Summary description: Sophisticated Bibliographies in LaTeX (multiscript version)

Announcement text:

This package is the "multiscript" version of the biblatex package. It is
intended to be backwards-compatible with the standard biblatex package and
includes significantly enhanced functionality to support multiple
scripts/languages of bibliography data fields and support for automatically
switching babel/polyglossia languages for different fieldvariants.

The intention is that this version will eventually replace standard biblatex and
is being released as an independent package to allow for wider testing and
feedback. It can be installed in parallel with standard biblatex and the package
name is "biblatex-ms". It requires the use of the multiscript version of biber
