Welcome - and blessings to you and yours.

This is just my opinion - others may disagree.  For me, the most urgent 
need is for handling a flexible canon.  Bibles we already have such as 
the Septuagint in Greek and English, and the Vulgate are incomplete 
because the Sword API handles only the KJV canon (see canon.h).  There 
have been lots of messages on this list asking for this issue to be 

Way back, Chris Little noted the number of canonic variations that would 
be required to handle all versions properly: there were more than I had 
realised - and I knew of a number!  The main problem seems to be 
synchronising versions with a different chapter/verse structure - eg 
different numbers for some of the psalms in different versions ....   I 
don't think anyone is actively working on this, but there has been a lot 
of thought ....  if you really want to get in at the deep end, share 
thoughts on this aspect. 

Ubuntu is fantastic!

God bless,
