Occasionally in blog or forum posts, mention is made of previous versions of Accordance. I'm left wondering: What did Accordance look like in previous versions? Information on the features of previous versions is easily available, at least beginning with version 4 (http://www.accordanc...es/new_in_8.php). But I'd really like to see screenshots of the early versions of Accordance.

Does anyone have screenshots of early Accordance versions?

I do not have access to the oldest files right now, but here are screenshots of Accordance 2, 3, and 5. As you can see, there was only incremental change until the major reorganization of the interface with version 6.

In these screenshots, the Accordance interface looks rather clunky—if compared to the current incarnation. Compared to the programs I was running on my PowerBook 540c when version 2 was released in 1996, Accordance version 2 looks intuitive, sophisticated, and powerful—keeping with the best aspects of OS 7.

Thanks for posting the screenshots.

I can trace my ancestry back to Accordance 3. Can anyone (not including Oaktree staff, family or pets) trace themselves back to version 1?

Extra prestige if you have owned every version (i.e. integers) from 1 to 8!
