Very familiar with it and am currently in the process of writing 
wxSword... www.wxsword.com. (nothing out there yet, but I've got the 
I have been wanting to do this for years but was never able due to time 
However, currently I work 4 days of 10 hours and have Friday's off, part 
of which I have dedicated to develop wxSword. I have done some 
development the last 3-4 Friday's and have been able to get the 
following done:
1    An explorer-alike (tree on the left with book (Bibles), 
Bible-Books, Chapters, verses and verse text on the right
2    Multi Bible view a way to view 1 or more Bibles in parallel (next 
to each other).

I use:
-    sword library (of course!)
-    wxWidgets www.wxwidgets.org (2.8.x)
-    My own wrapper around wxWidgets to make life easier.
-    My own other generic code to make life easier.

At this moment I am *not* looking for other developers than can join me 
in this effort. However, I am *very* willing to make snapshots of 
wxSword.exe's ongoing development available via www.wxsword.com.

At this moment I am looking for people interested in using the product 
and people that like to share their idea's with regards to how things 
should work and what they like, do not like, etc, etc, etc. Basically 
people that would like to help me "functionally design" wxSword.

Because of the sword/wxWidgets base I should be able to build the code 
on platforms supported by sword and wxWidgets. I generally build in UNIX 
and Windows.

God bless!
