be used with biblatex 0.9c Most notable changes in this update: * Biber::BibTeX moved to Biber::Input::BibTeX. If upgrading, please remove your installed <perl lib>/Biber/BibTeX.pm * New aliases for EPRINT classes and types implemented (see BibLaTeX docs) * Biber now resolves XREFs as well as CROSSREFs so one less LaTeX pass is needed * Allows UTF-8 citekeys. Requires Text::BibTeX >= 0.46 and a fully Unicode-aware engine (XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX). * RecDescent parser is no longer supported or included. If upgrading, please remove your installed <perl lib>/Biber/BibTeX directory * Now requires LaTeX::Decode >= 0.03 * Stricter version dependency for Text::BibTeX. Older than 0.42 is rather useless for complex names. * Re-factored and enhanced auto-re-encoding of .bib/.bbl. With biblatex 0.9c, Biber handles all reencoding. * Misc bug fixes ........................................................................ Basic package information, as sent by the contributor.

biber – A replacement for users of Bib

Biber is a replacement for users of Bib.

Biber supports full UTF-8, can (re)-encode input and output, supports highly configurable sorting, dynamic bibliography sets and many other features.

The CTAN distribution offers a compressed tar archive of the sources, etc., together with “binary” distributions for a variety of platforms.

Note: on SourceForge biber is formally named “biblatex-biber”, to distinguish it from an earlier (now apparently moribund) project called “biber”.
