Summary description: Humanities styles for biblatex
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
 - Improved option 'edsuper' which also outputs non-integer 
   editions (though not as superscript, but rather similar 
   to a note.) 
 - The field 'origpublisher' (new in biblatex 0.8) is now
   also supported.
 - New option 'origfields' which can take the values 'true' 
   (standard) and 'false'. With this option, you can now 
   decide, whether you want to have the fields 
   'origlocation', 'origpublisher' and 'origyear' to be 
   printed or not.
   -> New option 'origfieldsformat=parens|brackets|punct'. 
      The default is 'punct' which means that the new 
      punctuation mark '\origfieldspunct' (default: 
      \addcomma\space) is used  to introduce the reprint 
      phrase. If you choose 'parens' or 'brackets', the 
      reprint phrase is put in parentheses or brackets, 
      respectively, and the \origfieldspunct is ignored.
 - New option 'shorthandwidth'. With this option you can set 
   the width of the label in the list of shorthands to any 
   length (e.g. '3em' or '40pt'). This is useful if you have 
   very long shorthands.
   -> New punctuation command '\shorthandpunct' which is 
      only exerted when you use the option 'shorthandwidth'. 
      Then it is set to a colon. You can redefine this 
      punctuation command with \renewcommand.
   -> New length '\shorthandsep' which is only exerted if 
      you use the option 'shorthandwidth'. The length 
      '\shorthandsep' defines the spacing after the label in 
      the list of shorthands. 
 - Improved package warnings.
