I mentioned that we’d have a new alpha today and I intended to post one earlier this morning, but every time I was about to push one out, one of our devs said “Hang on 5 more minutes, I’ve got a great feature that can go in.” Bob even took the Mac team out to dinner since we were all working late on this release: https://twitter.com/BobPritchett/statuses/5468069287

 

You can simply use “Update Now” in the command bar to check for updates from within the app or just restart the app. If that doesn't suit you, you can always download the latest release from: http://downloads.logos.com/LBS4/LBS4InstallerMac/Logos4Mac.dmg

 

Logos 4 Mac – Alpha 2 Change Log

 

First Time Startup

·      After logging in the first time, the app will download all resources/updates and build your library before showing the main window.

 

Home Page – “Enter Passage, Click Go”

·      No content is displayed yet

·      Loading the layout after clicking “Go” takes a few seconds

·      You have to either click the Home Icon to hide it, or “Enter Passage, Click Go”

·      Unchecking “Show home page at startup” will cause layouts to be saved and reloaded when you restart the app.

 

Library

  * Fixed a crash when the Library window was closed while resources were being prioritized.

 

Guides

·      Cross References Section has been added

·      Collections Section has been added

 

Indexing

·      Fixed a bug where certain resources could crash the indexer during discovery or indexing which prevented app start up or Library from being populated.

·      Indexing icon will turn gray when indexing is paused.

·      Downloading updates will no longer be stuck at 0% after clicking “Cancel All”.

·      Downloading should be faster in many cases.

 

Search

·      Bible search screen appears, but searching does not work.

·      Passage selection in Bible Search does not work.

·      Article titles are not hyperlinked yet (despite being blue).

 

 Resource Display

·      Hover tips now appear.

·      There are still some display issues with Greek (NA27) on Snow Leopard.

One more thing: The first pass at partial indexing is implemented. That means after your library is indexed the first time, adding new resources to the index should not take as long. I don't think any Windows builds have this yet.

This is also why the "Time Remaining" estimates are really far off at the beginning of indexing. It really won't take 100 hours, or 48 hours or 72 hours or whatever it tells you up front. Give it time and the estimate will settle down to something more consistent and reasonable.

Thanks Tom! I'm excited about the forthcoming Logos 4 for Mac, and love the simplicity of updates. Keep up the good work :)

Jason, start a new thread with the report and attach our logs, that will be most helpful for fixing bugs.

I think this is happening because you are clicking on the link and your browser doesn't know what to do with the file type. It's actually a link to a file so you can ctrl+click or two-finger tap the link (if you have multi-touch) and download the file.

Just download alpha 2, installed, started, logged in, program said "checking for updates" and froze (Activity Monitor indicated Logos 4 Mac "not responding").  Force Quit.  Restarted.  This time program froze on "logging in".

I'm excited about trying to be a first time Logos user, but so far I have to wonder why these alphas are being released when they won't even run at all.  And I'm running on a new, so far flawless, iMac 27 with a fresh install of Snow Leopard with all updates. 

I don't except much from an alpha release, but I think it's reasonable to expect it to at least start running and let you do something.

Just followed the advice of someone else in this forum and removed everything Logos, restarted my iMac and reinstalled alpha 2 again.  Started it and the same thing happened: froze on "checking for updates" and had to force quit.

Disappointed it won't even run.  Makes me wonder why I plunked down hundreds of dollars now instead of waiting for a version that will at least run.  Hmmmmm

I can't download it either. Right-clicking on link gives me an access denied page.

I'm curious Richard. I have been unable to download being told consistently that "access is denied". How were you able to download Alpha 2? I for one, am very disappointed in the whole Mac/Logos process. Sorry, but having been a Logos user for a number of years in the PC world, and having recently migrated to a Mac (a decision I have never regretted) I was foolishly expecting more when Logos for Mac came out. Here I am months later, poorer and still trying to get Logos to work! Oh well, now, back to work.

HI,

I think there is a typo in the link.  I managed to download with this link and installed the Alpha 2.

http://downloads.logos.com/LBS4/LBS4MacInstaller/Logos4Mac.dmg

 

The different:

The link with access denied error has the location as <LBS4Installermac>

The link which I download with has the location as <LBS4MacInstaller>.  It is the first link that I use to download Alpha-1.  I though I will give it a try and it works.  Hope it works for those with problem.

Cheers
