BibleWorks version 8 announced

Rubén Gómez got the word out first that BibleWorks version 8 is set to release in mid-late December. Just looking at some of the advance info, it appears that there is a lot to like that warrant this as a major upgrade. I really like the ability to de/select search results. The new Analysis pane tabs for Browse has long been desired, and the easier access to Context, Stats, and X-Refs (enhanced with new resources beside the TSK) is great too. I'll be very interested to see how the Phrase Matching/Related Verse tool works. It looks promising. They've also added some great new resources as part of the base package: Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics; Hebrew resourcs from Waltke & O'Connor and Jouon & Muraoka; the full Ante-Nicene, Nicene, and Post-Nicene Fathers; Bagster's Daily Light; morphologically tagged Greek OT Pseudepigrapha with a modern English translation; the TNIV, and more.

Pricing is the same as the previous version. Check here for screenshots and descriptions of the new features and resources in BibleWorks 8.
