Has anyone who holds licences to the old files for Spurgeon's Sermons had a resource update yet?

Not yet. Do you know when it went live? (It can sometimes take a couple of days for all the orders/licenses to be processed.)

Richard, it was officially meant to go live on Jan. 3, and I received it yesterday (I'm one of the ones who didn't have this resource, and bought it new through CP.)

It would not be unexpected that those who paid for the upgrade get to move to the front of the line. I'm glad I didn't have to pay, and am content to wait. I still have the Ages version to use, if I have to.

I had several Wesleyan resources (Wesley, Beet, and others) in the old Ages format in Logos and had to pay to upgrade to the new format.

So if you don't have to pay any upgrade price consider it a great blessing.

I had the old collection and I received the new collection yesterday. I thought it might replace, as they seem identical but with additional tagging/indices; but they go into your library as new resources. If you have restarted, done "Update Resources", and still don't have it (assuming you got your email confirmation), then call them. If you have not gotten an email it may be that it's taking them some time to get them all out, and it would appear that upgrades and new purchases look the same to the system.

Getting an email suggests to me that you placed a Community Prining bid, and the emil notification includes a sentence telling you that your credit crd has been charged. Is that what you got? I f the answer is yes, then you are not one of those awaiting a free upgrade that this posting is addressed to.

Many years ago, a competitor named Ages Software offered Spurgeon's Sermons in their PDF format. Ages subsequently teamed with Logos to offer the set in Libronix format. Anyone with an active Logos account that owns that Libronix version that was marketed by Ages gets a free upgrade to this new release. The original poster of this thread is asking those who are entitled to the free upgrade if in fact they have received it yet. I am pretty certain those entitled o he free upgrade wlii not get any sort of email notification, provided they read the listing about the free upgrade and did NOT bid on the CP listing. 

I, like other responders who re awaiting the upgrade, have yet to receive it.

I got them last night about midnight, CST.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Yes, but the Wesley files were not the same content as the old files, while the Spurgeon files are.  The new files of Wesley's Journal contained a good bit of material that was not included in the old Jackson edition which was in the old Ages files.  Also, Logos made the old Ages Wesley files available on the iPad and in L5 format.  So you did not have to purchase the upgrade unless you wanted the additional content.  In fact, I still have both the old and new files of the Wesley material.

On the other hand, Spurgeons Sermons are the same sermons. 

That, at least, is the justification for having to pay to upgrade the Wesleyan Resources.

I do have an aged one, same 63 volumes, but on the web it is not grayed. If I get a free update, then why it isn't marked as I owned those resources?

It should be marked once your license points to the new resource. Once that happens, it should be available for download. I suspect that those of us who are getting the free upgrade from the Ages version, are being entered into the system manually (not that I really know). Expect it to take a few days, and don't expect it over the weekend.

I do not want to promote any spirit that is not filled with grace and thanksgiving, but I feel a compulsion within me to quote the exact wording Logos uses about the free upgrade in the product listing:

Do you already own the Ages edition of The Complete Spurgeon Sermon Collection (63 vols.) that was built for Libronix? Then you will receive this updated collection for free, and the files will automatically download when it is complete.

Is "when it is complete" equivalent with "sometime after it is complete", or "shortly after it is complete", or "within a week after it is compelte", or any of combination of time periods "after it is complete"? The Webster's definition of "when" that seems most fitting for the context used in the sentence is "just at the moment that". Perhaps Logos phrased the listing improperly, or did not consider fully what the simple word "when" communicates in this context. I will not be the first to cast a stone here, as I have certainly erred similarly many times. But please, Logos, communicate with us. Since the upgrade has clearly not been delivered automatically "just at the moment that" it is complete, tell us when it will be delivered.

Every time a "large" download comes, the release ends up being staggered. From posts in this thread, it is my understanding that both those who have paid for the upgrade and those who owned the previous resource have already started receiving the download. Remember: Patience is a virtue…

alabama24 is correct, I have had the older Age's version and the new Logos version has already downloaded.
