    It would be nice if biblatex’s shorttitle could be mapped to MODS’s <titleInfo type="abbreviated"><title>, in particular since citeproc-hs is now able to parse this element. - Thank you!

    It'll be fixed in the next version. The MODS support was present, but bibutils 4.17 (and before) wasn't looking for the tag shorttitle in biblatex references.

    Still does not seem to work in 5.0:

    An entry such as

        Author = {Author, Al},
        Date = {2013},
        Hyphenation = {english},
        Location = {Location},
        Publisher = {Publisher},
        Shorttitle = {Shorttitle},
        Subtitle = {Subtitle},
        Title = {Title}}

    when converted by biblatex2xml generates MODS without the shorttitle, but the following error messages (note the wrong spelling of 'SHORTITLE', BTW):

    biblatex2xml: Reference 1 has unused tags.
        Author(s) (level=0):
        Title(s) (level=0):
        Unused tags:
            tag: 'SHORTITLE' value: 'Shorttitle' level: 0
    biblatex2xml: Processed 1 references.
