CTAN update: bibtex
All of the BibTeX-related files originating with the Stanford TeX Project have been updated to clarify the license, which was always intended to be the same as TeX. There are no functional changes. This includes bibtex.web, plain.bst, btxdoc.tex, and so on. We have also folded the three apalike files into the main BibTeX directory, so that all of the original BibTeX files are available in the same place. http://tug.org/interest.html#bibtex is one list of BibTeX and bibliography-related links. --Oren Patashnik and Karl Berry

bibtex – Process bibliographies (bib files) for LaTeX or other formats
BibTeX allows the user to store his citation data in generic form, while printing citations in a document in the form specified by a BibTeX style, to be specified in the document itself (one often needs a LaTeX citation-style package, such as natbib, as well).
BibTeX knows nothing about Unicode sorting algorithms or scripts, although it will pass on whatever bytes it reads. Its descendant bibtexu does support Unicode, via the ICU library. The older alternative bibtex8 supports 8-bit character sets.
