Announcement text: 
version 1.2i
 - BUGFIX: When using option 'usetranslator=true', the 
   translator string was not aware of the option 
   'editorstring'. This is now fixed.
 - Improved bibmacro 'journal+issuetitle' which is now aware 
   of the option 'edbeforetitle'.
 - The 'typeeditor' field is now supported. It can take the 
   values 'editor' and 'compiler'. This field determines the 
   editor string after the name of the editor(s). The 
   abbreviated forms are 'ed.' for 'editor' and 'comp.' for 
   'compiler'. In German, both strings are the same 
   ('Herausgeber' or 'Hrsg.').
 - In English, the 'idem' string is now declined (idem, 
   eadem, idem in singular; eidem, eaedem, eadem in plural) 
   and no longer abbreviated, even if abbreviate=true is 
 - Improved the handling of 'origfields=true'.
 - In German, the string 'reprint' (Nachdruck) is now 
   abbreviated as 'Ndr.', not as 'Nachdr.'
 - Compound abbreviations are now separated by a thin space 
   rather than a normal one. At the moment, this affects 
   only the German localization in strings like 'hg. v.'
