I have just received a download which seems to be the updated NIV version - which is good news.

What surprises me is that it seems to be named identically to the 1984 version as per below:

Anyone else seeing the same thing?

I just received that too.  I guess that only notable distinction is the inverted colours in the book cover.

According to Biblica (which I think owns the international copyright to the NIV), the new version is simply called The New International Version.  Personally, I think that's a mistake and it's already a source of confusion in my church.

I haven't received the update. I tried "update now" but it didn't bring up anything. Maybe it takes awhile to reach the middle of Texas Stick out tongue

I guess the plan was to not to produce a new translation but update the existing one.  If 95% of the 1984 version is still there, then does it warrant a new name?  Not sure!

I think you're probably right Richard.  Giving it a new name would be problematic as well.

I'm going to start calling the 1984 version the Old International Version.  OIV... join me.

Those who have both versions will want to change the short title of one of them. OIV is clever. NIV84 works for me.

How does one do that Mark?

The nice thing is that Logos 4 lets us edit the title of books. Here's what I am doing:

Did you do the "free" upgrade of your base package?

Have you tried restarting Logos 4?

Thanks.  Got it.

 

(BTW - I also went for NIV84, not OIV.  Don't tell Chris.)

Yes I restarted Logos but am not sure to what "free" upgrade you are referring.

Or, in keeping with Today's New International Version, you could call it Yesterday's NIV. Smile

Todd Phillips:

How do I know if I'm actually running "KF" now? I did the free upgrade, downloaded the installer, and when I ran it, it said I was up-to-date. I can't tell from the "About" box if anything is different, still "4.2 SR-2". I have Platinum, and the web site no longer shows a free upgrade for me.

I've now got a 67MB update coming down, so maybe that's all the resource changes Phil referred to.

Thanks,

Donnie

Donnie, there's only one way to tell if you have the KF upgrade: check if you have the new titles that were included in your Library. This new NIV version, a new Book of Common Prayer Lectionary, the NET Bible First Edition Notes, and the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, Alternate Texts were included. Since this isn't a Logos 4 version upgrade but a resource collection upgrade you won't see anything in the About Logos box.

It's very practical to change also a long name for, let's say "The New International Version 1984" because otherwise when you want to open NIV from the command box it offers you 2 identical resources names and you have no chance to know which one is which.
