[sword-devel] Strong not in ISO or Starter pack

	I'm so sorry about this.  The latest beta ISO has the latest KJV2003 
text.  We haven't released a windows version of our software for quite 
some time, and thus the starter pack hasn't been rebuilt.  When it 
rebuilds it grabs the latest versions of the texts it includes.  I 
hadn't even remembered that it would be a good thing to rebuild it 
because of new versions of the texts.  I'm am scheduled to be back next 
week from my summer studies.  We've had only 1 person report any major 
bugs for the last 1.5.8 prerelease at:


If people could test this week and confirm or deny the reliability, I'll 
try to get a final release out next week, when I arrive home-- provided 
no major reworks need to be done.

Little things like these negate alot of hard work on all of our parts.
Again, my apologies.
