Update summary:
........................................................................
This version should be used with biblatex 0.9c  Most notable changes in
this update:  
  * Biber::BibTeX moved to Biber::Input::BibTeX. If
upgrading, please  remove your installed <perl lib>/Biber/BibTeX.pm  
  * New aliases for EPRINT classes and types implemented (see BibLaTeX docs)
  * Biber now resolves XREFs as well as CROSSREFs so one less LaTeX pass
is needed  
  * Allows UTF-8 citekeys. Requires Text::BibTeX >= 0.46 and a
fully  Unicode-aware engine (XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX).  
  * RecDescent parser is no longer supported or included. If upgrading,  please remove your
installed <perl lib>/Biber/BibTeX directory  
  * Now requires LaTeX::Decode >= 0.03  
  * Stricter version dependency for Text::BibTeX.
Older than 0.42 is  rather useless for complex names.  
  * Re-factored and enhanced auto-re-encoding of .bib/.bbl. With biblatex  0.9c, Biber
handles all reencoding.  
  * Misc bug fixes
