The Logos Bible Software desktop application version 9.2 is now available to all 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.

This is a nice update, but I can't help but be somewhat disappointed that Dark Mode highlighting is still unusable.  For a feature that's listed as the #3 new feature on the Logos 9 product page it feels like the fixes are not high enough on the priority list. 

The highlighting palette has a very limited range of colors to choose from so I'm surprised that this wasn't thoroughly tested and fixed by now. 

I hope 9.3 will prioritize Dark Mode fixes

I downloaded it and restarted, but I don't see the "today in Christian history" card -- is there something else I need to see to enable this?

I'm in the same boat. I don't have a "Today in Christian History Card" for the Home Page. Also after reading the release notes, the software tells me I've updated to 9.2 but there are some features that I don't have that the Release notes say I should.

The card appears in the 'explore' section.

I thought it would be in the dashboard, so missed it as well!

I'm also not getting it appearing, even after enabling everything in the "Explore" section and  restarting Logos twice. Not a major problem to me, as I have so many cards in the "Dashboard" section I don't often even get down to the "Explore" section.

Does today in history require a certain data set or feature level to show up / run?

I do not see it either, looked in everything.

I've got Platinum and Connect so I'd be very surprised if I haven't got the appropriate level.

We are looking into fixing this.

I also do not see a "today in Christian history" card.  I also noticed that even though I have "pre-orders" unchecked in my settings, I'm still seeing cards for pre-orders.

EDIT:  I fixed it by unchecking "My Logos Messages"

I'm sorry for the confusion, everyone. 

This new card, and the corresponding Factbook section, requires a brand new dataset called "Today in Christian History." As a special thank you for everyone who has purchased/ will purchase a Logos 9 base package during the launch period, you'll get this new dataset for free. We are working on unlocking as we speak; you should see it on the home page later today, after restarting the software.

Philana, this release still has the freeze that I reported and Dave confirmed in BUG: Concordance guide in current beta ... and we never got a confirmation that FL acknowledged the problem. Fighting said freeze tonight has not put me in a good mood about this.

So....Verbum 9 owners and Verbum Now subscribers don't get this?  Still trying, after several years, what I get and don't get.    

Thanks

One thing that this specific feature highlights is that Logos doesn't do well with being left open overnight. It appears that the expected use case is for Logos to be closed and reopened daily.

I say this because the 'Today in Christian History' card does not update unless I press Refresh on the Dashboard. This is similar behaviour to Reading Plans saying 'tomorrow' when it is in fact today's reading (unless I restart the app).

Are there any plans to change that behaviour, or should I open a feedback suggestion?

Why do you think that is the case? I don't know the answer, but I would not assume that Adam's use of "Logos 9" necessarily excludes "Verbum 9" users as well. 

On the other hand... If the "Today in Christian History" leans heavily towards protestant events in history, I could see why this may not be included in those packages.

I say it because neither the card nor the dataset have shown up to my Verbum.  

As for it being heavily Protestant is entirely irrelevant to me...I have a lot of "Protestant" resources. 

Thanks

I understand, but there is a reason for having a distinct Verbum brand. Not everyone feels as you do, else there wouldn't be a separate program  "Verbum" at all. 

Hopefully Adam can clarify. If this is intended only for "Logos" users, you may be able to pick up an inexpensive L9 package if the feature would be of interest to you. (Browsing through the denominational packages can often be rewarding).
