The BibDesk development team is pleased to announce that BibDesk  
1.2.6 is now available for download at <http:// 
bibdesk.sourceforge.net/>.  There are many bugs fixed in this  
version, so users are encouraged to upgrade and report the bugs we  
added along with all the shiny new features.

Thanks for sending in your crash logs; a few people provided feedback  
that helped us fix some hard-to-spot crashing problems.  As usual,  
please submit bug reports at <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/? 
group_id=61487&atid=497423> so we can track the issue and follow up  
as necessary.

NOTE 1: drag-and-drop of files on the main publications list is now  
more sensitive to drop location, so pay attention to the row  
highlighting!  Remember that cmd-z is your friend in case you drop in  
the wrong location.

NOTE 2: the new sharing feature is off by default; check the manual  
or post to the bibdesk-users list if you have questions about it.

Detailed release notes follow.
