Here's the post (http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/?p=855) on Whitaker's Words.

In short, it is a nice addition. It saves time and clumsiness of multiple windows, and extra clicks, but it's still not a full-blown morphology version like BGM or WTM, etc. I don't think it would ever be the only reason to upgrade, but if you do a lot of work with the Vulgate and are a bit rusty in your Latin, I do think it would be a marked improvement from what you were doing in BW8.

Unless there are secret projects being worked on that I don't know about, I don't think Latin morphological versions are a high priority in development for BibleWorks (as you can see they have some other projects they're working on), but this was at least a nice bone to throw out for us. Obviously these things can change, but I get the feeling there just isn't enough widespread demand for them and I understand that. I'd like more Latin in BibleWorks, but there are many other things I want more than more Latin :) And yes I realize I can't have everything I want, so I'm okay with this.
