e-Sword X is e-Sword 10?  If so, not sure I follow as 10.4 was released in July 2014. You mean e-Sword 11?

I saw it in a window as the "tip of the day" in the e-Sword program.

e-Sword X is about the coming e-Sword version for Mac OS X.

That must be what my friend was talking about.....he said he saw it today. He wandered if I knew anything about it....I hadn't heard or seen anything about it. But he did indicate it was in a small pop-up window. ......THANKS !!

Ahh, I see it now! e-Sword running natively on the Mac would be amazing and welcome relief from the tedious and quirky workarounds...

Blessings,

 

It was just the popup you get sometimes when you run eSword, and you are not using it for a time and Rick has something to say, and your firewall is not blocking communications. So I don't have a url to give, hence the ss.

The headline in the screen shot says "...for the Mac" but the second sentence states, "e-Sword X is a complete re-design of e-Sword for the *PC*." (Emphasis mine.) Maybe "PC" has now evolved to include Macs, but I seem to recall that it was a moniker only for what were once called "IBM compatibles" or "personal computers." In other words, you either bought a PC or a Mac, hence my question: Will the new e-Sword X also be released for PCs or is it [just] for Macs?

While the wording is ambiguous, from the context I don't think this is a re-write of the PC version.

 

Rather than just porting (or converting) e-Sword from the PC to the Mac in a feature-for-feature conversion, I think this means they used the PC version as a starting point and built on their years of experience to make the Mac version more feature rich and "better". The rest of the sentence after "PC", I think, clarifies it. I  believe he uses "PC" here as a comparison to the Mac version (Mac version will be "better"), instead of saying he has re-created e-Sword for the PC.

 

My guess is the Macintosh will use the iPad/iPhone version of the resources instead of the PC version's.  Hopefully, there won't be yet another series of  parallel module types in the e-Sword product family.

 

The price is also unknown. Since the Mac has an App Store (like the iPhone/iPad), there's the possibility (and probability) of X not being free.
