Release Notes

This release includes:

Guides
   Added an 'Edit guide template' option to the context menu for new Guides.

Library
   Implemented "Search this resource" to context menu in Library.
   Added narrated resource icon next to resources that have associated audio resources

Localization
   Added Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, and Korean Bible data types.
   Search fields are now localized for Spanish, Italian, and a over half of German.

Navigation
   Made navigation more sensitive to Hebrew and Greek marks. For example, previously double-clicking the root עֵזֶר would take you to I עזר, even though the better match is I עֵזֶר.
Improved the resource distribution algorithm: (See [[this thread >> http://community.logos.com/forums/p/76164/533085.aspx]].)
   Resources will now default to opening on the right, while guides/documents will open on the left; only applies to the first panel opened in a blank layout.
   New resources opened will now prefer to distribute evenly among panels, rather than clustering on the left, assuming the two panels have similar content.
   The algorithm considers each group of tab types within the panel individually, e.g. resources, guides and note documents, rather than picking one tab to represent the contents of all the tabs in the panel.

New Tab Panel
Improved the usability of the New Tab Panel. Suggested options are now based on the last active panel:      All new tabs will provide a prioritized list of your frequently used resources/documents.
   Opening from a resource will show a list of parallel resources or those with similar references.
   Opening from a non-resource will provide shortcuts to Documents/Tools/Guides, or similar elements (History, Cited By, etc.)
   Click to open the page items in the same panel or drag and drop an item to open it and preserve the current New Tab list.
   The right-side column is now resizeable. (See [[this thread >> http://community.logos.com/forums/t/24819.aspx]].)

Passage Lists
   Implemented "Save as Passage List" to the context menu of several Guide sections, Bible Facts sections, and the 'Cross References' section of the Explorer tool.
   When saving search results as Passage Lists, the list will now open in the same panel as the corresponding Search. Also applies to saving as Bibliography, Collection, and Word List. (See [[this thread >> http://community.logos.com/forums/t/13863.aspx]].)

Prayer List 
   Implemented Group Prayer Lists that can now be shared with an existing Faithlife group. Each member of the group may add/view prayer request items.

Resource Panel
Panels moved to a floating window should return to their original location when docked:
   The simple case of floating one panel in a tab, then redocking it should work as expected.
   Panels floated from a floating window and redocked should go back to the window they were floated from.
   If a panel is floated and the tile it originated from no longer exists, it will use the existing clustering algorithm.

Search Panel
   Implemented linguistic sensitivity for original language searches, including items such as breathing marks and accents. (See [[this page for a list of commands >> http://wiki.logos.com/Search_Matching_Commands]].)

Smart Selection
   Smart Selection has been implemented for select resources (See [[this thread for more info >> http://community.logos.com/forums/t/76157.aspx]]), and a toggle has been added to Program Settings.
   Smart Selection allows for text selection based on word, clause, sentence, and paragraph groupings. Holding Alt/Option will allow normal selection, and Alt/Option+RightClick will select the word's logical cluster.
   Implemented Smart Selection based on words in all resources (when smart selection is turned on) even if more detailed smart selection data is unavailable.

Sweet update! Seems all round snappier on mac. The scrolling speed with the ESV is now super fast even with the reverse interlinear line visible!

Should we be seeing the updated resources mentioned below download for 5.2 Gold Version that download for the beta version? The release notes point to the thread below and hence give the impression that they should download but don't see any recent updates to them in my library.

Dylan Rondeau:

To go along with the new Smart Selection feature added in the 5.2 Beta, we will be republishing 10 resources that have been compiled with Smart Selection data. This update should only download for users with 5.2 Beta 1 installed. We'd like users to specifically test these resources and the Smart Selection feature once they are available.

The resources that are being republished are:

  • The Bible Knowledge Commentary
  • Easton's Bible Dictionary
  • English Standard Version
  • Faithlife Study Bible
  • Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional
  • Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible
  • The Lexham Bible Dictionary
  • The Lexham English Bible
  • Morning and Evening
  • Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (Eleventh Edition)

Smart Selection allows for text selection based on word, clause, sentence, and paragraph groupings. Holding Alt/Option will allow normal selection, and Alt/Option+RightClick will select the word’s logical cluster. There is now a toggle for Smart Selection under Program Settings, so please ensure that it is enabled.

Those resources will not be released for download at this point. We have implemented word-based and paragraph-based smart selection for all resources, and we're still discussing what the future plans for smart selection are. We'll update the forums once that's been decided, and in the meantime I'll update the link in the release notes to the more recent forum thread with the optional download. We still welcome more feedback! Smile

This always looked to be a premature release for this feature and now we have the confirmation (no harm is done other than a lack of communication and ignoring comments from beta testers!).

When updating on my Macbook Pro Retina, we are stuck on the Synchronizing Screen for about 10minutes. Is this normal or not?

You should have 4 GB RAM, Intel CPU (Core 2 Duo, i3, i5 or i7), 20 GB (but less is probably enough) HDD, hybrid disk or SSD free. No You won't loose any functionality:

Hi Karen:

If you're referring about updating to Logos 5, the minimum system requirements are OS X 10.6.X (Snow Leopard)

It is usually better to start a new thread than to post on an old thread.
