It's here. After less than two weeks of hints and promises, Accordance 8.1 is now available for download. Like all our point releases, this new update is free to all users of Accordance 8, and is packed with enough new stuff to be well worth paying for. You can read a quick summary of what's new here. Meanwhile, I want to talk about the most obvious changes: the changes to Accordance's appearance.
First, the Workspace window features redesigned tabs which actually look like tabs, as opposed to the former push-button style tabs. The new tabs have a spacious feel, but they actually take up less vertical space than the former tabs, which should make users with small screens happier.
In the Search window, the module name and History pop-ups feature a new look, the Search for Words and Verses radio buttons have been replaced by toggle buttons, and the OK button has been replaced with a round icon button. Also of benefit to users of small screens, the minimum height of the search entry box has been reduced, giving more room for display of the text. Even the close icons for tabs and text panes have been improved.
Additional cosmetic changes were made to the icons in the Library window, the buttons in the Details workspace, and in other windows throughout the program. All in all, we think these changes give Accordance a tighter, more modern look. We hope you like them.
Throughout the rest of this week, I'll be detailing other enhancements in Accordance 8.1. There's a ton of cool stuff to talk about, and when I'm done, I think you'll be surprised at the number of improvements included in this update.
