The BibDesk team is pleased to announce that we have just released a 
new version of BibDesk, primarily to fix some crashing bugs and improve 
the automatic cite key generation code.  A new background file-loading 
feature has also been added, and we hope that the remaining changes in 
this release will improve the consistency of the user experience.  The 
new version is available for download from 

If you find a bug, please report it to the development team via the bug 
tracker at 
<http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423>.  Include 
detailed steps to reproduce, and contact information if you would like 
use to follow up (if you login to SourceForge you will automatically 
get followups to your bug reports).

Complete release notes follow.

New Features
   •  Background file loading; allows loading multiple files 
simultaneously and keeps from beachballing while loading a large file.  
This feature is experimental, and disabled by default.  It requires the 
Unicode-aware parser.

   •  Force ASCII encoding by default if libbtparse is used (bug 
#1110754), which should (help) keep users from corrupting their files.  
Note that the File->Open menu item can still be used to open with 
different encodings, no matter which parser is set in the Files 
preference pane.
   •  Fixed a bug that prevented the use of colons in cite key formats
   •  Fixed a couple of crashing bugs related to invalid cite key format 
   •  Improved the warnings for invalid cite key format strings, and 
improve the error checking/handling
   •  The Unicode parser is now used for paste/drag operations if 
selected as the default parser
   •  Selection in the main reference list of a document is now more 
consistent with Apple's guidelines
