E-Sword modules are now HTML-based! This change will allow many new and unique resources to be created for e-Sword. Don't worry, e-Sword will still work with the older RTF-based modules as well. Most of the [official] resources have been updated to this new format, so you may want to download the updated versions of these modules, especially the non-English Bibles as they now contain the actual Unicode characters which makes for better search results.

The new module format has also introduced a new Lexicon module type.

There is a new Pericope feature which places section headings throughout the Bible. This feature can be turned on/off by selecting "Options > Display Pericope" from the e-Sword menu.

The Copy Verses feature has been expanded with an option to include the Lexicon definition for Strong's numbers in any Bible with them.

There is a new Morphology popup tooltip for any Bibles that include these grammatical parts of speech codes.

The new Reference Book modules now adapt to the user-defined font settings as the other module types do.


e-Sword 11.0 is now (or soon will be) available for download!

A few additional notes:

 

e-Sword is now capable of using the same module format as the Apple versions of e-Sword. Those module types are Commentary (.cmti), Dictionary (.dcti), Bible (.bbli), Reference Libary (.refi) etc.


Because the modules are now HTML based a lot more can happen with the presentation (i.e. poetry line breaks), and content (i.e. links). Module creators can use stylings in creative ways to produce new results in e-Sword.


Module creators can use the Morphology popup tooltip as long as the Bible as TVM codes as defined in Robinson's Morphological Analysis Codes (RMAC).

tvm works on one, not on other computer.  Won't load some books on both computers, haven't looked into it yet, may be modules of another sort got mixed in, download area some will not select and or not download.

I've noticed that if a module has partially downloaded and is stopped, that nothing else will happen until you restart that partially downloaded module (which is still in the lower part of the download screen). In that situation, you cannot select another module.

Noticed the modules that won't load are older ones, housekeeping due tomorrow ::-)

 

I do have a download that will not start in the lower part, will see what I can do in the morning.

The colours and layout of the RTF modules are still compatible except the tab position  (its makes a bigger space than the 10/9 version).

The letters looks a bit bigger in the HTM version because Verdana is now the default font.

There is a problem with the view of the search result (viewable RTF tags) but the HTM (Apple) based modules are good.

You can turn off "Display Bible  Pericope" (Topic titles) by Options

In HTM is there less trouble with the input and output of foreign script.

 

Many official modules are updated and the apple modules are now compatible

I recommend everybody to update to e-Sword 11. 

But copy first the C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword and the user-notes as backup. .

Just now downloaded and love it! Only two seldom-used  modules failed to install and I didn't have the good sense to write down the names of them at the time. Everything else looks as good -- No, better! -- than it did.

Just installed 11.0 - Looks good so far, but what happened to "Paste into Topic Notes"???  Now you have to highlight the verse in order for it to paste into Topic Notes.  I sure hope this can be corrected - it's not good to have this extra step when trying to take notes during a sermon, etc.

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

The new module format has also introduced a new Lexicon module type

 

 

Is there an example of this New module type
