The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that BibDesk 1.3.2  
is available for download at http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net.  This  
fixes numerous bugs (including a crash when saving and the mysterious  
objectAtIndex: exception), and introduces a few new features.

Thanks to those of you who submitted reproducible bug reports and  
comments along with the exception reports; as always, please continue  
to submit bug reports at <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=61487&atid=497423 
 >.  Exhaustive (or exhausting?) release notes follow, so you can see  
that we're earning our upgrade fees.

Changes since 1.3.1

New Features
	* New "Publication Date" column for displaying a composite Month +  
Year, so we no longer have conflicts with existing Date fields
	* Prefix/suffix addition to the Database Find & Replace panel
	* Author's display name is now used for the author table and menu
	* Can now download URLs to link as local files (drop a remote URL on  
the local file button or a local file editor field)
	* TeX preview now displays a warning badge and log in separate tab  
when typesetting errors are encountered
	* A warning is now displayed if front matter and/or macros are  
ignored when pasting BibTeX data
	* Preliminary support for hCite (microformat) browsing and parsing;  
requires a hidden default (see bibdesk-users list archives for details)
	* Clicking file URL links now sends kAESearchText Apple Event when  
	* Document macros are now accessible via AppleScript
	* Spotlight cache files now get kMDItemCreator and  
kMDItemContentCreationDate; Read status is included even as three- 
state field
	* Field names can be localized, if anyone ever localizes BibDesk
	* Spotlight cache files now get custom icons by default
	* New window for matching orphaned (or other) files with bibliography  
items, using SearchKit (see Window menu)
	* Author table column now sorts more correctly (based on multiple  
authors instead of the first author's last name)
	* Items in Window menu are now organized by document

Bugs Fixed
	* Stale TeX intermediate files are removed between previews
	* Added workaround for editor beachball when the Spotlight database  
is corrupted
	* Saving from AppleScript no longer uses a stale encoding value
	* Fixed some issues with the editor's rating buttons, and check range  
when change rating with arrow keys
	* Fixed leaks in release notes viewing, text import sheet
	* WebKit plugins are enabled again, in hopes that the losers at Adobe  
have fixed the crashes their plugins caused
	* Filename display cells break text in the middle instead of the tail
	* Numeric stack traces are used if atos isn't installed (part of  
developer tools)
	* Report errors for missing citekey and type instead of crashing
	* Formatter is now used correctly for add/remove field sheets
	* Cite keys from non-BibTeX sources are now generated when they are  
incorporated into a document, so conflicts can be resolved correctly
	* Host info is displayed in exception viewer, so we know how to run  
atos on the stack trace
	* Help on Junior name splitting was incorrect (bug #1649434)
	* Optionally allow editing default BibTeX types and fields; although  
we think this is a bad idea, we're tired of the requests
	* Type editor allows dragging between required and optional fields  
when the type is editable
	* Set undo action name when changing BibTeX string of a field via  
	* Don't show cite key warnings for external items
	* Cite key and Local-Url fields are ignored when comparing external  
items to those already in the file (for import button)
	* Support selection from .aux files using non-standard bibliography  
styles (e.g. harvard); guess citation command from the file
	* Handle splitview resizing internally, since Apple's code has  
rounding errors
	* Fixed a potential crash when saving (incorrect error class)
	* Fixed an autorelease memory smasher introduced in 1.3.0 that was  
causing random crashes (thanks to Nathan Paxton for a reproducible  
test case)
	* Finally fixed the mysterious objectAtIndex: exception introduced in  
1.3.0 (thanks to Alex Martsinkovsky for providing steps to reproduce  
	* Search groups can now be renamed (bug #1663856)
	* Table columns now have minimum width of 16
