I am curious about all the work done on databases such as Liddell-Scott-Jones and Josephus, reflected in the frequent updated files.

Is all of this done by BibleWorks alone, or is it partly received from developers of other programs? Are corrected databases shared amongst the various programs?

I'm answering this from memory, without the benefit of the e-mail I saw a number of months ago, but if I remember correctly BW is paying someone to go through the Josephus files, and that person is making sure that at least one of lexicons (usually L-S) has an entry linked to each word in Josephus. This sometimes involves additions to the Greek alias file.

Hope this helps.
