rc1 binary for WIN32 is available on the alpha page:
Just replace your current sword.exe with this one to test.
I've changed the help menu choice to look for ./help/sword.chm instead
If get a chance, would you drop your latest help file in this directory
to see if it launches correctly.
Please report problems / comments about:
o Initial sizes and resizing of windows.
o Search Custom Range feature
o Overall stability
o Search speeds with custom ranges.
Some optimization was taken out, but I believe speeds
should still be comparable. I get about 8 secs on a
multiword search of the KJV for "God love world" on
VMWare 2.0 running Windows 98 on a Redhat 6.2 linux
Pentium 600 box. I get about 4 secs
on a New Testament search of the same. It should be
about 3 seconds, I would guess from the ratio of text
that should be skipped. We can do another optimization
pass once everything is working well.
Thanks for your patience!
