I have a question more than anything...

I know L5 has been mentioned before.  Are we truly done or close to done with the promised L4 features before this L5 comes out? 

It seems like to me, there is just a couple of minor things that are still "lacking" in L4 but I also have the feeling like L4 has grown above what a standard "free" upgrade might be.  I guess for this thought process......we dont pay for the engine.....just resources......but it seems there are some logos tools that we must pay for.  I don't disagree with having to pay for them......

 

I guess I am just questioning what would Logos 4 look like with only free stuff.....

Well, yes, the tumbleweeds are rolling for Logos 4. Since the major 4.5 release, a whole week has slipped by, and all we've done is ship a beta of 4.5a. Clearly the waters have gone still in Logos 4 land...

:-)

I would like to get on to Logos 5 -- we have some amazing new features/data sets planned -- but there are still a few things planned for Logos 4.

I think the "big rocks" people are still awaiting for Logos 4 are Word Lists, Vocab Lists, and Sermon File. No promises on dates, but we know people are still waiting for these.

You should also see some very cool "bonus" Logos 4 functionality slipping in before 5 arrives...

I am loving L4 more and more. Last year was a sensational year for L4, and I can hardly believe L4.5 has already been released. Thanks for your team's great work Bob. I just want Logos Android dragged up to date. :)

That's a very interesting comment, if a little cryptic!

If Logos 5 is "in the works", what sort of timescales are you looking at for it?

I know you can't give dates, but are you looking at this year, next?

Also, what is the general policy on major release upgrades?

Will you be charging people to upgrade from Logos 4 to Logos 5?

Since I've been part of the private beta of these cool bonus features I've decided to break my NDA and highlight them here.

 

1. A new Sermon Guide. When a passage is highlighted, you right click it and it does all the exegetical work for you and comes up with an instantly preachable homily with full notes and video/graphics. If you buy the bulleting outline update for $19.99 you get an insert printed. If you buy the presentation upgrade for $29.99 it will create a lifelike humanoid that will actually preach the message with various priced famous preacher skins. I tested the Charles Stantley skin and it worked well. One of my congregants couldn't believe I got Charles Stanley to make that video for our church.

Others to come. Maybe some of the other private beta testers will break their NDA and share their favorite cool bonus feature.

I have a feeling I'll need to buy more RAM for this...

Are they gonna charge more for the good-looking pastor skins?

And will Augustine, or better yet, Paul be available at release date?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Thecla might be a better choice anyway. Great sermons.

Is Luther going to be one of the options?

Thanks for mentioning that the sermon file is still coming. I used it for filing all my sermons in L3 and miss having it.

Hi Bob,

I was wondering about the 'video' capability in L4, when it may be added.

Thanks

if we meet and you forget me,

you have lost nothing.

But if you meet Jesus and forget Him,

you have lost everything.

I would expect to be paid to use this skin.

Mitchell,

Was that buy "more RAM" or "more HAM"?  Yes

Really Kevin, that was great!  Love it!

Very amusing guys!

Seriously though, what is the general policy about paying for major upgrades?

Are we likely to be charged for upgrading to Logos 5?

Why would a preacher need another one's skin?  The fame would go to another one.

Better try STYLES.

Let's say you have a message and you ask Logos to format it to Spurgeon's style.  Logos would check if you purchase the C.H. Spurgeon complete sermons collection and other books, and will reformat your style using the vocabulary and literary data it has.

You will have instant success with Logos.

So, The Benny Hinn style would render the first four rows unconscious?
