On Fri, 13 Jun 2008 Dominik Wassenhoven submitted an update to the


package, 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.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/exptl/biblatex-contrib/biblatex-dw/
Summary description: Humanities styles for biblatex
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
 - BUGFIX: The option 'edbeforetitle' caused a problem
   when used together with the 'idem' functionality
   (which is the default). This is now fixed. 
 - Enhanced the 'idem' functionality: If a citation with 
   shorthand precedes a citation of the same author or 
   editor without shorthand, the string 'idem' is now 
   replaced by the author's or editor's name, since this
   information cannot be gathered from the shorthand 
   citation and thus could mislead the reader.

This package is located at

(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload.
