User Reviews

  • With the latest version of Biber the run that took 2min 30 sec is down to 19 sec. Thank you very much for the great program

  • Very powerful, full UTF8 workflow.

  • I just switched form bibtex to the biber backend and I'm in general very pleased, however at the beginning there were a lot of errors, as biber seems to be more critical about the bibtex source files than bibtex was.

  • Great stuff.
