The more I use the WBC the more typos I see. I report them but it would seen to me that this resource should be by now almost free of typos. Most of the set has been out for a while now.

The most recent one I found today is from 1 Peter 3:4:

                           note the “incorruptible” inheritance ot 1:4, the redemption

It should read “of” not “ot”. I’m finding multiple typos when reading almost any section. It also causes me concern with the original languages that are quoted because I know very little Greek and no Hebrew so I wonder at times when Greek words don’t look quite right if their typos.

Anyone else seem to find a lot of typos in the WBC set?

Another issue I see is that it is still missing alot of tagging/linking of refrences.

The last updates of the Logos versions of WBC are 2006 for many, 2007 for some, none since Logos 4 came out - so it is way past due for an update. I believe they are all still the Libronix format (.lbxlls) also! Come on Logos, update please!

Hmm - I have 3 logos4 files for wbc...  Vols. 20, 23a, and 52b - all with 2010 file dates.  Rest of them are Libronix with 2009 file dates.  Of course the internal build date may be older. 

I agree that it would be quite advantageous to have these resources more fully tagged - but this is admittedly quite a bit of work.

I just happened to accidentally find the post below from April 28, and remembered this thread:

the WBC set will go into an update cycle very soon, since some of the volumes has lots of typos, and its one of our more popular sets.

Looks like it's in the works.

And you are missing an "e" on the word "references." Stick out tongue Angel

Thanks for updates! But I haven't received updates files for WBC08 (vol. 8, Judges), WBC23A (vol. 23A, Ecclesiastes) and WBC52B (vol. 52B, Revelation 6–16). Can anyone else confirm this? Thanks, Martin.

WBC08 was suppose to go out, I'll follow up on why not.

WBC23A and WBC52B will be released soon. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Checked.  For some reason, I do not own WBC08.
