The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that BibDesk  
1.1.3 is available for download at <http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/ 
 >.  This release has a fairly long list of changes, particularly in  
the "Bugs Fixed" department, and is recommended for all users.  We've  
fixed at least one nasty crashing bug in 1.1.2, and hopefully more as  
well.  Further, this release should be compatible with pre-10.3.9 OS  
versions again, in spite of the shiny new Tiger features (Spotlight  
and PDFKit).

If you find bugs, please report them using the tracker at <https:// 
sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423>, so we can get  
them fixed as soon as possible.

I forgot to mention in the official release notes that Spotlight  
support won't be active until after you save a file.  Other than  
that, complete release notes follow:

Spotlight search results
   •  Implemented RFE #1238770; you can now set stop words for
