Craig St. Clair (Faithlife):

It will be a couple of months depending on other things we've got in the pipeline.

Seven  months would be fine for me. I'll plan to be in U.S. in the end of June 2020.

Gold package, and original language material and ancient text material, SIL and UBS books, discourse Hebrew OT and Greek NT. PC with Windows 8.1

I'd bet (not much), you're looking at Verbum packages this fall. Prepub-ers next spring. When people sign up, it's only to add another line in their libraries ... no Logos customer actually 'needs' books, and thus no rush.

that is disappointing then.  I will not support any new additions in the future and cancel the ones I have in place.

It's getting close. The resource itself is finished but because it's a Bible we have to do additional development work that needs to line up with application shipping cycles.

Everything is looking like it'll be on target for shipping to customers in mid-March.

You appear to be reacting to the speculation of a fellow Logos/Verbum user. This resource requires a great deal of tagging and linking. It is not reasonable to expect it to be produced quickly; if it were we would be complaining about quality. Faithlife has a history of releasing resources at a fairly steady pace - and informing us of difficulties causing a delay when we ask.

Guilty as charged.  I should have not reacted so quickly.  Thanks for the info on the status.

Still have my fingers crossed for mid March. But anxious here.

They have to re-build some of the shelves in the library (since it's a not-a-Bible, but needs to go on the same shelf with the Bibles). I can hear hammering and sawing, whenever I look in my Logos library. Now, whenever the janitor starts up, that's the key. The librarian already has the card catalog ready.

I think Kyle G. Anderson is trying to say - without revealing disclosures about the next version of Logos / Verbum - that there are additional features being rolled on then and not only does this book have to be coded to work with all the current features of Logos/Verbum, but it additionally has to work in the next version.  A Logos Bible isn't just a FaithLife novel where only simple hyperlinks exist to source material quoted in a book, Logos / Verbum is very tightly integrated with the other books so that searches for original Greek and Hebrew can be done, I'm sure that if you just wanted a text file of this bible, they could provide it now, but I don't want a text file, I want this to be as excellent as the rest of the resources I have. Perhaps Mr. Kyle G. Anderson could give us a simple explanation of the complicated work that needs to  be finished  for this work. I understand that when the Boss says "Don't release the book until it works completely with the next version of software, you have to do what he says.

Actually, study Bibles are notes. And Kyle is super-busy. No rush for me ... need those new shelves to be perfect.

David J. Ring, Jr.:

Is a reverse interlinear suppose to be a part of the this new edition?

Well, reading the product page, and then notes, apparently there's a Bible and notes. No mention of interlinear, though that would be nice. Is NABRE interlinear ... Jerusalem, even better. And apparently the 3rd edition of the Bible might be superior ... I want the 2nd edition notes.

I can't speak for the product team on when they'll ship it but I can say it won't be available until after March 17. It's shipping with a new Bible data type and won't have application support on Desktop and mobile until after March 17, which is when Logos 8.12 ships.

Thank you. I also now understand the date, meaning it couldn’t be released till then. I do thank you for clarifying things.

I know the required release has only just been released but now that it is here since the work was done in January is there any one from the team who can give insight on when we might be seeing the NJB released?

Soon! I've got two screens up right now and it's literally on my left monitor. I'm cleaning up a couple of things and then will be confirming full application support across platforms.
