I'm looking forward very much to its release - the NET bible and notes is one of my most cherished bible resources.

Barry states it correctly: www.Bible.org has  just finished, after 10 
yrs and several millions of dollars, the First Edtion 
<http://www.bible.org/default.asp?scid=3> of the NETBible 
<http://www.bible.org/netbible/index.htm> see our NETBible page 
<http://www.bible.org/default.asp?scid=3>. We are now working on (with 
Barrys help)  two NETBible sword modules. to add to the various versions 
that can be downloaded for free 
<http://www.bible.org/page.asp?page_id=3086>or purshased at resonable 
costs off the www.bible.org site..
1- a free NETBible Sword module with the full NETBible text and limited 
notes approxiamently 3 per chapter plus i hope a link to any of the 
notes that are not included so even the free version has access from our 
web site all the notes
2-  a for pay version premium version that has the full NETBible text 
and all 60,000+ plus notes.  + some extras
In addition to the above we are working on puting the NETBible in a data 
base and making it and its notes searchable. If any of you would like to 
become alphas testers on that register for the www.bible.org/forum 
<http://www.netbibleinstitute.com/forum/index.php>  and join forum 
discussion 8e1 . We would love to have help in specifying the 
requirements that go into the next gerneration on-line bible and what 
you would like to see incorporated in our Sword development/
3- I have a call into Troy to see if we need to do anything formally 
with crosswire.org
