I'm using biblatex for PhD thesis.

I want to have per chapter bibliographies. Moreover I would like to split the bibliography for each \section. Therefore I use refsection=section when loading biblatex and use \bibbysection[heading=subbibliography] to print the references.

The problem is all list of references have the same title (References). I would like to use the number of the \section (or even better the name).

I have found the way to do that in the manual (section 3.10.3) but can't make it work. For instance with the following file:


\section*{References from section \ref{refsection:\therefsection}}}
% \usepackage{nameref}
% \defbibheading{subbibliography}{%
% \section*{\nameref{refsection:\therefsection}}}


\section{My first method}


\section{My better method}




And the bib:

author = {Dubois, Mathieu},
title = {New stuff},
year  = {2011}
author = {Dubois, Mathieu},
title = {Old stuff},
year  = {2010}

I get:

References from section 1
References from section 1.1

Where I expected:

References from section 1.1
References from section 1.2

Any idea? ...

I'm using TeXLive 2010 on Ubuntu 11.04 (biblatex version 1.4c).

When I compile your example, I get the expected output ("References from section 1.1", "References from section 1.2"). I'm using biblatex v1.6. – lockstep Sep 2 '11 at 14:52
Thanks. I'm updating my install (the last TeXLive comes with biblatex 1.6). – Mathieu Dubois Sep 2 '11 at 15:22
OK. This works now. The conclusion is that it is a bug from biblatex version 1.4. Thanks. – Mathieu Dubois Sep 2 '11 at 15:49
