On Mon, 15 Feb 2010 Dominik Wassenhoven submitted an update to the


package, a small collection of styles for the biblatex package.  It was designed 
for citations in the humanities and offers some features that are not provided 
by the standard biblatex styles.  Biblatex-dw is dependent on biblatex (at least 
version 0.8) and cannot be used without it.

Summary description: Humanities styles for biblatex
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
Version 1.2o
Note that this version is NOT COMPATIBLE WITH BIBLATEX 0.9!
 - BUGFIX: When using the options 'xref=true' and 
   'useeditor=false', the editor was not printed in the 
   bibliography. This is now fixed. Also, some bugs 
   regarding the xref functionality in citations could be 
 - BUGFIX: The editors in @incollection, @inproceedings and 
   @inreference entries were printed using the name format 
   'sortname' ('Lastname, Firstname') where it should have 
   been the name format 'byeditor' ('Firstname Lastname'). 
   This is now fixed.   
 - New option 'omiteditor': If one uses 'useeditor=false' 
   and 'omiteditor=true', the editor in citations will be 
   omitted. The same applies to the xref functionality in 
   the bibliography. With 'useeditor=true', this option has 
   no effect. The standard for this option is 'false'.
 - The limitation regarding the combination of 'xref=true', 
   'edbyidem=true' and 'useeditor=false' is no longer valid.
   That means, it is not necessary to have the editor in the 
   child entry as well in order to get an 'idem' string.
 - Extended the documentation.
