Anyone know anything about this?  The product page didn't mention any changes.  I wonder if it would be worth buying to owners of the first edition?  Maybe in a base package later on?

I wonder which one you get ... digital or hardcover?

The date this is available is the release date for the hardback version.    Maybe a digital update as well.

Where do you get that from? At top of page it says format is digital. Halfway down page in product details section it says: Format: Digital, Hardcover whatever that means but that is only reference I see to hardback version and is inconsistent with statement at top of page it is digital.

No information is given on details of what has changed since first edition. Seems to me page was rushed to production with no proof-reading or sense checking of details or thought put into what information a customer might want to know about the product.

When I add it to my cart there is no shipping charge added so it's digital...unless shipping would be added later...

I wonder if it was taken from this page?

Here you have the option to purchase either the digital or print copy.

This is correct. When we decided to publish the Lexham English Septuagint in print, we went through an extensive revision and proof to make sure the translation was ready for print. Because the LES is integrated into so many software features, a straight update of the existing resource with these new changes wasn't going to work. We decided to publish a digital edition of the print manuscript as a "Second Edition" alongside the Hardcover release.

For owners of the existing edition of the LES, we will have a free, limited time upgrade period beginning on January 15, the release day.

Neato!  Will instructions for redemption be posted here or through email?

Will Alternate Texts be revised as well?

Thank you for making it freely available for owners of the existing edition!

I don't understand.

Will the second edition not support the software features? Will the second edition have corrections that the first edition won't get? Will there be two editions on the store, or will the prior edition be pulled?

Thanks, Jake, for any additional answers you can provide.

So are you saying the second digital edition will be less functional than the current digital edition in terms of how well it integrates with the software?

Hi folks.

The second edition of the LES had enough edits and changes to necessitate a new version for Logos Bible Software rather than a simple update of the existing version. This also means a new/edited underlying reverse interlinear needs to be integrated. The first edition of the LES will remain as is, the second edition will reflect the text of the print version and have an associated reverse interlinear. Think of it (sort of) like the 1984 NIV and the 2011 NIV.

I think the "software features" that Jake refers to in this thread are those based on the reverse interlinear.

Thanks for the clarification Rick. That's a helpful way to think of it.

If you own the first edition and go to the above link it should list the second edition as free for you... it did for me.  Enjoy and thank you Logos/Faithlife!
