I thought I would start a positive thread... Smile

I was initially really excited to see the Lexham Context Commentary because it is something I had thought about purchasing when it first came out, but that's personal to me more likely than most.

I also think the Counseling Guide will be helpful for pastors that aren't particularly gifted toward counseling build empathy in areas they aren't experienced with. This is a win for the body of Christ in my mind. 

How about you? What were you excited to see?

Don't know if new, but the four Lexham Research Lexicons (hebrew, aramaic, LXX and NT). Kind of interesting approach.

The new features are great, but no longer having to wait for Carta and a Hebrew audio bible frankly tops everything else, for me.

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

I was excited about the Hebrew Bible as well as I want to learn Hebrew this winter. It made me smile.

Great thread! 

I am super pumped about the updated Factbook and the Counseling Guide! The Counseling Guide will be immensely helpful for me. When I saw that, I upgraded immediately to have that functionality. Counseling is an area where I know as a pastor I am deficient, so to have this resource will be so helpful! 

The Factbook revamp and the Factbook visual filter are both pretty neat. I like the new emphasis upon the Factbook as a hub for information now. 

Two thumbs up to Faithlife for Logos 9! (Again, the new counseling direction was brilliant.)

Carta and Dark Mode are the things I'm most excited about.  

Images in Notes is nice although I'm still hoping that embedded tables can be added at some point.  That would complete my must have features for Notes.

Images in Notes, Folders in the Shortcuts bar, and Carta. Also, the new Factbook looks to be something that I will come to refer to frequently.

The Factbook is outstanding, especially on mobile. It feels almost indispensable after less than a day’s use.

The lack of crash reports, the lack of complaints on the forums .... all in all the smoothest, best received rollout I've spent with Logos/Verbum

AGREED! Aside from a few issues, things have been VERY smooth, and the positive feedback has been very pleasant. I'm sure the FL staff are pleased about this! And Bob, too! LOL

Many of my wishlist items and pre-pubs were included in my tier package (I got Verbum Platinum for now, and hope to eventually work my way back up to Ultimate).

I was a little disappointed that my most recent purchases of 8 libraries didn't count for credit like it did in 7, but it's entirely possible I missed the window for that.

All these people mentioning Carta. I have it on pre-order and it's still showing as In Production. Has it downloaded for you already if you bought one of the L9 packages? I got the update to the new L9 engine automatically, but haven't bought a package yet. Trying to decide whether to cancel my pre-pub and do so.

Yes.  The Carta collection downloaded with the upgrade.  I had just Sacred Bridge on preorder.  Curious why it hasn't just shipped to everyone since it's ready.
