The latest version of e-Sword — the best free Bible study software — is now available for download. Here are the update changes as posted at the website:

Scripture references in the Bible view having associated Study Notes will now display a wavy underline to denote such.

The Reference Library now has automatic Bookmarks for every article. The Graphics Viewer also has automatic Bookmarks for each module.

Most Commentary modules do not contain specific Chapter Notes, so for those that do not the Chapter Notes mode will now display all of the Verse Notes for that chapter. This is very convenient for viewing those commentaries that have very few or very brief notes.

The built-in Downloader now allows direct downloading of Premium modules without needing to run separate EXE files. A new Info… link displays additional information about the given module.

The VerseList feature will now accept numerous Scripture references at once for populating the list. For example, entering the following list is now valid:

    Mat. 10:42; 2 Sam 9:1, 7; Prov. 14:31; 19:17; Mark 9:41; John 19:26-27; 21:15-17; 1 Cor 16:21-22; 2 Cor 4:5; 5:14-15; 8:7-9; Gal. 5:6, 13, 22; 1 Thess 4:9-10; 1 Pe 1:22; 1 John 3:14-19; 4:7-12, 20-21; 5:1-2

A new Editor hotkey Ctrl+Shift+J will convert a Scripture reference into the actual Bible text using the currently selected Bible and formatting defined in the Copy Verses dialog.

I have used this program almost since it was first released, and it just keeps getting better all the time. I highly recommend it.
