 ... then in the meantime to fill the gap FL will continue to offer sales in order to keep up their cashflow and form time to time in those sales we'll all pick up something of interest. ...

Yes! In fact, just forget Logos 8, and offer more great sales. The expansions are hard to say no to.

Or even better, offer Logos5 ... that was a really good one. Fast and fat-free.

David Paul:

My hope is that when it does come out, there will be a significant restructuring of the base packages, particularly at the upper tiers...I want Diamond, Portfolio, and Collector's to be chock full of new titles (i.e. things that have never been in base packages before). Last time CE7 had the Eerdmans Reference Bundle...it would be great if a comparable bundle from Baker, IVP, Fortress Press, or some other publisher were included--more than one would be even better. As a previous CE purchaser (x2) here, new quality titles will be the key to my "adoption".

Since I have the majority of Logos's multi-volume commentaries at present (as most previous CE purchasers will), L8 CE will need to include something more exotic, like the Brill LXX commentary, New Interpreter's, Sacra Pagina, Navarre, Moffat's, Berit Olam, Brazos, Concordia, Baylor, Paideia, and/or maybe even Smyth & Helwys. Something oddball like the Church of God Digital Library, or the Ugaritic Baal commentary would be a nice surprise.

Another commentary that would make CE (or other bundles) attractive: Apollos OT Commentary.

While talking with a Faithlife employee, he asked if I had any other questions. I asked when is Logos 8 coming out? He said " We're working on it."

There are no books shipping between the 23rd and the 31st of October. Could it be that Logos 8 is coming out between then? I don't know, but I hope so.

From what has been said recently the new notes system is not ready. Why would you want Logos 8 released if this is case and the software is not ready? i don’t get all the hype about a software release.

The hype is because you never know what good tools Logos is going to come out with to take us deeper into the Word.

Good things come to those who wait, I don’t get why people want a premature release of software. It’s like kids who can’t wait till Christmas Day and ask their parents if they can unwrap one now.

Logos 4 released on Monday, 2 November 2009.

Logos 5 released on Thursday, 1 November 2012.

Logos 6 released on Tuesday, 28 October 2014.

Then Logos 7 surprised us by releasing on Wednesday 24 August 2016.

What do those dates all have in common? I was on holiday every time, usually without WiFi!

Okay, Mark, out with it - when are you next on vacation without WiFi?

We're actually going away on Monday for ten days — but we'll have WiFi this time!

So were those holidays booked in purposefully for when you had finished private beta testing of each version ?

If I’d have known Logos was going to be released I would have made sure I had decent internet access so I wouldn’t miss the fun! But it’s our wedding anniversary at the end of October and for some reason my wife thinks getting away from the internet is a good way to celebrate!

Doc, I don't care much for the software, I have the beta and am more than content with the new notes. My main desire for Logos 8 is access to new packages. I've put off buying anything in Logos the past several months, mainly in anticipation of Logos 8. Hopefully, I can resume spending soon  ;)

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are already used, so it has to be a Friday at the end of October or the beginning of November.

That makes it October 26 or November 2. With Mark being gone on Oct. 26, but back on Nov. 2, that makes Oct. 26 a 99.99% sure thing.
