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.
Thanks for good program!
