The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that BibDesk 0.98 
is now available for download at <http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/>.

This release has a full-fledged AutoFile feature, thanks to Christiaan 
Hofman, so check out the preferences; it's almost like iTunes for 
articles!  Further, AppleScript should work once again (if not, please 
let me know ASAP), and we fixed an incompatibility with the 
autocompletion plugin that caused EndNote 8 to hang (thanks to Alex 
Montgomery for discovering this).  Autocompletion users should update 
their plugin from BibDesk's Autocompletion preferences.

In the event that you find a bug, please remember to file a report at 
<http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423>, with 
supporting information so we can reproduce the issue.

** NOTE **
The cautious among you may want to back up your existing bibliography 
and autofiled articles (if any), before using the new "Consolidate..."
