There is a new test windows binary available at:
you will also need a locale pack from the source. I've zipped up the
latest here, for those that don't have the source checked out:
put the new exe in your sword directory, replacing the old one, and
unzip the locale pack in your sword dir also (probably c:\Program
Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\).
You'll find a rough implementation of some new features. The
preferences dialog is a mess, but has some of the new stuff available
from there. You'll have to restart the program after changing options
for many of them to take effect.
Also, for many of the new features to work, you'll have either download
the latest version of a few key modules, or merely add appropriate lines
in the modules' .conf files, probably located in:
c:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\mods.d
Here's a grep from the website's module repository:
For example, thayer.conf might look something like this when you are
Description=Thayer's Greek Lexicon
About=\qc Thayer's Greek Lexicon \par\par \pard \
This is a lexicon of Greek words keyed off of Strong's numbers.
I'm looking mostly for comments about the features and suggestions. I
haven't spent much time on trying to make it stable. You're still
welcome to report bugs, though, also.
For the really ambitious, this is built on the latest 1.5.1a library, so
there is basic speed search support built in. You'll need to prime the
module for speed search manually though. This entails downloading the
placing it in your sword directory,
opening a dos prompt,
CDing to your sword directory (can be tricky with spaces in the path
cd "Program Files"
cd "The SWORD Project"
then running the mkfastmod program on the module you want to prime.
Thanks again for your willingness to help! Keep the suggestions and
