BPBible 0.5.3 was released on 11 January 2016
It included the following changes:

Bug fixes

Fixed a bug which meant that all reference tooltips were showing with a grey line underneath the contents.

Fixed a bug which meant that images didn't show in OSIS books.

Fixed a bug which meant that searches were not permitted if the word didn't occur in the current book (even if related words did).
For example, in the KJV "sloth" could not be used to search for "slothful".

Fixed a bug where highlighting the word searched for produced strange results if the verse had a passage tag.

Release 0.5.2

@jonmmorgan jonmmorgan released this Oct 10, 2015 · 15 commits to master since this release

BPBible 0.5.2 was released on 18 May 2013.
It included the following changes:

Improvements

The display of Strong's Number / morphology information for a book has been improved:

  1. It is possible to have the information for a particular word only show on hover or on click rather than showing all the time.
  2. It now highlights all the other places in the current window where the original language word currently being hovered over is used:

Strong's Number Highlighting

The presentation of text in the version comparison window has been improved.

It is now possible to turn off the orange reference bar at the top right of the Bible window (it will default to off). This was because it would shadow too much of the text.

The layout and typography of the Bible text has been improved.

Bug fixes

Fixed a bug where the error message would never go away if an invalid reference was entered in the quick selector (e.g. John 50:1).

Fixed a bug that prevented daily devotionals from opening correctly in the Chinese locale.

Fixed a bug where in some cases footnotes and headings would never appear.

Fixed a bug which meant that scriptural tooltips would not work when in column mode.

Made handling of the OSIS tag in some Bibles and other books handle more cases.

Removed the tooltip from the search textbox to prevent it from obscuring search text.

Fixed a bug which meant that NT-only books would continue to show "Loading..." if Genesis 1:1 was displayed.

Made line breaks in Robinson work correctly.

Fixed a bug which meant that comments on verses with discontinuous ranges could
cause an error.

Fixed a bug which meant that books in a Right to Left script were being shown Left to Right in the parallel table in the version comparison window.

Fixed a bug which caused crashes when changing fonts or display options after changing the current language.

Fixed a bug preventing the search index from being built with the latest version of the KJV.

Fixed a bug which meant that books containing text in a non-English language would not display anything in column view.

Release 0.5

@jonmmorgan jonmmorgan released this Oct 10, 2015 · 69 commits to master since this release

After many betas, BPBible 0.5 was released on 20 December 2011.
This is a major release using the new rendering engine.
This makes it impossible to document every single changes. The major changes are listed below.

Languages

BPBible can now be used in Nepali.

BPBible now has better support for displaying Right to Left languages (such as Hebrew).

BPBible now has better support for copying from complex scripts (such as Thai).

BPBible now does not fail if searching using the Portuguese locale.

Improvements

BPBible has switched to using a new rendering engine. As a result, many things have been improved or changed. Some of the most noticeable improvements are:

  1. Continuous scrolling: Instead of being restricted to viewing a single chapter at a time, the contents of the book can continue to scroll until the end is reached.
  2. Column view: View a chapter in columns that fit the height of your screen rather than in a single column.
  3. Blocked Strong's Headwords: Display the Strong's headwords underneath the translation rather than next to it.
  4. Colour Code by Speakers: Underline the words said by different speakers in different colours.
  5. Rich text copying: It is now possible to copy formatted text using the Copy Verses dialog. This allows features of the text such as italics and red letter text to be copied.
  6. Separating Daily Devotionals and Dictionaries: Previously daily devotionals and reading planners used to be in the same window as dictionaries. This made it impossible to have a daily devotional at the same time as a dictionary. They are now separate windows.

Changed the dictionary topic titles to try and display the topic name in title case rather than all uppercase.

Added an option to Copy Verses to allow it to copy formatted (which will copy italics and other important properties of the text). Also improved the speed of Copy Verses and Quick Copy for plain text copy.

Changed the settings of where to find books to be stored in the user's home directory rather than in the application directory.

Changed scripture tooltips to display verses in one block rather than one block per verse if the tooltip contains adjacent verses (e.g. 1 Kings 5:3, 4).

Added support for showing in the Book Information window the URL to visit to obtain an unlock key for a book (if it is present in the book's conf file).

Bug fixes

Fixed a bug which prevented topic management from working for users with accented characters in their user name.

Fixed bugs which led to the "BPBible has detected an error" being frequently displayed when the program was closed.
