I occasionally see that kind of goofiness in sets where it says I can get the rest of the resources for $X.XX, but clicking the "hide resources already owned" shows that I own everything in that set. 🤷‍♂️

My point was that it is always a choice and never a compulsion.

It should be, anyway. I doubt that there are [m]any people for whom it is an authentic compulsion.

I'm having difficulty wrapping my mind around spending $1430 for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

I'd happily supply you with absolutely nothing for half that price. Wink

Bill Shewmaker:
it suggested L8-Platinum (which I already have AND THEN SOME) for $1430 and it would add "0" resources to my library

Could you post a screenshot please, Bill? Does the order box have an orange Add to cart button?

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

I cannot get it to save a picture of the webpage, but the Add button is orange on both of the options.

Well, my question is more for folks that went from 7 to 8... how much did you end up spending and kind of for what? I'm kind of wondering and trying to plan. Also, did you notice that the books included changed significantly? Was there anything you were particularly pleased with or disappointed by? I have well enough to keep me good for a long, long time... but am also curious as gift cards are pretty much my only ask right now as we, God willing, plan a big move and sell a bunch of stuff.

Yes they do. A significant source of revenue for FL is the sale of "libraries" (formerly "base packages" which included both data sets and resources). Since the software is free, FL needs users to continue making purchases. The creation of "Faithlife Connect" has helped to even out revenue stream so that there is less dependency on the new sales every couple of years.

When it comes to upgrades, I'm probably on the lower end of spending, usually $200-450 when a new version rolls out. As FL Connect has lost a lot of its glamour, I basically look to see how I can get a library and full feature set for the lowest possible cost. Keep in mind, though, that your base package price will be determined dynamically based on what you already own. I have a medium-sized but diverse library, so I usually get a fairly good discount.

For the last few versions, there are a LOT of options for upgrading because of the denominational base packs. I think some people overlook these because of the labels, but really many of them contain a lot of good material regardless of one's tradition. When a new version rolls out, I look over all the packages for bargains and for titles/sets I've been longing for but are too expensive at full price. My area is systematic theology, and I don't think I've ever bought a "standard" logos library. If my memory serves me, for L6 I got Reformed Gold, L7 Methodist Bronze, L8 Anglican Silver simply because they had a good mix of titles that helped to round out my library further. Right now I have most of what I need to satisfy both my work and my interests, so I have no idea what I'll go for with L9. On the whole, though, the remix of packages that happens with a new version is a good thing, and I look forward to seeing what great bargains I can pick up from it while staying within my modest budget.

I just saw a stray-posted Verbum (Chinese) beta post indicating the current version is 9.0.0.0142 (I think I remember it correctly; the post disappeared quickly). L8 was at 8.0.0.0562 when it shipped late Oct-2018.

Frodo looked down to the right at the number of pages remaining... it was going to be a long epic.

Kneel to Zod! I mean... DAL 😂😂😂 You might as well just do it.  I have a proven record.  I called out the name of the Logos Ultimate Base Package 😉 So that’s one.  And also predicted a release date before.  That’s two.  This will be three 😉

Well, it is true. Archaeologists have found ancient prophesy batting ... err ... prophesying averages by prophet.  They say some of the OT prophets were quite good.

track record of Logos release is roughly every 2 years... so End October 2020, we might see Logos 9. I am excited, honestly, but I hope they will keep the current Academic Professional package with all the same books intact.

I hope some of the features will match up other bible software like old bibleworks or accordance. Search phrases with GUI, using lines to show relationship. I have not used those two, I stick with logos, but I always wanted to know why people say they are faster in these kind of things.

They are faster because they are only retrieving a fraction of the data Logos is grabbing in a search.

That would be historically unprecedented. If you need the academic pro package, you should call sales asap. if you wait, you will 99.99% miss out on whats in there now.

Whats coming may or may not be better. I always hope that it is, and I'm frequently happy. But historically, ALL the base packages change wildly.
