Much-augmented BibTeX replacement for BibLaTeX users

The biblatex package by Philipp Lehman is becoming the definitive citation management tool for LaTeX users. Biblatex has relied on the venerable BibTeX program only for sorting and generating a very generic .bbl file without any formatting instruction. Everything else is taken care of by biblatex, which provides a powerful and flexible macro interface for authors of citation styles.

Biber offers a large superset of BibTeX functionality for BibLaTeX users. In addition it offers full UTF-8 (Unicode 6.0) capabilities, fully customisable sorting, output to GraphViz to help visualise complex crossrefs, support for remote data sources, structural validation of the data against the (customisable) data model, and a lot more.

License: GPL-1+ or Artistic-2.0

GPL-1+:

 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
 modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as
 published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 1, or
 (at your option) any later version.
 On Debian systems, the complete text of version 1 of the GNU
 General Public License can be found in `/usr/share/common-
 licenses/GPL-1'.

Artistic-2.0:

 Copyright (c) 2000-2006, The Perl Foundation.
 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of
 this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
 Preamble
 This license establishes the terms under which a given free
 software Package may be copied, modified, distributed, and/or
 redistributed. The intent is that the Copyright Holder maintains
 some artistic control over the development of that Package while
 still keeping the Package available as open source and free
 software.
 You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly outside of
 this license directly with the Copyright Holder of a given
 Package. If the terms of this license do not permit the full use
 that you propose to make of the Package, you should contact the
 Copyright Holder and seek a different licensing arrangement.
 Definitions
 "Copyright Holder" means the individual(s) or organization(s)
 named in the copyright notice for the entire Package.
 "Contributor" means any party that has contributed code or other
 material to the Package, in accordance with the Copyright
 Holder's procedures.
 "You" and "your" means any person who would like to copy,
 distribute, or modify the Package.
 "Package" means the collection of files distributed by the
 Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection and/or of
 those files. A given Package may consist of either the Standard
 Version, or a Modified Version.
 "Distribute" means providing a copy of the Package or making it
 accessible to anyone else, or in the case of a company or
 organization, to others outside of your company or organization.
 "Distributor Fee" means any fee that you charge for Distributing
 this Package or providing support for this Package to another
 party. It does not mean licensing fees.
 "Standard Version" refers to the Package if it has not been
 modified, or has been modified only in ways explicitly requested
 by the Copyright Holder.
 "Modified Version" means the Package, if it has been changed, and
 such changes were not explicitly requested by the Copyright
 Holder.
 "Original License" means this Artistic License as Distributed
 with the Standard Version of the Package, in its current version
 or as it may be modified by The Perl Foundation in the future.
 "Source" form means the source code, documentation source, and
 configuration files for the Package.
 "Compiled" form means the compiled bytecode, object code, binary,
 or any other form resulting from mechanical transformation or
 translation of the Source form.
 Permission for Use and Modification Without Distribution
 (1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create and
 use Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction,
 provided that you do not Distribute the Modified Version.
 Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version
 (2) You may Distribute verbatim copies of the Source form of the
 Standard Version of this Package in any medium without
 restriction, either gratis or for a Distributor Fee, provided
 that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and
 associated disclaimers. At your discretion, such verbatim copies
 may or may not include a Compiled form of the Package.
 (3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
 modifications made available from the Copyright Holder. The
 resulting Package will still be considered the Standard Version,
 and as such will be subject to the Original License.
 Distribution of Modified Versions of the Package as Source
 (4) You may Distribute your Modified Version as Source (either
 gratis or for a Distributor Fee, and with or without a Compiled
 form of the Modified Version) provided that you clearly document
 how it differs from the Standard Version, including, but not
 limited to, documenting any non-standard features, executables,
 or modules, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
 following:
 (a) make the Modified Version available to the Copyright Holder
 of the Standard Version, under the Original License, so that the
 Copyright Holder may include your modifications in the Standard
 Version.  (b) ensure that installation of your Modified Version
 does not prevent the user installing or running the Standard
 Version. In addition, the Modified Version must bear a name that
 is different from the name of the Standard Version.  (c) allow
 anyone who receives a copy of the Modified Version to make the
 Source form of the Modified Version available to others under (i)
 the Original License or (ii) a license that permits the licensee
 to freely copy, modify and redistribute the Modified Version
 using the same licensing terms that apply to the copy that the
 licensee received, and requires that the Source form of the
 Modified Version, and of any works derived from it, be made
 freely available in that license fees are prohibited but
 Distributor Fees are allowed.
 Distribution of Compiled Forms of the Standard Version or
 Modified Versions without the Source
 (5) You may Distribute Compiled forms of the Standard Version
 without the Source, provided that you include complete
 instructions on how to get the Source of the Standard Version.
 Such instructions must be valid at the time of your distribution.
 If these instructions, at any time while you are carrying out
 such distribution, become invalid, you must provide new
 instructions on demand or cease further distribution. If you
 provide valid instructions or cease distribution within thirty
 days after you become aware that the instructions are invalid,
 then you do not forfeit any of your rights under this license.
 (6) You may Distribute a Modified Version in Compiled form
 without the Source, provided that you comply with Section 4 with
 respect to the Source of the Modified Version.
 Aggregating or Linking the Package
 (7) You may aggregate the Package (either the Standard Version or
 Modified Version) with other packages and Distribute the
 resulting aggregation provided that you do not charge a licensing
 fee for the Package. Distributor Fees are permitted, and
 licensing fees for other components in the aggregation are
 permitted. The terms of this license apply to the use and
 Distribution of the Standard or Modified Versions as included in
 the aggregation.
 (8) You are permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions with
 other works, to embed the Package in a larger work of your own,
 or to build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of
 applications that include the Package, and Distribute the result
 without restriction, provided the result does not expose a direct
 interface to the Package.
 Items That are Not Considered Part of a Modified Version
 (9) Works (including, but not limited to, modules and scripts)
 that merely extend or make use of the Package, do not, by
 themselves, cause the Package to be a Modified Version. In
 addition, such works are not considered parts of the Package
 itself, and are not subject to the terms of this license.
 General Provisions
 (10) Any use, modification, and distribution of the Standard or
 Modified Versions is governed by this Artistic License. By using,
 modifying or distributing the Package, you accept this license.
 Do not use, modify, or distribute the Package, if you do not
 accept this license.
 (11) If your Modified Version has been derived from a Modified
 Version made by someone other than you, you are nevertheless
 required to ensure that your Modified Version complies with the
 requirements of this license.
 (12) This license does not grant you the right to use any
 trademark, service mark, tradename, or logo of the Copyright
 Holder.
 (13) This license includes the non-exclusive, worldwide, free-of-
 charge patent license to make, have made, use, offer to sell,
 sell, import and otherwise transfer the Package with respect to
 any patent claims licensable by the Copyright Holder that are
 necessarily infringed by the Package. If you institute patent
 litigation (including a cross-claim or counterclaim) against any
 party alleging that the Package constitutes direct or
 contributory patent infringement, then this Artistic License to
 you shall terminate on the date that such litigation is filed.
 (14) Disclaimer of Warranty: THE PACKAGE IS PROVIDED BY THE
 COPYRIGHT HOLDER AND CONTRIBUTORS "AS IS' AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS
 OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES. THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY,
 FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT ARE
 DISCLAIMED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY YOUR LOCAL LAW. UNLESS
 REQUIRED BY LAW, NO COPYRIGHT HOLDER OR CONTRIBUTOR WILL BE
 LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL
 DAMAGES ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF THE PACKAGE, EVEN IF
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
