As far as I know, any frontends based on JSword (e.g. Alkitab, BibleDesktop,
FireBible, AndBible) will not be able to support other versifications.

As for the other applications, using Sword 1.6.x does not necessarily imply
that other versifications are well supported.  I know for both BPBible and
Xiphos that only the KJV versification is supported.  While books with other
versifications are able to be installed and opened, they will not go to the
correct references.
