Are You Running the Latest Version of Libronix?

I was surprised when I saw some stats on the number of people not running the latest version of Libronix (i.e., 3.0e). The numbers are even more surprising when you consider that updating Libronix to the latest version is entirely free and very easy to do.

Who’s Up to Date (and Who’s Not)?

Most of you are running the latest version, but a sizable group are still running a version that has been outdated for months or even years. Here are the numbers.

Current Version | 70.89%

  • 3.0e | 70.89%

Outdated Versions | 29.11%

  • 3.0d | 18.16%
  • 3.0c | 5.98%
  • 3.0b | 2.29%
  • 3.0 | 1.59%
  • 3.0a | .93%
  • Expired Betas | .16%

How to Find Out Which Version You Have

With Libronix opened, go to the “Help” menu and click “About Libronix DLS.”

You’ll find the version that you have installed right at the top towards the middle. If it doesn’t say 3.0e, it’s time to update.

How to Update

Updating to the latest version of Libronix is easy to do. There are (at least) five ways to do it:

  1. Update in Libronix: With Libronix opened, go to the “Tools” menu and click “Libronix Update.” Install all Required and Recommended items. If you have an internet connection, this is the easiest and best way to get updated.
  2. Update from Logos.com: You can also update to the latest version from our website: http://www.logos.com/support/downloads/ldls. Click the orange “Update” button and follow the instructions. (Or just run this script: http://www.logos.com/media/update/30eAutoUpdate.lbxupd.)
  3. Update from a Media Only DVD or CDs: If you’d rather not update via the internet, you can order a media only DVD (or CDs) to get the latest version of Libronix and of most of your book files.
  4. Upgrade Your Base Package: All of our base packages come with the latest version of Libronix, plus lots of new addins, tools, and resources! Visit http://www.logos.com/upgrade to see your upgrade options.
  5. Update from Any Recent Product: All CD/DVD products with an official release date after February 1, 2008 should include 3.0e on them. If you’ve purchased a new product recently or have one coming soon, you can update to 3.0e that way.

For a list of new features in 3.0e, see the previous post “Update to Libronix DLS 3.0e.”

    Phil, I’m still having problems viewing the Blog; if I go up to the top of this page and select Main then the page refreshes, and disappears. If I select Blog homepage from Logos home page on their website, the same error occurs. Plus, even now, when I am viewing the Blog, the entire right portion that had a calendar and lists of previous blogs is not there. FYI. Feedback. I never had problems before this…Thanks. I don’t believe the problem is my system since it is erratic on my desktop and my laptop. I run Windows XP Home with IE 6.

    I’m curious, is there anyone still on an earlier version of Libronix (such as 2.1), or even LLS 2.x? I’m wondering if there’s anyone that’s still using the old technology out there.

    Well I was using the old 2.0 until about a month ago I upgraded to 3.0c from a CD.
    My studies since then has been more indept and many scriptures I never used to pay much attention is is now bursting before my eyes with truth. The updated version is by far what all serious scholars need.
    Take for example Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
    This scripture has opened up a new door to the truth it contains and I have been exploring it for the past couple of weeks. I can tell you I have found that it has nothing to do with creation but time does not permit me to get into the details. Just know that the older version is very limited compared to the new.

    Thanks for sharing, Kevin.

    I’m sure there are people using earlier versions of Libronix or the old Logos Library System software. The stats that I looked at were based on people who were reading the Logos blog on the Logos home page in Libronix, which was new with LDLS 3.0. So my stats didn’t factor in anyone using something prior to 3.0. I’m sure they are out there. And you’re right, it would be interesting to know!

    Thanks for letting us know, Joan. We’re working on a new blog theme, and it should help us resolve these problems soon.
