New Features

   Added narrated resource icon next to resources that have associated audio resources.

  Added German and Dutch Bible data types.
  Search fields are now localized for Spanish, Italian, and a good amount for German.

New Tab Panel
   Improved the panel when opening a new tab. Options will be suggested based on the panel you open the new tab with:

  • All new tabs will provide a prioritized list of your frequently used resources/documents.
  • Opening with a resource will show a list of parallel resources or those with similar references.
  • Opening with a non-resource will provide shortcuts to Documents/Tools/Guides, or similar elements (History, Cited By, etc.)
  • Resources or other options can be clicked to open in the new tab, or dragged into another panel to open there and preserve the new tab list.

Passage Guide
   ‘Save as Passage List’ has been implemented for the Interesting Words and Music sections of the Passage Guide.

Passage Lists
   Added ‘Save as Passage List’ support to Example Uses, Grammatical Relationships, and Preposition Use section of the Bible Word Study guide.

   Implemented a font slider in the Print/Export panel on Mac. (See Known Issues for Mac)

Resource Panel
   Floated panels should return to their original location when docked:

  • The simple case of floating one panel in a tab, then redocking it should work as expected.
  • Panels floated from a floating window and redocked should go back to the window they were floated from.
  • If a panel is floated and the tile it originated from no longer exists, it will use the existing clustering algorithm.
