comment Formatting biblatex citation to handle non-latin (Japanese) author names
The documentation for the 4.0 experimental branch is updated with all of the new multiscript features (called "variants") and there are examples in the documentation. The bibtex .bib format understood by biber has been augmented to allow this functionality. You'll find details in the PDF doc and also on the github thread mentioned above. I welcome any feedback on this.

comment biblatex-apa: full first names in the bibliography
I'm afraid this is by design. APA style only uses initials and so there is no conditional code in the style to respond to the full name options. This would also require passing different options to biber for disambiguation etc.

comment only display all authors, of multi-author works, the first time a citation is used with biblatex
It's best to do this in the labelname format but checking \ifciteseen is the right way to do it. The APA style does this (it's more complex there however as the APA rules are rather strange).

comment Citations in tabularx cause all bibliography entries to not have a number
@DavidCarlisle - that fix seems to fix the internal numbering and .aux file issues - do you think there is some way to patch tabularx to always do this?

comment Citations in tabularx cause all bibliography entries to not have a number
@DavidCarlisle Hmm, I have fixed the main problem in biblatex with the bad numbering but the tabularx version still does something strange - I never find the citation in the aux file and so there are persistent re-run messages. I think perhaps we need to patch tabularx internals in biblatex to avoid multiple \cites?

Ah, ok, that explains the non-contiguous cite order counter in the .bcf. This should not normally cause problems.

I think that this was a biblatex regression. I don't quite understand this strange interaction with tabularx but I think this is now fixed in the 3.0 dev version.

Hmm, ok, I will need to look at relevant commits for 2.9.

comment Reference or Cheat Sheet of BibLaTex
This is an open feature request - we really need a "quick start" guide as the manual is a (comprehensive) beast. Anybody volunteering to help with this is most welcome ...

comment biber-\printbibliography problem
Something is wrong with biber - the line [56] is very suspicious as the printf placeholders are not being instantiated. Go to a command line and run biber --cache and then delete whatever folder it returns. Then re-run biber --help and wait until you get the help output. Then try your example again.

comment How to parse BIB file to a known TeX structure?
It would be relatively easy to write a new biber output module for this format by just copying the bbl.pm output module. Then you would have access to all biber features like re-encoding, UTF-8, cross resolution, source mapping etc.
