It's my understanding that Logos will soon release this newest version of the Westminster Morphology. When this occurs, will it be attached to the BHS text such that we'll automatically get it if we have the BHS with the 4.2 morphology? Will the names of the resources be differentiated in any way so we can be sure we are using the most recent version of the morphology?

It will be a separate resource with a different name: BHW 4.18. The Westminster text realily isn't the BHS, so it should not have been named that (there may have been some point in the history of the Westminster database when it matched some particular printing of the BHS, but if so it was a very long time ago). Both BHS and BHW follow the same manuscript, but they differ on how they read it and where they correct it. The Westminster database does note places they read the text differantly. In any event, the new version will not perpetuate the error of calling the text 'BHS'.

That would be a great improvement (both the update and the renaming).

If I were to rename the present BHS/WHM 4.2 what would be appropriate - I'm confused by the present 4.2 vs. 4.18?

Version numbers don't always work like decimals. Think 18 is higher than 2.

i suppose I'd rename the old one to BHW 4.2. Or BHW/WHM 4.2.

How will we acquire this resource when it is available? Will it be a separate purchase or included in a package?

Unfortunately, the right-of-the-decimal for the WTS text version is actually an integer. So 18 > 2.

Even numbers are shipping releases, odd numbers are developmental releases. So, prepare to be very confused if 4.20 is ever completed/released, as it will be very different from (and much newer than) 4.2.

I can always rename the current release as 4.02Smile
