Although MacSword is quite old and it would be more than time for  
something new I found that it will still take a good amount of time  
until something usable is there that can replace MacSword.
I'm the only one developing in this area ATM and was quite busy with  
my daily work the last months/weeks, so it hasn't gotten as far as I  
would have liked it.

I have put many hours of work into refactoring the Sword Objective-C  
Backend (coming from MacSword) and in a module installer that is now  
in Eloquent (btw: a new version has been released with some  
My thinking was that until something new is there I would branch  
MacSword and backport the backend and the module installer into  
MacSword. The UI would stay the same and it would be a Leopard only  
IIRC the majority of users that had questions about MacSword actually  
were using Leopard.

Altough the UI of MacSword is hardly usable in iPhone, having  
something Leopard compatible or Leopard only would ease the port to  
iPhone tremendously.

What are your thoughts about this?
