A New Update and a New Widget

Accordance has now been updated to version 7.0.3. The updater is available for free download to all users of version 7.

Accordance 7.0.3 squashes a number of minor bugs and answers several recent user requests. For example, the version number has now been removed from the name of the application itself, making updates less cumbersome, and making life easier for those who launch Accordance from within various macros and scripts. In response to requests to be able to add timeline items prior to 3000 B.C., we've now extended the Timeline back to 4000 B.C. and included an Early Bronze I archaeological period.

Without a doubt, the biggest new feature is the release of a new Dashboard widget called AccUpdater. The AccUpdater widget is designed to help you keep up to date with the latest versions of any Accordance modules you own. Just click the Check button and the widget will consult a database on the Accordance web-site and return any modules you own for which updates are available.

You can then click on the orange arrow button for information about where to find the update.

In case you weren't aware of it, this is now our second widget: the first being a cool little verse insertion utility that lets you look up verses (even more than one at a time!) in any installed Accordance Bible text and automatically paste those verses into your documents. If you haven't used the verse insertion widget, be sure to try it out as well.

Not only more than one at a time, but also in any Bible version you own in Accordance!

This is great stuff. However--and I guess there is probably a better place to put this than right here in the comments, but anyway--would it be possible for y'all to name the updater .dmg (etc.) files with "Accordance" before the version number? It makes it easier to find them in my download folder ... "7.0.3_updater" may make sense to you on your server, but in a crowded downloads folder it's a little cryptic.
