Announcement text: 
version 1.2k
This version brings a lot new stuff. Please have a look into the
file 'CHANGES' for details. The most important things are:
 - Adjustments to biblatex version 0.8e. Note that from this 
   version on biblatex 0.8e is required, so you have to update 
   biblatex as well if you would like to use biblatex-dw 1.3!
 - BUGFIX: The option 'ibidpage' did not work with 
   footnote-dw. This is now fixed. 
 - Changed entry type @inreference
   Up to now, this entry type was an alias for 
   @incollection. From now on, this entry type can be used 
   for articles in encyclopedias or dictionaries.
 - New Options
   - 'isrn' and 'pagetotal'
     With these options you can decide whether you want to 
     have printed the corresponding fields or not. 
   - 'edstringincitations'
     If set to 'true', the editor and translator strings are 
     shown in the citations (not only in the full citations). 
   - 'series=standard|afteryear'
     If set to 'afteryear', the series is printed after the 
     year. This affects the entry types book, inbook, 
     collection, incollection, proceedings, inproceedings and 
 - New Commands 'seriespunct', 'sernumstring', and 'herenamepunct'
 - In German localization, the strings 'withcommentator', 
   'withannotator' and 'withintroduction' are shortened as 
   -> withcommentator: komm. v.
   -> withannotator: erläut. v.
   -> withintroduction: eingel. v.
   The long versions stay the same as in standard biblatex.
