> Troy and I have been hard at work fixing the big bugs in the latest release of BibleCS. I have posted a new build that reflects our changes as of last night. Please use it, and test it and give us your feedback. We are not adding new features at the moment but just cleaning up the interface and making it work right, so please consider that in your feedback. And remember your feedback is very crucial to getting a release out that we can be proud of.

> Some things fixed:
> 1) The current verse autoscrolls to the correct location now (except in very extreme cases that the end user will probably never do) ;)
> 2) General books are delay loaded and do not load until the tab is clicked on. This reduces load times significantly when large books are installed on the machine.
> 3) The Search list of verses now allows for the up down key to navigate the verses in the list (somehow we never had this before)
> 4) When selecting a scheme, if the current settings match a scheme's settings that scheme name will show in the pulldown box as the current scheme
> 5) The back button works for book support too. (Sorta)
> 6) Refreshing the bible pane using the up down verse buttons was slow and revealed some rtf codes for a moment then refreshed and refreshed again making going from verse to verse very slow and annoying. This is now fixed too.
> What's left:
> 1) The run from CD ROM still needs fixing.
> 2) Hopefully make the scheme changes take place as soon as the user clicks ok.
> 3) Searching has some issues concerning UTF-8
> If I left anything out please let me know. We are moving forward rapidly to have a release hopefully early next week. My hopes are for Monday afternoon, Lord Willing.
