The default behavior of the biblatex package is to use the bibtex backend processor so you can still use that package. If you are in need of UTF-8 compatibility you can try using bibtex8 (use the [backend=bibtex8] option to the biblatex package). (If you happen to be using TeXshop I've built an engine that will use bibtex8 rather than bibtex.) So don't let the lack of biber stop you from trying out the biblatex package.

Good Luck,
