I've posted a ton (over the course of years) about typos in Logos' Qumran Sectarian Manuscripts. They have fixed some of them, but there have been so many errors in the implementation of this database that I never use it.

Tonight a friend was looking to read a little non biblical DSS Hebrew (not do extensive research) and asked me if this resource would work for him. He was thinking of buying it. So I thought I would look over it a bit once again.

I was very disappointed to see that after years numerous typos remain. I see 6 here within a few lines--5 final mems (ם) where there should be medial ones (מ), and one final kaf (ך) where there should be a medial one (כ).

I should also note that you still can't type in "1QS" and go to the beginning of this work. You have to type in "1QS 0:0".

Brian —

We actually have an update of QSM, rebuilt from newly supplied source files, that is in the queue. There are some data type issues that will be resolved with an update, and once that updated data type is available, a new version of the resource should follow.

Hope it helps.

Yes I'm always happy to see Logos improving it's fielded products!

Is there any way for users to report typos while reading books on an ios divice? I use it for reading books from Logos. But if I am unaware of how to do it, please let me know.

Not from within the app. The best thing to do would be to create a custom highlight style and note document, and review the typos from within L5.

This is an important feature that Logos should add because so many of us do the majority of our reading on mobile devices. I can't even count all the mistakes I've seen while reading but was unable to report them from my device.

Thank you alabama24 for the tip. I have to do it according to your tip while I wait for Logos to add the feature to its app.

It'll go out after 5.2a goes live (it's still a release candidate right now).

It may not happen the same day (the department that ships things may wish to wait for an official 5.2a resource compiler rather than releasing my builds that were made on a beta compiler, and they may wish to group this update with other updates to reduce download/index fatigue), but it should go out shortly after 5.2a - the work on the resource is done.

Really hoping this resource update ships soon now that 5.2 is out.

Please release the update to this resource. It is worthless as it stands.

Yeah, Jannie. Please release this! :) I don't know if Content Production is waiting for an official 5.2a resource compiler, or if they plan to bundle this with other resources going out later in the month; I haven't heard the official story. But rest assured, I want this out at least as much as you do and will be following up with them as often as I need to until this is shipped.

I'm passing the buck to Brandon. Stick out tongue 

Seriously though, its in the release queue, we just need some technical stuff to happen first. Stay tuned.

The update has shipped. The letter issues pictured in the screenshot above have been fixed, and navigation is much better. It even scrolls with Wise, Abegg, and Cook's translation. We'll see if they have all the issues worked out over the next couple days. So far, so good!

Much, much better indeed. Thanks, Logos!
