comment Biber and Perl bug: Unescaped left brace in regex is deprecated, passed through in regex
You need biber >2.1, that is biber 2.2 or later if you want to run it with your own perl 5.22 install.

This was fixed in biber >2.1 so that it can be run with perl 5.22.

See edits for fixes for these two issues. You will need to get biblatex 3.3 again (but not biber 2.4 again) as there is a need for a new internal macro. To get rid of duplicates, you use a bibcheck which is automatically used by the biblist.

comment biblatex: Index authors with something like indexname (in parallel to indextitle)?
In addition to this, you can also use a sourcemap (\DeclareSourcemap) to simply copy the author field into indexname and then use a regular expression map to normalise the name variants. That way you don't even need to put indexname in your .bib, it will be automatically created and normalised by biber as it reads the .bib.

See edits - this is now easier due to new mapping functionality.

comment How to find the correct bibtex item from the reference we have?
biblatex1.sty is mostly "frozen" apart from the odd change so I sometimes forget about it ... there is redundancy in some cases due to things that happened before the major changes for biblatex 2.0 which were all biber related. At that point it was clear that one biblatex.sty for both bibtex and biber would be a confusing mass of conditionals.

comment biblatex includes redundant author initials
Assuming you are using biber, you can also post just the .bbl code for a particular problem entry (just search for the entry key in the .bbl). We can determine from this whether biber thought that the name needed disambiguating.

Hmm, I doubt that this is possible with the current functionality. I'll have to think about it.

comment Customize biblatex alpha labels
Typo corrected - was documented in a hurry. The "2-" is just to give the option of more explicit labels even though the actual bib is truncated. May be of some use in some circumstances which I can't imagine at the moment.
