The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that BibDesk  
1.2.3 is now available for download at http:// 
bibdesk.sourceforge.net/.  This version fixes some critical bugs  
(especially on Tiger), and users are encouraged to update  
immediately.  Many thanks to our nightly build testers and others who  
provided feedback and crash report info!

If you find a bug in BibDesk, please report it at <http:// 
sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423>.  Also, if you  
log in to the bug tracker or leave contact info, it's much easier to  
get follow up information if necessary.

*** Important ***
For this release only: if you update the input manager for  
autocompletion, quit and relaunch BibDesk afterwards, since conflicts  
can occur between BibDesk and an older version of the input manager.
