Today several resources were updated, which is nothing unusual.

However I would like to find out more about what was updated.

Specifically, is there a change log available somewhere (even if it means a lot of work on my end) that details what has been updated to resources that are flagged as updated?

Today (9/6/2018) The Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary floated to the top of my sort by "Last Updated"--but WHY exactly?

I realize it is probably a few typos or minutia like that, but I'm an I.T. guy and these things are a curiosity to me.

Hi Ed

Sorry - but generally these details are not released to us users.

They used to be released to us users in the Logos blog - which stopped to be done at some point with no explanation.

If the blog posts could at least return for the more important updates, that'd be highly appreciated.

For example:

Resource abc - 17 corrected typos and 23 new cross references. Irrelevant for the change log.

Resource def - text changes supplied by publisher, ugly scans replaced with HD images, new book added to BHQ etc. Highly relevant for the change log.

I'd greatly appreciate this as well. Some of the resources I greatly delight in are updated, but I'm not sure what was updated. Could it be that line I had highlighted and started putting into practice? Does the change alter how the highlighted segment is to be understood, correcting an error? Knowing what corrections were made is gravely helpful when someone is putting into practice these things.

A change could affect your annotations if text is removed or altered  and it may be difficult/impossible to detect unless you know the specific change. Perhaps these major fixes could be documented. You could suggest this at https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-desktop-app

I note that some users highlight their submitted typos and check them when they receive an update e.g  search for {Highlight Typo}
