BibleCS before I leave.
I'd like to hear some requests regarding peoples desires for BibleCS
during this timeframe.
New features currently:
Build against 1.5.8 engine (previous release is against 1.5.6)
Added indexed search support.
Added UTF-8 i18n support in UI.
Probably some bug fixes along the way.
a) release a beta tonight and a final in a week (if nothing major is
b) wait until after the summer and add more features then.

would have never know that they couldn't have viewed it with the
Looking forward to hearing what you think,
