biblatex-dw

package.

Summary description: Humanities styles for biblatex.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
version 1.5
This version of biblatex-dw was tested with biblatex 1.7.
- BUGFIX: The functionality of ibidpage=true was broken. This is now fixed.
- BUGFIX: With edbyidem=true (and xref=false), the first citation of an
@inbook entry where author and editor are the same, but the bookauthor
differs resulted in "ed. by idem", which is wrong. This is now fixed.
- BUGFIX: With edbyidem=false, the book author of @inbook entries
was not typeset in the appropriate format. This could lead to a
wrong output (e.g. "Lastname, Firstname" instead of "Firstname
Lastname"). This is now fixed.
- BUGFIX: With @inreference entries, the output could be
inconsistent with regard to the volume(s). This is now fixed.
- BUGFIX: Changes in font size for \annotationfont and \libraryfont
led to a wrong baselineskip. This is now fixed.
- BUGFIX: There was a small bug in @collection entries concerning the
punctuation after the labelname. This should be fixed now.
- BUGFIX: With shorthandinbib=true the \labelnamepunct was printed when there
was no author or editor present. This lead to superfluous punctuation and is
now fixed.
- BUGFIX: In some circumstances the final period of the bibliography items
(\finentry) was not printed. This is now fixed.
- In authortitle-dw, the \textcite command now also considers
the value of the firstfull option. That means, if a work
is cited for the first time via a \textcite command, the
result would be "<Name> (<full citation>)".
- New option "citeauthor" which can take the values "namefont", "namefontfoot"
and "normalfont". This option controls the name format for the \citeauthor
command. With "citeauthor=namefont" the same format as set by the option
"namefont" is used. This is the default behaviour. With "citeauthor=normalfont"
the normal font is always used for \citeauthor, regardless of the "namefont"
option. With "citeauthor=namefontfoot" the "namefont" format is used if the
\citeauthor command is inside a footnote, otherwise the normal font is used.
- The list of shorthands with option terselos=true is now even more terse:
the [main]subtitle and [main]titleaddon fields are now also omitted.
