Summary description: BibLaTeX styles inspired by the Oxford Guide to Style

Announcement text:

As the styles are now in use without serious complaint, I am taking them out of beta and declaring this version 1.0.

  - A new convenience field, `casenumber', has been introduced to simplify use of the `number' and `userb' fields for European cases, for those not needing oscola compatibility.

  - Internally the styles now treat the oscola fields `parreporter', `parseries', `parvolume' and `parpages' as fully defined fields in their own right, instead of as aliases for `userb', `userc', etc.

  - The routine for compressing years (e.g. 2018-9) has been improved.

  - Internals have been updated for biblatex 3.12 (and xparse 2018-04-30).

  - Fixed an edge case that would trigger the printing of empty parentheses in reports.

  - Fixed a bug where redundant disambiguation markers would be printed in oxalph references if using non-default date merging options.

  - Fixed small bugs that biblatex was working around dynamically.
