After too many months of fiddling, i've finally released the new version of the SemanticBible website. This is built using a newer version (0.6) of Apache Forrest, which i still like despite some aggravations (but it is still pre-1.0, after all). Consequently, it has a pretty different look than the previous version (described here about a year ago). I'm trying hard to stop obsessing over cosmetic details and focus on content instead. And if i ever figure out how to use 20% of Forrest's power, i'll be a wizard. But the biggest improvement in this version is a Jetty web server, which means you can run a local version of your site, change a file, and see the changes immediately reflected. That's a pretty powerful development tool, and one i probably used too much.

The most important content changes are in the Composite Gospel Index, which now has an RDF implementation and a series of presentations of each individual pericope: i'll do a separate post on that.

I encourage folks who use Bible software to take this survey. From the crosswire.org front page:

Bible Software vendors from around the globe are jointly sponsoring a cooperative User Survey to glean from Bible Software Users worldwide their needs, requests, and dreams.

Comments on the survey at Bible Software Review Weblog.
