The Go Bible project
Go Bible is no longer being actively developed. It's now well past its peak popularity due to the advent of smart phones.
In 2010, we released Go Bible 2.4.0 (together with Go Bible Creator).
In 2011, we released Go Bible Creator 2.4.1 (which still uses Go Bible Core 2.4.0) as a minor bug-fix.
Later in 2011, we released Go Bible Creator 2.4.3 and Go Bible 2.4.2 as maintenance bug-fixes.
Go Bible Forum
I am the main support person for the Go Bible Forum. This takes up a significant part of my time. As well as responding to user questions, I use the forum to post all sorts of useful information relating to Bible software. Please register & sign in to get the best from this forum. Several categories are accessible only when you are signed in.
I spend a proportion of my time researching Bible translations and copyright lobbying, with a view to getting more Biblical content available for distribution by CrossWire, whether as SWORD modules or Go Bible applications. Whenever it's appropriate, I usually note these approaches in Module Requests.
Several projects involve pre-processing Bible text from various (legacy) formats that are unsupported by Go Bible Creator or SWORD utilities. This is an ongoing activity that I am involved in, sometimes with help from other CrossWire volunteers.
In the course of my CrossWire & Go Bible activities, I have developed many bespoke file filters using TextPipe Standard edition. It's one of my favourite software resources.
During 2011, I began to learn how to make SWORD modules. Among my current projects is an aim to convert the translations hosted by Myanmar Bibles.
I am an administrator for this wiki. I regularly participate in the sword-devel mailing list (aka SWORD Developers' Collaboration Forum).
- I help module developers with the earlier task of text development and file conversion.
This site was primarily made for my own convenience, yet other CrossWire developers may find it useful:
