A new version of Logos Bible Software for Windows began shipping yesterday. Version 4.1 is the fifth major update since we launched Logos 4 eleven months ago. Like all previous updates, version 4.1 is a free download for all Logos 4 Windows users.
How Do You Get It?
If you have automatic updating enabled (screenshot), which is the default setting, Logos 4 should notify you that updates are ready to be installed. When you see the balloon tooltip window, right-click on the Logos icon in your system tray and choose to “Install update” (screenshot). If Logos 4 hasn’t downloaded the update by the end of the day, type Update Now into the Command Bar (screenshot). This will force Logos 4 to check for any available updates (screenshot) and begin downloading them.
What’s New in Logos 4.1?
Version 4.1 brings a number of important new features—many of which are in direct response to your requests. Here are the major ones:
- Advanced printing and exporting
- Sentence diagramming
- Smart Tags
There were also some nice little improvements made to Bible Word Study, graphing Bible search results, keyboard shortcuts, the panel menu, the Passage Guide, Passage Lists, program settings, reading plans, the resource panel, the search panel, and shortcuts. Check out “What’s New in Logos 4.1” to see a complete list of the changes.
Time to Upgrade to Logos 4?
Are you still running Logos 3 (or the old Logos Library System!)? If so, now would be a great time to upgrade to Logos 4. Not only has Logos 4 improved significantly over the last eleven months, but we’re currently having special limited-time discounts of up to 20% off base packages and base package upgrades. And we’re far from done improving Logos 4. I just installed the beta release of version 4.2. To see some of what’s coming, check out the list of additional features we plan to add.
What about Logos 4 for Mac?
In case you missed the news, Logos 4 Mac is now shipping. If you’ve been waiting until it was out of beta testing, now’s your chance to buy a base package or upgrade your current base package at a nice discount. And don’t worry, Mac Users, the Mac team hasn’t slowed down at all. They’re already working on 4.1 and hope to be caught up to the Windows team in the very near future.
