The Byzantine Lectionary (Gregorian) ended with 31 August 2019. As the church year started 1 September, what is the timeline for updating the resource?

I thought I was having an individual issue but found Look for updated Lectionary resources on October 17, and realized its the same issue.

From what FL informed in another thread, it's in the works and coming within the calendar year, but as you saw, not early enough to seamlessly cover the orthodox church year

Faithlife should add this to their do list for each year.   One problem is that there are too few customers for Orthodox Products [and also other groups] so that Faithlife does not have a manager for the product.

We will have the Byzantine lectionary work done by the end of the calendar year.  It is likely we'll have it done before that but these lectionaries are very complicated and take time to work through.

We'll post an update to this thread when we have more information.

What happened to the plan to make any lectionariy in Verbum work independent of the real year?  That is to not require that changes be made every year. [[That is enter any date and get correct listings of the readings for that date]]   [[Then Orthodox may need to move from Logos to Verbum]] 

Or is that date fix proving as difficult as importing PBBs into mobile devices?

That is actually a very complex problem. However, segregating the ordo portion from the lectionary portion would make maintenance simpler and permit a feature to allow the user to customize for their diocese.

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

This is pretty much the most important feature of the software for me. And it’s been nonfunctional this month. May as well go back to print if Verbum is not committed to maintaining the Byzantine (Revised Julian) lectionary.

It's being worked on. It's turned out more complex than we anticipated.

Will the fix be a permanent fix, or is this something we will have expect to happen again?

Not "permanent" but the plan is to push it out as far as possible like we did earlier this year with our other lectionaries.
