The Logos Bible Software desktop application version 9.0 SR-2 is now available to all Logos 9 users.

To immediately update to the current stable version, enter the Update Now command. Otherwise, the app will automatically update the next time it's scheduled to check for updates.

Thank you!  That fixed my Docs crash!

Does command Set Update Channel to Stable cause an update ?

Philana,

Still no update notification in Logos itself (the little blue circle) when I update. I actually updated before this thread and didn't know what the SR-2 contained!!

This is the same on 2 separate computers (a laptop and my surface pro).

Same for me. So I downloaded the application and did a manual install.

You might check your version ... mine updated to SR-2 without any notification at all that it was updating, so maybe your's did too.

In my case, I was just notified that I was downloading 209mb of updates. Looking at the ”about” section confirmed it was SR-2

Thanks for your reply.

Yes it updated on my systems too but my point was as you confirmed ‘without any notification at all’.

Logos used to notify users of any and every update (application, resources, datasets etc) via the notification icon (little blue circle). It works fine for resources but not for application upgrades anymore (as far as I can tell - and now others seem to be seeing the same). Hence it is a bug that Philana needs to look at!

Thanks again and every blessing.

I'm glad users are notifying Philana about unexpected behaviors. I'm a little different from James' experience. I got a "blue dot" notification when the application updated to SR1 and asked if I wanted to restart. But SR2 updated without notification. I'm able to find the release notes in these Forum posts (thank you, Philana!) but understand why users who don't frequent the forums would desire "blue dot" release note links.

We are aware of the release notes issue, but we're not sure why this is occurring.

I look forward to a solution when you have tracked it down.

For reference (to link to your case):

It doesn't seem to make a difference whether Logos has been running for a long or short time.

It happens on all my systems running Win 10 Pro with latest updates

I didn't get the 'blue dot' notification for any L9 updates (but worked fine for new resources and datasets)

Not sure how much help that will be. I'm willing to try anything you suggest.

Was this functionality perhaps disabled for secret pre-launch beta testing and then accidentally not re-enabled?

I turned off automatic updating back with version 8 when I still was stuck with some dinosaur machines. I still have this in effect. Logos 9 has updated flawlessly since 8.17 SR-1 on Monday morning. Three times is charmedGeeked

Philana,

The "download link" in your post goes to a page with the sub-heading "How to Install Logos 8 Bible Software."

And when I run the LogosSetup.exe there, it says I'm already running the latest version. And I'm on 8.17 SR-1, 8.17.0.0014.

That is correct. Access to the Logos 9 beta installers requires the purchase of a Logos 9 package.

A free Logos 9 package will be available sometime early in the new year.

Andrew,

Thanks for solving the confusion.

Now please go one step further, and correct Philana's original post which says "version 9.0 SR-2 is now available to ALL users." (my emphasis).

That will help everyone immensely!

Hi Andrew,

Ah yes, I see Philana's original post now reads "now available to all Logos 9 users." That really doesn't help though. The title for this whole thread is "Version 9 is now available." Well, that's not exactly what it says, but that will be how many people will understand it, unless they read to the very bottom of this thread, and see what you wrote.

What you wrote in your post should be in the very top post, something like:  "Version 9 is available ONLY to people who buy a version 9 upgrade. The free version will be available some time in 2021."

Hi Andrew,

Even better than my last couple of suggestions: Make a brand new post with that basic information that Version 9 is available only to people who buy the upgrade. Then make it so that post remains at the top of "Logos 9 Desktop App" forum. So it will always be the first thing people see when they come to the version 9 topic. (Probably do the same for

That way, you don't go through this hassle every time a new update notice is posted.
