Kyle G. Anderson:
No. We're in the process of updating the non-Auflage NA28 (LLS:NA28 2016-06-03T16:37:36Z NA28.logos4) so it will be identical with the Auflage (LLS:NA28GBS). (It should have the glosses as well.) I don't have the exact dates but that will be done in the next month or two.

Our plan moving forward will be to functionally deprecate LLS:NA28GBS since it's owned by less people than LLS:NA28. Realistically I doubt there will be any changes to either once LLS:NA28 is updated.

Kyle, I am glad Faithlife is planning on improving the non-Auflage version, but it makes me a little nervous to hear that the Auflage version is scheduled for functional depreciation. Not only does it include a significant amount of prefatory material exclusive to that edition, but it also contains one additional index and five additional search fields not currently available in the non-Auflage version. Will all of these things make it into the non-Auflage if that is to be the favored edition going forward?

Matthew, hopefully the non-Auflage will be identical in every respect as Kyle said. I agree, I would hate to lose some of the features and functionality of the Auflage version!

John, I do not think we have to worry about losing anything per se - I am 100% confident Faithlife would not do that - I just do not want to have go back and forth between two versions of the NA28 depending on my needs at the moment. I would rather have one "master copy" to use exclusively. So far for me that has been the Auflage version. As I mentioned earlier, the only thing it seems to lack is the glosses, and Kyle indicated those will be coming at some point.

I don't want anyone to lose anything. Right now we're selling two versions of the NA28 which is really confusing. We would prefer to carry only one. In order to have that happen we already updated LLS:NA28 to point to the apparatus text. Now we're in the process of adding new fields, fixing some typos, and adding the front matter. This will bring LLS:NA28 to parity with LLS:NA28GBS in terms of content.

Yes Thanks Kyle. That's great!

Very happy that a better, unified product is in the works. A little sad that I bought them both.

Kyle,

Just saw the non-Auflage NA28 was updated. What updates were made? Where does this put us in regards to the two editions of NA28 being equal?

Also, is there a location where we can see the specific changes each time a resource is updated? (So I don't have to bug you or others in the forums?)

Thanks!

John

Unfortunately, we'll also have another update in two weeks. I was out on vacation and didn't get a change in that I wanted to get in. Sad

In this update we made a few changes:

  • We updated the display of some apparatus indicators so they work better in the Bible Text Only Visual Filter.
  • We updated Old Testament Quotations so that they're now italics. They also received ot-quote fields to make them better searchable.
  • Starting at approximately 1 Corinthians 7 we updated the placement of the cross reference indicators.

In the next update you'll see that it includes

  • The front matter
  • The back matter

Once this update goes out the two volumes should be virtually identical. The only significant difference that I know about is that the morph tagging for LLS:NA28 will include a gloss whereas LLS:NA28GBS will not.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

As far as your second question goes:

We used to have someone in marketing that wrote a monthly blog post about what went into the last months resource updates.

I could probably write a forum post that listed the resource updates and what went into those updates whenever we push out updates.
