Does anyone know if this resource is up-to-date with the latest version of the database?

https://www.logos.com/product/2209/the-parallel-aligned-hebrew-aramaic-and-greek-texts-of-jewish-scripture

The publication date on the resource is 2003, but the support info in the resource information says 2013-11-13T15:44:55Z.

To add to your date list, Logos shows the pub-date is 2004 in the library (column).  But only one of the Tov volumes was 2013 updated; else a fifth date (2009).

I was pleasantly surprised that the Info description bragged about how in Libronix, you can re-order the interlinear lines.  Mmmm.  Obviously Libby didn't design Logos4/5. Or update the description.

I thought David Knoll's comment remains interesting (forgot how to copy the link only):

I was just looking for something else (what update was downloading ) and thought I would add some remarks.

1) Tov-Polak parallel LXX-BHS. This is one of the most efficient tools you can find for textual criticism of the old testament. The Logos version is outdated and it is very poorly implemented. I don't think it would be proper here to count the advantages of the implementation of this resource in both BW and Accordance. Suffice it to say that in Logos you can only scroll through an older version of the database but no real search capabilities are available to you.

------

And lastly for anyone curious about the Tov parallel, there's a couple of PDFs you can find in Google that are interesting.  A-Company has a PDF manual which is fairly good.

Try: Septuaginta: With morphology. (1979). (electronic ed.). Stuttgart: Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft.

This works with McDaniel, C. (2009). The Greek-Hebrew Reverse Interlinear Septuagint. Lexham Press.

You can search both on Greek and Hebrew lemma's. Using the analyse view you can easy find out things like which Hebrew lemma is translated by which Greek lemma, and stuff like that.

However, it would be great to have Tov's work updated and searchable in just the same way. The current form of Tov's work is outdated and unusable. I prefer Tov's work over the Lexham interlinear because it has more academic credibility.

Sorry to dig out this old thread but I am very interested in having an update on this book. Do you think that Logos is also interested?
