So Here I am , using logos 8, and I was wondering when Logos 9 comes, so I can decide to buy some books now or wait and buy a package later when Logos 9 comes out? Thank you for your help.

greetings 

Peter

FL doesn't "pre announce." However, if past patterns are an indicator, you should expect L9 to come out in the fall sometime.

Most of us just wait around, watch the sales and this forum, and cherry pick the really good sales for resources we want or need. Start building a wish list or several by category. Live on a budget, don't get addicted. If you purchase something and don't like it, you have 30 days to return it. You can only return an item once. If you purchase it again, you can't return it.

It probably goes without saying, but everyone should take advantage of the free book of the month programs Faithlife has. I've been amazed by how many good resources I've picked up over the years that way.  It really adds up over time.

Yes, except those months when what they offer is already in your library. But Yes, check them out - both Logos and Verbum.

October-November. Just wait spending your money, buying Base Packages is the cheapest way building your library; it's $1 per resources or somewhere there.

It comes out when Bob says it comes out. :-)

Peter, welcome to the forums!

Whether you should buy some books now, wait for Logos 9, or wait for a sale, really depends on which books you want to get.

As stated there generally are no pre announcements. I have seen release as early as late august and going into early December one year. I would suspect that you may hear rumblings of beta testing by mid summer.

So, I'm imagining Logos 9 is just weeks away now. I'm thinking of upgrading to 8 Academic Professional to get TDOT at a decent price. Am I right in thinking I should go ahead with the purchase, and not wait for Logos 9 in case they don't bundle TDOT as well with Logos 9?

You are right that FL significantly modifies the "libraries" (formerly "base packages") that come with each new version of Logos. There is no telling which one might be best for you.

That’s what I did when the base packages were 25% off earlier this year. I upgraded simply for the TDOT, it seemed that I would be unlikely to get that price again.

Thanks JT for the speedy reply! Do you know if dynamic pricing also covers upgrades to feature sets? I'm wondering if I'd be wasting money at all by upgrading to the Academic feature set, and then possibly upgrading again once Logos 9 has come out.

Yes for dynamic pricing applying to feature sets.

KS4J already answered (yes, it does). For me, I prefer to own my resources and subscribe to features. A Faithlife Connect membership may be worth looking into.

I have broken my addiction. Was forced to. Will try and stay clean for the rest of this year and next.
