ETS/SBL 2012 Update and New Releases
The 2012 annual meetings for the Evangelical Theological Society and the Society of Biblical Literature wrapped up last week and the Accordance team was glad to be a part of the action. These shows are always a great time to meet a wide variety of biblical scholars, and to show everyone the latest Accordance developments.
Many people were especially interested to see our working demo of Accordance 10 on Windows. It was my first time seeing the Windows version in action as well, and I was impressed by the progress I saw. All of the main searching functions were up and running, and Accordance's trademark speed was in full effect, which is encouraging news for Windows users. We still don't have a more specific release date than 2013, but progress seems to be coming along nicely.
We also had our latest beta of the Bible Study with Accordance app on display. The new 1.6 update should be released to the iOS App Store within the next few weeks. This update includes some more great design enhancements for you to look forward to. Below is a sneak peak of just one improvement—an enhanced night mode with the Slate theme applied throughout all views.
Last but not least, we released a number of new Accordance modules at ETS/SBL. These resources are sure to get scholars, students, and international users excited. Here is the full breakdown of the new releases.
We also announced the following modules as prepub specials. Pick them up now for discounted pricing!

As you can tell, we've been pretty busy these days. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Accordance booth at ETS or SBL. It is always such a great experience to meet with our users and hear about how everyone is using Accordance in their teaching, ministry, and personal study.
