Additional Comments

Does not require DLLs, so Gold rating is not appropriate. It works far better than Silver would imply. Except for the search function and the one crash, I would consider it Platinum. I don't have access to Gatesware, so I can't see whether application behavior differs. The drop-down menus for title, book, chapter and verse seemed finnicky. I don't know how this behaves on Gatesware.

HowTo / Notes

AppDB page maintenance has been suspended.

Due to the considerable age of this application and the much newer web-based methods to access scriptural content making it highly questionable whether this page would be useful to anyone, maintenance of this AppDB page has been suspended.  A comment was posted in August, 2013 asking whether anyone still uses this application, and there has been no response.

If anyone does use this application, please post a comment.  If anyone does use this application, I'll probably resume regular testing with new versions of Wine.  (If someone else wants to be a maintainer of this page, I won't be opposed.)
