The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that BibDesk  
1.1.8 is now available for download at <http:// 
bibdesk.sourceforge.net/>.  We have some major new features in this  
release, and hopefully they'll be useful to new and old users alike.   
Numerous bugs have also been fixed, including our top reported  
crasher (crash when closing an editor window).  Thanks to all who  
sent in crash reports with notes, and provided feedback on our  
nightly builds!

As always, please file bug reports at <http://sourceforge.net/ 
tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423>, including exact steps to  
reproduce.  Many of the bugs we fixed in this release came from user  
reports, and we appreciate the time it takes to file those.  The  
complete list of changes follows.
