I would very much appreciate receiving these versions, if they are compatible with Bible works 6 (and, anyway, I guess I'll have to upgrade eventually). My e-mail is moreofchrist[at]gmail.com.
Thanks so much.
Just remember that since the laborer is worthy of his wages, you are not allowed to send any copyrighted files to any of the rest of us. If they purchase them from the publisher, they may make their own version for BW, but no one else is allowed to distribute them without publishers' permission. Render unto Caesar...
I would like these as well

Would it be possible for you to list the versions that are available (those in the public domain, and not under copyright?)
Online Bible has Isaac Leeser's 1853 translation of the Old Testament and is there anyone who has this as one as a BibleWorks Version?

Wikipedia). The footnotes to the 7th ed. look pretty interesting - pulling together translation notes based on Rashi and other Jewish commentators.
Unfortunately, I don't know of any electronic editions of this text. As of at least May 2008, Project Gutenberg did not not know of any either.
Below is a single-page scan from the print edition:
The commentary/ foot notes, by themselves, would make the Leeser Bible a nice addition!

Michael, it is great job you are doing on your blog! I just downloaded this and that - great stuff.
Just one thing: could you post a page saying how to install the different modules, GSE, vocab. cards etc.?
Thanks, Jim is the one delegated to write that kind of a post (mostly because I begged him to), so we are working on it; we're just not always as quick as we could be (we are both underpaid and overworked in our real lives, just see Jim's blog to find out why).
In general, modules just zip open to the \databases\ folder; in general, versions to \userdb\ folder and then you have to use the Version Database Compiler in BW; in general vocab cards unzip to \init\; GSE can technically be unzipped wherever you want, you just have to surf around to open them once you've opened the GSE. If you search the BW Help file, it usually tells you where these files are found, but I understand what you're saying, not everything is always crystal clear.
