Announcement text: 
version 1.2f
 - Adjustments to biblatex version 0.8c. Note that from 
   this version on biblatex 0.8c is required, so you have to
   update biblatex as well if you would like to use 
   biblatex-dw 1.2f!
   -> The biblatex-dw option 'idem' was replaced by the new
      biblatex option 'idemtracker'. The standard setting is
      'idemtracker=constrict'. If you would like to switch 
      off the idem functionality, you can use 
      'idemtracker=false'. For more information on the 
      'idemtracker' option see the biblatex manual.
 - New options 'doi', 'eprint', 'isbn' and 'issn' which can 
   take the values 'true' and 'false'. With these options 
   you can decide whether you want to have printed the 
   corresponding fields or not. The default for these 
   options is 'false' (as was the standard before). 
 - New option 'idemfont' which can take the values 
   'smallcaps', 'italic', 'bold' and 'normal'. The default 
   is none which means that the 'idem' string is printed in 
   the font shape of 'namefont'. 
 - New option 'ibidemfont' which can take the values 
   'smallcaps', 'italic' and 'bold'. The default is none 
   which means that the 'ibidem' string is printed in normal 
   font shape.   
 - New macro 'jourvolstring' which introduces the volume of
   an article entry. The default is a space (as it was the
   case before), but you can adjust it to your needs, e.g.:
   \renewcommand*{\jourvolstring}{\addspace vol\adddot\space}
 - New macro 'journumstring' which introduces the number in
   article entries, if the option 'journumafteryear' is set
   to 'true'. The default for this macro is a comma, 
   followed by the bibstring 'number' and a non-breakable 
   space. You can redefine it to your needs, e.g.:
 - If there is no volume in an article entry, but the month
   field is set, the date is separated from the journal 
   title by a comma and a space, not only a space.
 - Fixed some BUGS concerning the xref functionality. 
 - Reorganized some bibliography drivers.
 - Enhanced the documentation.
