I want to suggest changing the way modules are updated so that the program will only download changes to updated modules, instead of having to download the whole module again every time. That would make the downloads go much faster, and might save Accordance some data charges.

Creating a "patch" to update each module from each prior version, or requiring the user to download multiple patches for one module, are both more complicated than our current system. I am sure this could be done, but there hasn't been a demand for it. I can see where people are using mobile data and have large modules, this would be helpful.

I think the way this worked in BibleWorks was that all the patches were against a base version, but I may be wrong about that. In any case, BibleWorks updates were in the form of patches. However, that system was developed when we were still downloading with modems over regular phone lines.
