Recent updates

On 1 January 2007, version 7.8.5 of e-Sword was released. This consisted mainly of bug fixes. The big update was 7.8.2. This can be found at http://www.e-Sword.net.

On 8 January 2007, the following documentation was released:
  • The e-Sword Utility Program FAQ: What is e-Sword? Version
  • The e-Sword Utility Program FAQ: Where to obtain e-Sword support Version
They both are in PDF format, and can be found at http://www.esnips.com/web/eSwordFAQs/.

Back on 24 December 2006, esword-rss-feeds.opml was released. This can be found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eSword/files/. You have to be subscribed to the eSword list to access that file. It contains RSS feeds for most of the websites that have e-Sword modules for download.

An updated version of Text2DAO was released on 3 January. Filename is SMM's_Text2DAO_2007-01-02_1640.zip. this is a very useful tool for creating e-Sword module. However, it was created as a toy for Geeks, and non-geeks might like the interface.
Always use this tool on a backup copy of the resource you are working on. Make lots of backup, adding the time, and date to the filename of the backup. It allows one to do things that are, at best, questionable dangerous. If what you do breaks a database table, it will crash, without issuing a warning. This file can be found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eSword/files/, and again, you have to be a member of that list to download it. One other caveat. If you haven't installed Text2DAO before, then download the Comprehensive Setup Install File from http://www.houseofmyrrh.com/SMM's_Text2DAO_Full.zip, after reading the instructions at http://www.houseofmyrrh.com/text2dao.htm
