  Hi all,

  I've just released BPBible 0.3, which adds many more features.
  It also has a new website, with forums and screenshots at http://bpbible.com

  New features (more details at http://bpbible.com/node/22): 
  Header bar - This is a feature unique to BPBible. It is a bar at the top of the bible window which has all the surrounding chapters on it for easy access. It also allows you to view an overview of each chapter. This is easier to try to see than to describe. There is a screenshot of it here: http://bpbible.com/node/17

  Book Installation
  - I've added book installation for downloaded books. InstallMgr support is not here yet...

  Search improvements:
  - Highlighting of search terms in results
  - New search operator (a, b) which does matches a or b.

  Unicode support
  - BPBible now should handle all unicode properly - searching may not be very smart, though (no stemming, accents removal, ...)

  Daily Devotional support
  Parallel display in the verse compare frame.
  Dictionary speed-ups - doesn't load the whole list at the start. 
  Filter modules by name

  BPBible also uses a new locale, which gives nicer references than the traditional ones
  I Samuel -> 1 Samuel
  II Samuel -> 2 Samuel
  III John -> 3 John
  Revelation of John -> Revelation
  It now interprets Jud as Judges, instead of Jude. This means references in the TSK to judges will now work properly.

  I decided not to include Sword built with ICU support in this release (although BPBible does support it), as it seems much too buggy and crashes far too much.

  A PortableApps version will probably land later today.

  God Bless,
  The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness,
  but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish,
  but that all should reach repentance.
  2 Peter 3:9 (ESV)
