First: congratulatiions to the BT team.  For my part, I have not used 
BibleCS since the Windows Xiphos.  Now I have BT as well, I shall make a 
point of using Xiphos and BibleTime equally.  Both are much better than 

I feel that as soon as BibleTime is properly released for Windows, 
BibleCS should be clearly flagged as 'deprecated' and it's profile 
greatly reduced on the web-site.  All three of the other frontends for 
Windows have their plusses and minuses, and users ought to be encouraged 
to try all three.  If all three set the SWORD_PATH environment variable 
(do they?) then they are ideally suited to run alongside one another 
until the new user has selected a favoured version.  The web-site ought 
to reflect something of the way in which each does the same thing in a 
different way, and all three ought to be tried!

God bless,
