Many readers will be familiar with the Biber program, a replacement for BibTeX which works with the
biblatex package. Binaries for common platforms have been available from TLcontrib for a while, but have now been added to the main TeX Live 2010 system. So you can install Biber on the ‘common’ platforms using the TeX Live Manager (or
tlmgr from the command line). Yet another reason to move on from BibTeX and switch to
biblatex, if you’ve not already!
