New Polyglot Bible in development

I don't think I'm disclosing any top secret project here. Tigran Aivazian of Bibles.org.uk described (on a BibleWorks Forum post) the production of a new polyglot Bible and provided this link to a PDF draft . Here is what Genesis 1.1 looks like:
Note that this polyglot includes the following texts along with numerous textual variants of:

  • Ginsburg/ben-Chayim Hebrew Massoretic text
  • Samaritan Pentateuch
  • Hebrew mss from Qumran
  • Aramaic targum Onkelos
  • Syriac Peshitta
  • Arabic of Saadia Gaon
  • Jerome's Latin Vulgate (and Clementine)
  • Greek LXX with Aquila, Symmachus, and Theodotion referenced in the apparatus
  • Armenian of Mesrob/Sahak
  • Bohairic version
  • Slavonic version of Cyrill and Methodius
Now, won't that be helpful!
