If it is at all relevant to your decision(s), work on BibleStudy has
just resumed. I was recently contacted by someone interested in
providing French and Arabic run-from-cd translations, and as a result
I have resumed work on BibleStudy and am in the process of making it

I am unaware of any problems related to compiling against sword. The
problem that you likely saw was releated to a missing dependency on
David Trotz's Reading Planner library, which is being resolved now.

I know it seems that no work has taken place on BibleStudy in a full
year, David had actually picked up where I dropped off and
incorportated his excellent ReadingPlanner library in a way that is
possible to synchronize your reading plans from BibleStudy <-> PalmOS

As soon as I get some of these issues resolved, and the i18n work
underway, I plan to release a new version, then try to focus on making
it a more polished app.

God Bless,
