Scripturizer 1.7 Stable Release: a New Home and a New Name June 21, 2007Posted by Laurence O’Donnell in Development, Releases.
A New Home for Scripturizer
A few months ago WordPress opened its new plugins directory in an effort to centralize and standardize plugin development. It has taken me a bit to catch up with the Joneses, but today I transfered the newly updated Scripturizer 1.7, stable version, to this new directory.
A New Name: “The Holy Scripturizer”
Due to conflicts with other similarly-named plugins, I edited Scripturizer’s name to “The Holy Scripturizer.” I like this name better than the original, for it highlights a seldom-heard aspect about God’s Word–it is holy.
A New Release: 1.7 Stable
Along with a new home comes a newly updated code base. This latest release (download 1.7 stable via Scripturizer’s new home) includes the following important updates:
- Support for the Septuagint (LXX), New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), and New English Bible (NET) versions.
- Compliance with the new Bibleref standards for semantic Bible markup. (Learn more about Bibleref.)
While users of the 1.7 beta version are not at risk, all users of all previous versions are encouraged to update to 1.7 stable.
What are the implications of these updates?
All further development and support of the Holy Scripturizer plugin will be facilitated through the new plugins directory. So, please direct all support requests through the proper channels at the new home.
The German version of Scripturizer will also be migrated to the new plugin directory.
