Read the list of suggestions in the Logos 9 suggestions post or read user voice and you will know as much as everyone except Faithlife employees and beta testers. And, as usual, Faithlife employees and beta testers aren't talking.

Does it mean  Faithlife will base logos 9 completely on suggestions?

Blessings in Christ.

No more so than usual - they do listen to their users but sometimes they take a broader view of the software industry in how they fulfill their users' desires.

And sometimes they do stuff because relevant people within Faithlife itself, like Bob, think it's cool or otherwise worth doing. Seems to have worked well enough for the first eight versions....

What can be expected?

1. You will have less money

2. You will have more books than what you need..... again.

3. You will have more books than you can read in your whole life.... again

4. They will use overused keywords like ...... fast, stay organized, best yet, innovative, life-changing, powerful, SIMPLE..... yupe those cringe keywords. 

Party!!!

What use is going back to biblical times without good maps? Big Smile

For my own works flow, Logos is a digital research assistant more than an ebook reader. Yes I use it to read books but primarily I use it to find and collate data for the task I am doing (Bible study, sermon prep, home group study, theological reflection, etc.) to that end whether I read every book from cover to cover is not a huge consideration to me. What is more important is ‘Will this book/resource add value to my library by enable more effective research?’. 

Others may see it differently, I’m cool with that.

We’re getting Carta! (Bring print edition when transporting, as computers in biblical times don’t meet Logos requirements.)

Thanks to FL for including Carta and a Hebrew audio bible in Logos 9!

I concur with your assessment.

Blessings in Christ.
