I know the Old Testament has yet to be released, but I am curious if there is any idea when it might be released?

I've wondered if it's still even being worked on.  The website (http://www.orthodox-church.info/eob/) hasn't even been updated since 2012.  I really hope they are.  I've been using the New Testament, and really like it.

I don't know... I hope so too, I do know that the OSB was released several years later than planned and in some ways they had a simpler time of it for starting with the NKJV and seeing where it needed to be corrected to come in line with the LXX.  And then I look to the Philokalia  Volumes 1-3 came out rather quickly, 4 was there and 5 while being worked on seems no where near publication. I remember seeing that 2012 date back in 2011 and thinking there would be the slimmest of a chance of that happening. However if it has been worked on all this time it must be coming close to being done. We do have N.E.T.S. but a complete E.O.B. would be very nice. And while I do not mind the O.S.B. it's translation choices married so closely to the NKJV is less than ideal in my mind.

I've tried emailing them from the site's contact information to ask that very question a few times. I have never received a response. I suspect it is dead :(

Same here but since FL publishes the NT of the EOB I thought the might have some insight and a contact that might reply to them.
