the snitchy little upload daemon whispered in my ear:

> 2. A new section describing how to use amsrefs to create a bibliography.

i've installed the new version, and updated the catalogue repository.
one small -- but important -- change to the catalogue entry (removing
the last paragraph of the description) was not committed last night, so
the web page will change again overnight tonight.
