Hi All,

After quite a while, BPBible 0.4 is now available (you can download it at

This includes i18n support; currently it is translated into Vietnamese
(thanks Daniel). (As a side note, BPBible is now the only SWORD-based
project which supports dashes in bible book names; Vietnamese uses these, as
do other languages. You can see that here: http://bpbible.com/node/37)

The list of changes is here:

It includes:
Searching improvements (stemming, search in all book types, proximity in
verses or words, search on strong's numbers, morphology or passages)
Per-language and per-module font choice (special cased for greek and hebrew
so that greek and hebrew text will appear using a greek/hebrew font even in
the middle of english text)
Improved poetry layout
Delete/Unlock books
Book chooser in caption to easily change books used and see which books have
current reference.
And especially, etc.

It also now supports Mac to some degree (a very few things don't work as
expected, there is no installer - you have to build from source :(

I also changed the abbreviation for Psalms in the English locale from Pss ->
Psa. Could the BPBible english locales be merged back into SWORD sometime
(where appropriate)?

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.

Giôên 3:14 (ESV)
