Logos 5.2 release notes say of the New Tab Panel:

Logos 5.2 release notes:

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.

Exploring the options provided by the New Tab Panel is a good way to understand how the developers of Logos anticipate your use of the product. It is tailored to your resources and your recent use of the software.

1. To begin the experiment, enter "Baptism of the Holy Spirit" into the Go box of the Home Page. This will open a default topic layout:

2. The left tile has a Topic Guide and a Sermon Started Guide (theme version). If one clicks on the + tab, the New Tab Panel will open with  Search, Tools, Documents and Guides on the right side; a mixture of resources and tools that have been recently used appear on the left although they do not simply repeat the History tool information.

3. In the upper right tile has the highest priority Bible. When you click on the + tab to open the New Tab Panel, on the right one gets the list of parallel resources. On the left the results are similar to the previous case.

4. A similar panel opens in the lower right pane which contains Bible dictionaries.

5. More interesting is the Logos resource list when I open from a pane that contains only Aquinas' Summa Theologica in English. Note the orange bar indicating the original resource in the tile. The resources listed here are not simply what one could access via parallel, series or equivalent resources. A Logos algorithm suggests these titles.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
