If I upgrade from BW8 to BW9, will I have both the NIV 1984 and the NIV 2011 versions? Also, will the NIV 2011 be added to BW8 eventually? Thank you.

Based on what I know, if you have a previous version of BibleWorks, you have already paid for the license of NIV 1984, so it will still be included. If you purchase BibleWorks 9 for the first time (and are not upgrading) you would *only* get NIV 2011. (this is not a BibleWorks policy, this is policy the publisher of the NIV has).

I doubt that BibleWorks will ever add NIV 2011 to BibleWorks 8, but this is just my own guess. Part of upgrading is having things in newer versions that aren't in older versions. That's how they pay bills.
