Hi Zhao, I have only dabbled with the various new version of Biblex as they have come along in the 30+ years since I wrote my PhD thesis in LaTeX and became a convert. I know from many papers, grants, and theses since then that standard BibTeX works fine.
Of course, I do not want to sound like an old curmudgeon and I love new tools and tricks. So I really welcome hearing from others on the list about advantages with the newer forms. I know that there are features I would add if I were competent enough.

I am currently writing an academic paper and have been using AUCTeX for LaTeX editing. I am wondering if it is always recommended to prefer BibLaTeX over BibTeX when working in AUCTeX for academic writing. I am aware that BibLaTeX is a newer system that provides more advanced features and customization options, while BibTeX has been around for a long time and is a well-established and stable system. However, I am not sure which one would be more suitable for my academic writing needs and would appreciate any insights or recommendations from the AUCTeX community. Thank you for your time and attention. I look forward to your response. Best regards, Zhao -- Assoc.
