It seems that things have been a bit slow lately.  Do you suppose that they are about to drop a bomb shell on us?

Maybe some much deserved time off.

I think they've been tryin' to cook is sales, so they can finish the year firmly in the black. Seriously, the years they don't have a new software release which usually generates a lot of revenue through new purchasers and upgrades, they have to still pay their staff to work on the next release. You can be sure that is in the works.

This year we've not seen the list of new publishers come on line like the previous 2-3 years. There has been lots of development along the lines of a few user groups: Catholic and SDA seem to have many new offerings this year.  From those user's perspectives it might have been a banner year.

That's what I've been thinking as well. I hope the 500 book special has been able to give them a good end of the year.

That's certainly part of it. A lot of people take time off during the holidays. I personally have been out of the office for a while getting married. Smile

The development team is certainly still hard at work though. My team (Mobile) just wrapped up the new v4 release of the Android and iOS apps, and we've been preparing the new Noet app for release before the end of the year. I wouldn't expect a bomb shell in the immediate future, but I do look forward to getting back to work in January and continuing to develop new features and fixes!

You must have missed the post where Bob expressed his disappointment that they will miss his 5% profit target, and are heading for over 10%.Smile

Tastes differ. First shippings from Cambridge University Press and St Vladimir's. The long awaited return of Oxford University Press and Liturgical Press. Several important new Catholic publishers. Vastly expanded offerings from SPCK, Ignatius and the Libreria Editrice Vaticana. I'm essentially happy. Still waiting for Paulist and some Orthodox presses. Disappointed we haven't seen a single new title from JPS in the whole year.

Catholic University and Liturgical Press may be Catholic, but it wasn't just Catholics that brought Sacra Pagina, the Aramaic Bible and the Fathers of the Church under development.Wink

About two months ago, I believe.

Gratz, Drew!

Let's get some more Catholic titles. Liturgical Press has so many good titles. Same with Ignatius. Need to get the New Jerome Biblical Commentary and Anchor Yale Biblical Commentary: Matthew.

If it's big enough (100 megatons or so).

I had not realized Matthew was missing.... I know when Accordance released the NT earlier this year it was complete with it. With a 1995 publication date it is most odd it wasn't with the initial release.

PS: I too would love to see the NJBC, but it seems to be a book that has constantly remained out of reach :(

It is in MY Logos library  although I can;t locate it in the Logos websiite.....

Jesus here unequivocally equates his ministry with God’s visit to claim his own; Israel, God’s bride, has been badly served by some of her custodians. It is obvious that this parable serves equally well, (in view of the immediate context) no doubt intended by Jesus, as a warning and exhortation to the custodians of the new Messianic Community.

Yes, they lost the rights to it. But, a new Matthew for AYBC is in the works! By John P. Meier, famous author of A Marginal Jew: rethinking the Historical Jesus series for AYBC. When it is completed, let's get this new one. I still would like the old one back as well.
