Announcement text: 
Bugfix release.
 * Removed support for legacy biblatex control files
   (\jobname-blx.bib): Biber now only reads .bcf files which
   are generated by biblatex with the option "backend=biber". 
 * Improved handling of "uniquename" and "namehash".
 * Don't escape LaTeX special chars in bbl output, as it
   breaks math formatting.
