If other users are like me, I have expense money that I need to use before the end of the year. Conferences were cancelled so I have extra money this year that can be put toward a nice upgrade.

I'm sure FL will take that into account.Wink

November 3rd would be perfect. Absolutely nothing else going on around that time. Wink

I figure I’ll play catch-up with my preferred package when upgrading to 9 (Verbum). Then I’ll check on what resources I can get for cheap on other base package upgrade. I recall in past version upgrades, they had discounts for awhile.

I tried to count every possible package, including Basic, Fundamentals, Features, etc. and came up with 95.

My pocketbook hopes it is still at least a year away. Wink

You should probably wait for a year to upgrade anyway for them to work out all the bugs and add back all the features if the Logos 8 rollout was any indication.

Even then, that search is sadly still missing the excellent Verbum Clergy Starter package. So many base packages! Could be worse. There might be fewer of them.

Logos9 is rumored to include what is being called the Combo Package. A Logosian selects which packages to check the dynamic content, and then it re-packages to offer the lowest price in a single pass (obviating the need to test the 9,768 possible combinations).

I was offered a “combo“ package Gold which contained several resources from all the denominational base packages.  It was specially curated, but it must’ve been an inside special offer because they never released it to the public.

Call it combo or whatever but it existed since I received the offer.  Maybe they’re saving it for L9 release day.

"When" Logos Logos #9 comes out... Just buy the ULTIMATE...

That way you won't have to worry about spending all that time trying to figure out which packages to pick up! (You just have to figure out how to pay for it...)

Ain't I just the clever one? Cool   Just think of all the Dy-no-mite Dy-nam-ic pricing you'll get to take advantage of later on! Stick out tongue

I got Verbum 8 Ultimate because I had a sudden influx of money I had to spend down. I’m hoping 9 Ultimate won’t be much more than buying the tools for 9

This may give a clue: https://www.logos.com/wordsearch-faq

Here you will fine:

I’ve heard that Logos 9 is expected to be released this year. Should I wait before considering an upgrade?

When Logos releases a new software version, we celebrate the event with discounts for everyone. However, the special upgrade offers for eligible Wordsearch customers are better than what you might expect during a Logos launch event. Plus, with dynamic pricing, any upgrade you make during the Logos 9 event will be further discounted for features or resources you’ve already purchased. You can upgrade today with confidence.

They certainly don't deny that L9 is coming out this year. Maybe it'll be an "October Surprise."

They don’t confirm it either, so who can say?

Does anybody remember how much advance warning we had for 8?

None... we never do. However, Bob has previously stated that FL is on a 2 year cycle, so it would be unexpected if it did NOT come this calendar year.

I forget for sure whether/how badly Logos.com crashed last time, but that wasn't really "advance".
