We are pleased to announce the release of Bible SuperSearch 4.0. This release finalizes the complete rebuild of the software that has been in progress since late 2015. With this release, we are releasing the source code to our API. Bible SuperSearch was originally built to be ran completely independent of our website. Now that this rebuild has been finished, we can offer this option once again. Our client software allows anyone to install the Bible search engine easily on their website; adding the API allows for complete independence from our website.
We are pleased to announce the first 4.0.0 pre-release of our API code. The API, when combined with a user interface, will allow running Bible SuperSearch completely independent of our website. Please report any bugs to us immediately. The final release is on schedule for May 4, 2019. https://sourceforge.net/projects/biblesuper/files/API/ NOTE: This code is not production ready and should not be used in a production environment.

This release adds several interfaces to the new client. Some have been migrated from the legacy software, but we have also added a set of minimal interfaces. This release also fixes several bugs and formatting issues.
A few users have expressed concern about our new software, especially since it relies on our API. We believe our new client software is very easy to install. It’s also able to be used on websites not equipped with PHP and / or MySQL. So it is more usable than our legacy software. That being said, the client software runs off of our API located at api.biblesupersearch.com. Unlike our legacy software, it does not run completely on your website. We will soon release the code for our API, bundled with our client. This bundle will allow running the current version of the software completely on your site. Please see our downloads page. For those who have concerns about using our client software, you may continue to use the legacy software as we’re still supporting it with bug fixes for now. (However, it is not supported in PHP 7 or above.) We are also in the process of adding several more skins to the software.
The API (v 2.5) is now ready to use. See it’s full documentation at https://api.biblesupersearch.com/ This API contains all of the functionality of the current (2.x) release. A future 4.0 release of the API will add much more functionality
