[sword-devel] BibleCS Beta

I have good and bad news.  I've been accepted to attend a summer class 
overseas, during June 16-Aug 5.  I am not planning any more work on 
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.

We can:
	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.

The down side of releasing now is that it's been a long time between 
BibleCS releases, and it might be a discouragement to people when they 
only see the above changes after such a long time.  They usually won't 
notice the changes from the engine update, except that it will allow 
them to view newer modules, like the upcoming NASB-- but they probably 
would have never know that they couldn't have viewed it with the 
previous release.

	Looking forward to hearing what you think,
