The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that version 1.1  
is available for download at <http://bibdesk.sourceforge.net/>.   
There are some major changes in this version, so it should probably  
be considered a beta release; as usual with beta releases, don't use  
it to overwrite the only copy of your .bib file!

Items using the BibTeX crossref field are now searchable and  
sortable, and inherited fields are displayed in the main pubs list  
and the editor.  Please see the online help for notes on editing  
(preferences, new menu items, and drag-and-drop).

Any problems should be reported on the SourceForge Tracker at <http://
