I quickly want to note that the description is not really correct: Biber is a replacement for BibTeX (and works with BibLaTeX). One of the advantages over BibTeX is full UTF-8 support.

Sorry for the delay, had to package literally 29 other things for this to work.

Thanks a lot for your hard work!

I'm disappointed this request has nothing to do with terminators..
