False negative in Bible tester resolved

An issue preventing the Bible tester from working has been resolved in the latest release.  This release is only available as a patch. This issue resulted in the tester giving a false negative for every test, even when the Bibles are installed properly and the Bible search is working. Download Patch 2.0.71 if this is an issue for you. (If the Bible search is working properly, you don’t need to apply this patch.)

Bible SuperSearch 2.0.70 Released Improved proximity search.

A new version of Bible SuperSearch has been released. 2.0.70 includes a completely new, much faster proximity search algorithm. Also added as an extension of the proximity search is the capability to search for all words, within a chapter. (All words must be in the same chapter, but not necessarily in the same verse.) Also in this release are many bug fixes, especially in the passage lookup syntax, and a revised user guide.

More Bibles Released! With Bible SuperSearch 1.6.30

Bible SuperSearch 1.6.30 has been released. Many more Bible modules available. While this is only a minor update to the program itself, it includes support for the new Bible modules. Bible modules include: Authorized King James Version Reina Valera 1602 (Spanish) Reina Valera 1909 (Spanish) Sagradas Escrituras 1569 (Spanish) Luther 1545 (German) Martin 1744 (French) La Bible de l’Épée (2005) (French) Diodati 1649 (Italian) Synodal 1876 (Russian) Cornilescu (Romanian) Smith Van Dyke (Arabic) Karoli (Hungarian) Staten Vertaling (Dutch) Most of these do NOT require upgrading to this release, except for the Arabic and Russian translations. However, it is highly recommended, since even the four old modules have been improved, and the KJV module was completely recompiled from a better source. Other changes to the software include: New Module creator tool that allows you to easily make modules from your own SQL database Bibles Bible list organizer tool lets you easily determine the order Bible versions appear in the selection menu. Several other tweaks on the manager and bug fixes.
