BibDesk has now been moved to Sourceforge, and is an open-source 
project under the BSD license.
I'd like to invite interested developers to investigate the project and 

What this means for those who are not interested in helping with code 
is that it should become easier to do things like localize BibDesk into 
languages other than English, and possibly help with documentation.

If you do not wish to participate, but are a BibDesk user, these 
changes still may affect you - first, there are two new mailing lists 
hosted at sourceforge:
http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/bibdesk-users (For user 
http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/bibdesk-announce (Only 
for announcements of new versions)

Also, the BibDesk project page at sourceforge allows posting feature 
requests and bug reports into a database that supports organized 
tracking and notification - any user could post a bug report and check 
back later to see comments and progress.

The main bibdesk info page is still at 
The Sourceforge project page is at 
There is a development mailing list at
