The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce the release of  
BibDesk 1.0, available now at <http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/>.   
We've been on the verge of releasing 1.0 for about a year now, so  
it's about time.  Rather than throw in a lot of exclamation points  
about how exciting!!! this is, we've provided our standard list of  
bugs fixed, which even includes some reruns from the last release  
that weren't quite fixed.

We think we've fixed the top crashing bugs since 1.0RC2, so BibDesk  
should be reasonably bug-free by now.  In the event that you discover  
a new bug, please file a report at <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/? 
group_id=61487&atid=497423> so that we can track the problem.  Thanks  
to all of you who have submitted bug reports and other feedback,  
which have greatly improved this program!
