As with last time the msi downloaded is still 9.4, in the past these have been updated in sync with the announcement.

I'm not sure what you mean here, John. How are you downloading the msi? Using what url?

Release Notes

As much as I appreciate all the bug fixes & new features, this is one of the most disruptive (irritatingly so) releases I can remember. While using the software for sermon prep, I lost count of how many times it'd SEPARATELY download one or several new resources, then tell me new resources were ready to be installed as soon as app was restarted. Each time, it'd then index all resources again. Once, maybe even twice, & I don't think anything about it. (On my laptop, indexing only takes a few minutes, & it doesn't slow down anything I'm doing while it's going on.) But over 20 minutes, this was a constant process. What DID disrupt me was restarting Logos, TRYING to work in Word, then having Logos put EVERY SINGLE WINDOW in front of what I'm working on, serially, as the startup sequence gets to them (my layout has 4). I no sooner alt-tab back to my work, then here comes another. How rude! (ala Stephanie Tanner, in Full House, LOL) 

Here's my plea:

  1. PLEASE download all the datasets & resources at once & index only once! Twice at most. Disruption for 20 minutes----REALLY????
  2. PLEASE do NOT steal the focus just because Logos has started running. Allow it to come up in the background.

Thanks for listening. I ask forgiveness for any "tone." 

Grace & Peace,
Bill

I only got that message once. I only restarted Verbum once. So something odd has happened in your case.

Could it be a "penalty" of fast machine / internet & 7981 resources? It downloads a few, pauses, I think it's done & restart? I was using Logos / Word actively (or at least trying to) throughout.

Grace & Peace,
Bill

I can confirm that I also got the message and download several times.

I have a fast machine and so far I received that message at least three times. I was fully up to date prior to this patch and I agree with BillS that this is annoying.

Hi John,

I'm unable to recreate your issue. That link downloaded and installed correctly.

I don't understand why it is happening, but you are misunderstanding John's issue. When he FIRST tried to download L9.4, it downloaded L9.3 (SEE HERE). When he FIRST tried to download L9.5, it downloaded L9.4 (SEE HERE). Subsequently, in both cases, the link ended up downloading the right engine. 

Can this be a cache issue on his side? Your side?

The link specified is not reused. It's brand new for every release. I don't see a way for that URL to have pointed to the wrong file.

My logos updated but now it crashes before I can even use it.  Also on my desktop as well as my laptop.  It didn't crash before the update. I tried restarting the program and that doesn't help.

We are working to get a fix out for this crash as soon as possible. If you're launching with a layout that includes the Library panel try launching to a blank layout as a work around.

Instructions for starting with a blank layout and be found here

Carl,

I have a similar problem. I can open Logos and load a layout, but anytime I click the library tab to open a book it crashes Logos. I spent over an hour with tech support trying to fix the problem. It seems to be a known bug with the metadata in the library. I was told it may possibly be fixed with Logos 9.6. Until then, I was told to work offline so there is no need to buy any new books, download my Wordsearch books, or try to prioritize my books. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it still does not work. Every time I am online and try to open my library tab to open a book, it crashes. It worked fine under 9.4. Hopefully more people have this problem and the problem will have to be addressed before 9.6.

It appears that Faithlife knows about this issue and is working on it but just in case....

Just upgraded to 9.5.0.0014 Running on macOS 10.14.6

When the library pane is opened the program crashes.

Tried rebooting... no good

Closed "almost" every other piece of software (kept TeamViewer running in the background).

attached are the logs after the last crash if that helps any...

I'm sorry for those who are having problems, but this is why you always set "automatically start downloads" to no and never install new versions on release day.

Yeah, me too. Logos works as expected until you open the Library...then an immediate crash.
