I also hope the Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, Bezae, and Alexandrinus texts will not have accents, as the original MSS did not have them. I know you guys have an algorithm that you use to add accents, so if you are going to do this with these texts, please make an option to display these texts without accents as well.
8.0 has been such an enhancement to the way I work, I am grateful for the time spent ironing out all the wrinkles. I am especially glad that you will be able to get back to your long term projects:
I know I have appreciated having the 'quirky' versions of SCR and WHO. But the stuff "in the wings" sounds wonderful. We have all benefited tremendously from your precision work on BGM, and anxiously await the further fruits of your labor. Thanks for a peak at what is to come. Thank YouAfter that I will be switching most of my time to long-standing project to clean up some of our Greek New Testament databases and release some original transcriptions of NT manuscripts.
I want to give you a progress report on the update for the Early Church Fathers.
--All of the navigation repairs have been made. This includes a new table of contents, a new Resource Summary Window results display that includes the name of the author of that particular work and title of the work, and 'Previous | Next' links at the bottom of each page. The synchronization between the table of contents and the text page works.
--The Greek and Hebrew fonts are Unicode. The default is to display Greek in the new SBL Greek font, and the default Hebrew font is SBL Hebrew. The Unicode font can be changed through changing the default Unicode export font setting in BibleWorks. (This is a big deal, since now you can export from both BibleWorks and the ECF and have the same font in your document. And the export fonts are configurable.)
--The text of the ECF can be made larger or smaller by changing the Internet Explorer text size settings. You can also hold the Ctrl button and use your scroll wheel to enlarge or shrink the font size. Changing the font size works not only for the English text, but also for the Greek and Hebrew text.
--Currently I am repairing over 300 Scripture reference tagging errors. This will take a bit of time, as each of them have to be corrected by hand.
Once the Scripture reference tagging errors are corrected and the files processed, we will test the files and then post them for general updating.
Sorry for taking so long to make the update available, but we want to make sure it is correct when we post it.

Many thanks for the update on your progress Glenn!
I'm still really looking forward to seeing your hard work significantly increase my knowledge of the church fathers.
