TheWord Version 4 Is Finally Released!!
(And I’m Finally Going to Write About It)
Well, it was a looong time coming, but Costas has finally released his next public
version of TW - version 4.0 (technically, 184.108.40.2062). It had been 20 months since
his last public release version. Trust me when I say this: the long wait has been
well worth it!
At first glance, it may appear that there are not many significant upgrades. But
“under the hood” is where many of the advancements have been made. Wow! Is this super
Over the next two or three weeks, I’m going to write up individual blogs about each
of the major updates to TW4. It includes these enhancements/additions:
- Daily Bible Reading Plans - that actually work with the software!
- Daily Devotional Reading Organization - again, they work with the software!
- A very nice module installation feature. Everyone who downloads from my site will
need to read and understand this one!
- A greatly enhanced way of building module sets. If you have more than 100 modules,
you’ll want to read this! Imagine having a real world library of 1,000 books; and
being able to arrange them 1,000 different ways at the same time. Yeah....
- A “beta” implementation of a new type of module. It is called a “hybrid” module.
It has the ability to link to verses just like a commentary; but it also has the
capability to have a hierarchial organization of topical material at the same time.
It’s genuinely the best of both worlds. (And it’s stable enough to be at the “beta”
All in all, TW4 has seventy (7-0!!) new features, along with 110 updates. This is
quite an upgrade, indeed! (To see the entire list of upgrades, click here.)
The best part is that this update will be seamless for those who have already been
using the software. Once you upgrade, all of your personal materials and settings
will be maintained; all of your personal modules will be the same; and all of the
modules you’ve downloaded will work - “guaranteed, or your money back!”
