Dear Friends and Supporters,

We've just been informed of license restrictions that force us to amend yesterday's email announcement.

If you obtain the BW9 Mac Public Preview through our webstore by 10/15/2012, there will be no fee for it. After that date users will have to pay a nominal fee of $6 to obtain the BW9 Mac Public Preview. This is due to license restrictions that we did not understand before the initial announcement was made. We will absorb the nominal fee for users who obtain the Mac Public Preview by 10/15/2012. This does not affect Mac users running BibleWorks outside of the Mac Public Preview.

To implement all of this, we'll have to offer the Mac Public Preview through our webstore. It should appear there by early next week. If you already downloaded the Mac Public Preview check the Mac info page early next week for updated instructions on how to get your free activation code for the Mac Public Preview.

We're sorry for this inconvenience. It's important to us that we keep our word (Psa. 15:4). We're very excited about this opportunity to provide our Mac users with another way to run BibleWorks at a low cost.

If you purchased any BibleWorks product as a result of yesterday's announcement and this arrangement is not acceptable to you, please contact us, and we will refund your order.

Thanks for bearing with us and for your support for our work. May we all be used to fill the earth with the knowledge of the Lord.


The BibleWorks Team


P.S. Below is yesterday's announcement with amended wording.

New options for running BibleWorks 9 on a Mac or on a tablet!

BibleWorks 9 now shipping!

Run on a Mac

BibleWorks runs well on virtual machines (VMs) such as Parallels, VMware Fusion, and VirtualBox. Now you can also run natively on Macs with our Mac Public Preview version (for those who care about technical details, it runs on customized Wine libraries). While this is a work in progress, it runs what most of our users use (we estimate 95%).

Best of all, if you have the latest BW9 DVDs (rev. 3) you only need our Mac Public Preview installer (available for a nominal fee of $6). No other extra software and no Windows license are needed. (If you don't have rev. 3 DVDs you can order them for $25.)

Run on a Windows 8 Tablet

BibleWorks runs on Windows desktops, laptops, and even tablets! We've added support to BibleWorks 9 so that you can touch, type, and swipe on Windows 8 tablet PCs. Take a look at BibleWorks 9 running on a tablet PC here:
