CTAN update: biblatex-oxref

Alex Ball submitted an update to the biblatex-oxref package. Version number: 0.12 2018-03-03 License type: lppl1.3c Summary description: BibLaTeX styles inspired by the Oxford Guide to Style Announcement text:
All being well, this should be the last of the experimental releases (not counting bug fix releases). Changes since v0.11.3: - **Breaking change:** titles of `suppbook` entries are now in quotation marks by default; the inverted commas must be removed by using the `descriptor` annotation or field, in common with other entry types. - **Breaking change:** the punctuation before a ‘by Author’ statement is now configurable, and defaults to a space instead of a comma. - Explicit handling has been added for entry types `suppperiodical`, `suppcollection`, `booklet`, `patent`, `standard`, `artwork`, `performance`, and `letter`, and examples for these have been added to the documentation. The `image` entry type uses the new `artwork`/`performance` driver instead of `online`. - The `altthesis` option has been deprecated in favour of new option `thesis`, which takes values `in` (`altthesis = true`), `out` (`altthesis = false`) and `plain` (no parentheses at all). - The `varissuedate` option has been renamed `issuedate-plain`, to match `court-plain`. - There is a new `bookseries` option which takes values `in` and `out` with the same logic as the `thesis` option. - The `mergedate` option can now be set on a per-type basis. Some bugs in the `maximum` and `compact` variants have been fixed. - There is a new `nonodate` option for suppressing ‘n.d.’ when an entry in `oxalph`/`oxyear` has no suitable date label. It is automatically activated on a per-entry basis if a `sortyear` is given. - It is now possible to annotate a date as `inferred` to enclose it in square brackets. - Various edge-case formatting bugs have been fixed.

biblatex-oxref – Bib styles inspired by the Oxford Guide to Style

This bundle provides four Bib styles that implement (many of) the stipulations and examples provided by the 2014 New Hart’s Rules and the 2002 Oxford Guide to Style:

  • ‘oxnotes’ is a style similar to the standard ‘verbose’, intended for use with footnotes;
  • ‘oxnum’ is a style similar to the standard ‘numeric’, intended for use with numeric in-text citations;
  • ‘oxalph’ is a style similar to the standard ‘alphabetic’, intended for use with alphabetic in-text citations;
  • ‘oxyear’ is a style similar to the standard ‘author-year’, intended for use with parenthetical in-text citations.

The bundle provides support for a wide variety of content types, including manuscripts, audiovisual resources, social media and legal references.

These styles should be considered experimental. In particular, the ways in which they handle certain tricky references are subject to change.
