Hi

Will this new upcoming update be the 5.3 version that requires Mac users to upgrade to Mavericks? 

Thanks

Not sure what you mean by "the massive update" but Logos 5.3 will require Mavericks or higher for Mac users as per http://community.logos.com/forums/t/80475.aspx

Sigh.  Looks like I'll need to update on Oct 25 to catch the Hebrew Discourse and avoid the 'massive update'.

I feel like I'm on a game show in Japan .... as the target.

While I know you know what you are doing Denise, for others I feel a need to clarify that one can postpone (but generally not avoid) updates with impunity.

The "massive update" is an update of resources to use a feature already in the software. As for the 5.3 update - I know nothing as I'm not a Mac user

What is needed in a case like this is that L5 should automatically "reboot" after the download is complete in order to commence the indexing. Perhaps a menu choice in "Program Settings" would provide that for those who would rather choose the time to index?

And, BTW, what does LOGOS mean by "Late on Sunday, October 26..."?? "Late" to me is 9:00p.m. here on the "right coast". Big Smile  Another reason to have the option for an auto-reboot.

God bless

I second the motion. Download and forget it.

Put a warning message similar to what I get in windows. This software will restart in .... minutes. Click here to delay it by 10, 20, 1 hour. etc..

As I suggested in another thread (don't have it handy), Logos should get rid of the need to "reboot" at all when resources are added. I don't need to restart my Kindle app when I add new books. I don't need to restart SQL Server when I insert 1,000 new rows (or any number). The newly-added and/or updated resources are merely data. Just make it work.

My $.02 ...

I believe this is on their radar.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Will this be an "always on feature"?

I've NEVER liked this option in Word! I choose letter-by-letter with my mouse.

This feature was designed  for those with Smart Phones.

Hopefully, for those of us who are worried about "bloat" or the frequently "non-responding" pizza wheel -- If we keep the setting on "NO" --  will that help prevent the lag time? [And before one of you tell me to buy a SSD--I would love one of those marvelous devices but at this point finances prevent this option].

I don't understand this comment - you can't run Logos 5 on Smart Phones??

To answer the original question, Bradley says that "All these resources are fully compatible with 5.2b SR-5, so 5.3 isn't necessary."

I have this featured turned off and I don't really like it... Let me throw my MSFT loving friends a bone: If Logos were to be working on more "touch screen" friendly UI elements for devices such as the Surface Pro, I would think users would want this. 

I agree with you Graham. I don't have any idea where Steve came up with the smart phone thing.
