I am happy to announce my first official beta version of SwordReader
since the rewrite I started early last year. This version as 95% of all
the functionality I expect to have in a 2.0 release. I plan to spend
however long it takes in the beta phase to have a solid first release. I
can use all the feedback and testers I can get in order to achieve this
goal, so I am cc'ing this email to the sword-devel list.
This current build has support for biblical texts, commentaries, and
Biblical texts have support for strongs/morph pop ups as well as
footnotes and cross-references.
Commentaries have support for scriptural reference pop-ups.
Dictionaries should have support for scriptural references, but as of
yet they do not.
All views can be accessed from the tabs at the bottom of the screen.
If you switch from the bible view to a commentary view while the text is
still loading, then try to load a scriptural reference from the
commentary, there is a good chance you will crash the application.
Smartphone support is not included in this build. Not sure when we will
get Smartphone support back.
Grab a copy at (includes KJV):
To have any fun you will want to grab a few bibles, commentaries,
dictionaries, and strong's greek and hebrew modules.
