To immediately update to the current beta enter the Update Now command. Otherwise, the app will automatically update the next time it's scheduled to check for updates.

Kudos on the improvements.  Logos just keeps getting better.  

This is especially nice: "The panel tab for the Notes Tool now uses the name of the open notebook."

My favourite part: 'The “Automatically Download New Resources” default now matches the setting of “Automatically Download Updates” setting for existing downloads.'

Thanks for updating the Release Notes to now include the new feature that Notes can be printed/exported - this is not completely new, but now the anchor is printed/exported. That's a great step forward!

One last thing to this: multiple anchors, anchors to non-bible items, to bible selections as well as bible highlights are fully supported - but the print/export of non-bible selection notes or highlights (while working, i.e. displaying the selected text) fails to include the resource from which the selection was taken/the anchor is chained to. This should be included before the ticket is closed as solved. Thanks!

I haven't seen the beta but I'm struggling to understand 'cloud resources preview'. Why have it be a preview and not fully streamed into the app, cached and then cleared when closed? The mobile app is doing something like this...

It's is fully streamed into the app. "Preview" doesn't mean limited pages. It means the whole resource, but without any of the additional controls (visual filters, highlighting, etc.).

Currently links don't work. I presume that's a bug. Footnotes pop up, but you can't click on links in footnotes.

It's very basic at the moment, but still really useful on laptops with small drives. I would hope that if it's used a lot, they'll start embedding resources from app.logos.com into the app.

This issue seems to have been overlooked and is still the case in RC1

We've got a case for this. Thanks for reporting this here.

Any chance of getting touchbar support on the mac?

You can do it 3rd party via BetterTouchTool in the App Store.
