1. What resources will I get to test?

You will be able to test two sets of resources: (1) the resources that are currently in your license and (2) if you have purchased a Logos 4 base package, crossgrade/upgrade, or minimal crossgrade, you'll be able to test those resources as well.

2. Will Logos 4 overwrite Logos 1?

No. Logos 4 is a completely different application from Logos 1. It will install alongside of Logos 1 and will not interfere with Logos 1's functionality (with the exception that Logos 4 will take over all libronixdls protocol links that it supports). We invite you to run them both on the same machines.

3. How many machines can I install Logos 4 on?

You may install Logos 4 on as many of your machines as you want in order to test it in a variety of scenarios.

4. Which operating system do you prefer I use?

You're welcome to use any OS that is Mac OS 10.5.8 or later.

5. What are the system requirements for Logos 4?

Operating Systems

  • Mac OS 10.5.8 or later

Hardware Requirements

The final hardware requirements for Logos 4 have not been established but at a minimum we would recommend:

  • Intel only (PowerPC is not supported)
  • 1.5 GB RAM
  • 8 GB hard drive space

Your feedback in tuning these requirements is appreciated.

6. How long will indexing take?

Indexing can vary significantly based on the speed of your computer and the number of resources that you have.

7. Why am I missing books that I know I should have?

8. Do I need to have Logos 1 installed on my Mac in order to install Logos 4?

No. Logos 4 has the ability to pull your resources down from the web. Additionally, Logos 4 can pull resources off of the Windows DVD if it is inserted when you first run the program.

8. Where can I get the latest download?

9. How do I report a bug?

Ryan,

How would you like us to respond to this release? Clearly a host of features are missing and the bugs and crashes are legion. I can't imagine that I would report any bugs that are not already know to you guys. Do you want us to hold off on bug reports for a bit and just enjoy watching as builds unfold?

What would you have us do with Time Machine? Is there a path / folder that we could / should exclude from Time Machine?

Martin,

Excellent question, I hadn't thought of that. Since Time Machine backs up every change, I don't think we want it backing up the index every time something is added/changed.

Will Logos 4 on Mac have the same feature set as Logos 4 on Windows?

That's the goal, though the full feature set is a few months behind. There will be updates of the Alpha every two weeks until it's complete.

Bob,

As new features are rolled out for the PC version will those features also be a few months behind on the Mac?

To test the alpha version, do I need to purchase Logos 4?

I just bought logos 4 today.  It crashes a lot and the indexer is using a crazy amount of system resources.  Logos4Indexer is using 1gig of memory.

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but this Mac Alpha is ONLY for those who've already participated in the Win beta right?

It's probably worth noting here that this list of missing features (and the associated projected updates schedule) applies to the Windows version of the software.

Additionally, because I don't see it linked in this thread already, everyone running the Mac Alpha will benefit from reading this: http://www.logos.com/mac/disclaimer

Hebrew fonts aren't being displayed in tools like BDB in Logos 4 for the Mac (at least on my machine). Is this normal for the present alpha? If not, is there a way to reinstall the appropriate fonts? They are, of course, showing up fine in Logos 1 for the Mac.

I'm having a similar issue, Mark, but it's inconsistent. For instance, I see nothing but question marks in Gesenius, but I do see Hebrew in the abridge BDB. And then, I cannot get the enhanced BDB to load at all.

That's interesting Rick. I have question marks in Gesenius and both versions of BDB, as well as the BHS.
