The BibDesk team is pleased to announce that version 0.97.5 is 
available for download from http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/.  There are 
numerous new features in this release, so please be sure to read the 
online help for details.  Numerous bugs have been fixed for this 
release, as well, and Jaguar users should be happy to note that 
compatibility with that release of OS X is restored.

WARNING:  If you use the new Unicode-aware parser features, make a 
backup of your .bib file first!  This is a very new feature, although 
it seems to work well in our tests.  Read the notes in the online help 
before using this feature.

As always, please file your bug reports at 
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423, with 
detailed steps to reproduce; please note the expected behavior, and 
BibDesk's actual behavior.  Many thanks to those of you who filed 
reports that allowed us to immediately track down the problem!
