Bradley, seeing as RC's aren't indicated as such in the "About Logos Bible Software" panel.

Could you please give us also the number - is 4.0a = 4.01.3.4533?

Yes Yes

Lots to like here, but folks will really be impressed with the Bible Search Analysis view. Nothing like this ever before in Logos.

Thanks for adding an entry for currently opened Notes files to the right click menu (ie "Add a note to ____").  I'd still prefer if I could choose the last three-five without opening them first, but this improvement definitely makes Notes usable for me.

Bradley--definitely one of the cooler avatar/thumbnail shots.  Do you have a Samurai pony tail in the background???  Bono would be proud of the shades.

Bradley and team: thank you for all your work on making Logos 4 so usable! Wow.

  • Firstly, thanks for the bug fixes. (Though I've not been affected by many, IMHO the quality of the software is paramount, so good work.)
  • Love the search analysis grid. Need some time to play with this and experience its grunt.
  • Someone had creative fun with F9 for 'Explain this screen.' Will use this with my students as the summary for demo sessions on L4.
  • Collapsible highlight sessions make it easy to find/use the additional highlights.
  • Looking forward to using 'Cited by' and other updates.

Hope you guys get to enjoy a great Christmas break with family and friends. You deserve it!

I think it would be AWESOME if one of the regular video making gurus would make a user video that displays the new features for 4.0a.

Any takers?

Now there's a message to scare new users - 'Logos Bible Software is indexing (80 hours remaining)'.  Down to 6 hours a little while later.

I've got 8 processors humming away, re-crunching the indexes...estimate is 6 hours to go--WARNING: if you are in the middle of intense Bible study, don't force an update early...

My wife was pleasantly suprised that we got more functionality at no cost...keep these coming--it takes her attention off the upgrade price ;-)

I miss the capability I had in v3 to have the Gk (audio bible) read to me & hope that gets rolled out soon in v4.  I'd also love to get a similar capability for the Hebrew.

Thank you to the coders!

Wow!  My trackball finally works like it should.  I can now start using L4 seriously and will stop complaining about my "very expensive piece of beta software."

Joyeaux Noel,
