BibDesk 0.97.1 is available from http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/.  This 
is intended to be a bugfix release, and we thank those of you who 
submitted crash reports (and if you tell us what you did just before 
the program crashed, the reports are even more helpful).  We fixed a 
bad crasher from 0.97, and hopefully BibDesk will run under Jaguar 
again (although it hasn't been tested).

We had some bug reports on autocompletion, so much of the the plugin 
has been rewritten, hopefully without introducing new bugs.  This will 
require a reinstall of the plugin from BibDesk's autocompletion 
preferences.  Curt Clifton, an intrepid user of BBEdit and BibDesk, 
wrote an AppleScript to enable a similar completion feature in BBEdit; 
his script can be found at 

Note that numerous AppleScripts are available from the BibDesk wiki at 
http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/AppleScript, as well, and 
these can be used to populate the new script menu.  Please add a link 
to your own BibDesk-related AppleScripts!  I've seen some good ones 
posted on the bibdesk-users mailing list, but they're now buried in the 
list archives.
