Questions tagged [biber]

Biber is a {bibtex} replacement for {biblatex}. It is functionally a significant superset of BibTeX, allowing more customisation by the user of, e.g., sorting, label generation, inheritance, and data source stream manipulation. It also supports advanced auto-disambiguation of names and name lists.
