Logos 6.0a (6.0.1.0032) is available for download.

If you have automatic updates turned on, 6.0a will be downloaded automatically the next time your system checks for updates. To install it right away, enter the Update Now command. 

Release Notes

This release features:

  • Numerous bug fixes, including support for a potential fix to the download stalling issue for users on Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite. (Note this fix is optional currently - it will be default in a later release if no further issues are discovered.)
  • Numerous crash fixes, in many sections of the app, including the "Too many open files" error on Mac which was affecting many users.
    • Fixed several crashes/hangs in the Visual Copy tool.
  • "Courses" on the Home Page has been moved to the sidebar.
  • Improved the localization coverage in the UI, particularly for Spanish.
  • Updated the version of CEF, which improved font rendering in the Home Page and Interactives.
  • Added Info panels and Citation support to Atlas, Bible Sense Lexicon, Factbook, and Timeline.
  • Added Keynote support for Visual Copy.

Super, but I'm wondering what's actually going on with the community tags problem(s). Graham said it was being worked on. I wonder are they really, or is this something they'll soon tell us that they *plan* to fix in the *near* future & on & on it goes. Why am I hoping I'm wrong on this?  :-)

Release Notes

We have added support for using Apple’s newer URL downloading APIs, which may help with the download issues with OS 10.10 Yosemite.

At this time it is optional and can be enabled by typing the following command into the Terminal OS X application:

  • defaults write com.logos.Logos UseURLSession -bool YES

I take it the command in Terminal for Mac users only has to be entered once in the Terminal Command bar and that's it done? At least that is what I have done (following my iMac's inability to download L6.0a and the E.A. Sophocles collection in one go!).

Every blessing

Yes, thanks! That's a good thing to clarify. Running that command in Terminal once will change the download API, there is no need to run it again.

Thanks for being so diligent in improving the product.

The fonts on the homepage looks better.

The ability to click on the heading in an inline search is a welcome feature; however, having it open a new copy of the resource each time is less than ideal. (I don't, however, know what would be a better alternative as each possibility has its disadvantages.)

Hi,I am not an expert on computer. I face the download issue. I am on Yosemite 10.10.1 and Logos 6 with a MacBook Air. Can you provide a step by step guide on carrying out this remedy? Thank you.

Thanks for the prompt reply, alabama24. 

One more question: What is the purpose of doing step 4, "Type set update channel to default (or stable) in the L6 command bar." Do I have to do this?

Thank you and God bless.

Not if you followed the current instructions and downloaded from the link. 

(If you followed the older instructions about setting the update channel to beta, then, yes, you should set it back to default or stable.)

The purpose of that step is to make sure you don't unexpectedly receive a beta version in the future by changing the channel. Beta testing can be fun, but it should only be done in caution... By its very nature, beta testing is "buggy." There are times where a beta build might mean you have to wipe your install clean... Not something you would want to do if you are writing a sermon or a term paper!
