version 1.2e
 - Adjustments to biblatex version 0.8b. Note that from 
   this version on biblatex 0.8b is required, so you have to
   update biblatex as well if you would like to use 
   biblatex-dw 1.2e!
   -> The new biblatex option 'usetranslator' is supported.
 - BUGFIX: The option 'firstfullname' introduced in version
   1.2d had a bug which is now fixed.
 - BUGFIX: The 'idem' functionality did not work with the 
   multicite commands. This is now fixed.
 - New option 'journumafteryear': If set to 'true', the 
   'number' in article entries is printed after the year and
   introduced by the bibstring 'number'. If set to 'false',
   the default behaviour is used, i.e. 'Journaltitle 
   volume.number (year)'. The default is 'true'.

   year in @article entries is omitted.
 - The multicite command \cites is now also always printed 
   as footnote in 'footnote-dw'.
 - Some changes in the internal code.
 - Extended the documentation and examples.
