I am currently working on a second frontend for BibleTime that uses QML. 
It is a work in progress and I have some basic features up and working. 
Bibles, Commentaries, and Books can be read in multiple windows. The 
windows can be tabbed or split views of the screen. The install process 
for bibles, etc. is working.

It requires Qt  5.1 and compiles on linux (ubuntu, fedora, etc.). I am 
looking into cross compiling onto android right now. Qt is not making 
this easy because they don't support cmake builds for android.

I have it in a private git repository right now, but expect to put it 
into the main BibleTime git repository soon. Help with this would be
