This package contains a small collection of styles for the biblatex package.  
It was designed for citations in the humanities and offers some features that 
are not provided by the standard biblatex styles.  Biblatex-dw is dependent on 
biblatex (at least version 0.7) and cannot be used without it.

Summary description: Humanities styles for biblatex
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
 - BUGFIX: With the option 'idem=false', the author of a 
   first citation who was cited immediately before with 
   another work lacked the forename.
 - BUGFIX: The option 'edbyidem=false' produced a 
   superfluous 'ed. by'; string.
 - BUGFIX: Small punctuation issue with repeated 
   citations and 'herename'. 
 - New option 'namefont' which can take the values 
   'smallcaps', 'italic' and 'bold'. The default is none, 
   i.e. authors and editors are set in normal font shape. 
   With 'useprefix=true', this option also affects the 
   name prefix.
 - New option 'firstnamefont' which can take the values 
   'smallcaps', 'italic' and 'bold'. This also affects
   the name prefix (with 'useprefix=false') and the name 
 - The option 'oldauthor' is now also available as global 
   option in order to disable the feature. If you set 
   'oldauthor=false' globally, every entry option 
   'oldauthor=true' is ignored. Thus, you can set the 
   fontname for every author with global options, 
   independent of entry options.
