    Default Early Church Fathers update posted!

    After a lot of work and beta testing, the updated Early Church Fathers (ECF) chm module is being posted this morning. It can be downloaded by going to the main BibleWorks menu and selecting Help | BibleWorks on the Internet | Check for updates. This is a free update for all BibleWorks 8 users.

    Note: This is a very large download, about 90 megs in size.

    Here are some of the changes that are made in this update:
    --The name of the author and title appears in the Resource Summary Window.
    --Significant enhancements were made to the navigation. The Table of Contents is significantly enhanced.
    --The contents synchronizes with the Table of Contents.
    --There is an expanded Table of Contents added, so that you can browse the Table of Contents to find what you want.
    --A Highlights of the Early Church Fathers gives a list of popular writings in the ECF and lists some of the commentaries and homilies found in the ECF.
    --The Scripture references are significantly enhanced. Many more references are tagged than before.
    --The Greek and Hebrew fonts can be configured using the Unicode Export fonts setting in the Options Window.
    --'Previous' and 'Next' navigation is added at the bottom of each page, to enable you to read from one page to the next more easily.
    --Numerous typos were corrected.

    Hey Glenn, thanks for the update. Will the automatic update also pick it up, or must it be updated manually? Grateful for your reply. Irving

    Thank you very much. This is very, very helpful. I am currently reading quite a lot in the ECF (revising a commentary on Revelation). This is really a major update to BW8.

    Does anyone know or can take a guess regarding this question: how does the new BWW 8.0 "edition" of ECF compare with the one offered by www.logos.com (a company notorious for typos) and the online one at www.ccel.org/fathers.html (2nd Ed.)?

    We now have three ECFs to choose from, and it would be nice to know which of the three has the fewest errors (through scanning, OCR-ing, etc.). Just curious.

    I honestly don't know how one would even begin to assess this systematically. In which case, only random experience will count. I would hope that a version that costs extra beyond the normal program would be more accurate than one provided free, but past experience has shown that this is not necessarily so.
