Can someone please help me understand what makes the "2.0" versions of the Textus Receptus different from the regular versions?

If I already have Scrivener's Textus Receptus (1894) With Morphology (SCR-TR) and The New Testament in Greek (Scrivener 1881), why do I need Scrivener's Textus Receptus (1881) 2.0 (SCR-TR)?

If I already have Stephen's Textus Receptus (1550) with Morphology (STV-TR) and The Interlinear Literal Translation of the Greek (Newberry Interlinear), why do I need Stephen's Textus Receptus (1550) Greek 2.0?

I may be missing it, but I see absolutely nothing on either the product pages or the "see inside" previews that tells me what makes the "2.0" versions better (or even different) compared to their "1.0"(?) counterparts.

I don't know about the 2.0 title, but the resources behind the product pages are not new, and in both cases are not morphologically tagged. I personally would not see any reason to buy them in addition to what you own.

Seems I have all of them so if someone needs me to compare them, let me know.

OK, so these do not appear to have any introductory or prefatory material based on the free preview, and people who own them say they are not morphologically tagged. Does ANYBODY know why these should be purchased? Faithlife just included one of them in the new Logos 7 Extended Feature Set:


Side note - the new feature set also includes this edition of the Westcott text:


Would love to know what makes that version different from the FOUR versions of the Westcott-Hort text I already have (in addition to the various editions of the Textus Receptus cited above). I feel like the number of duplicate public domain texts is getting out of hand here.
