What's New

* New Analyze Verses feature! Determine word use counts for any range of Scripture, and visualize it for easy identification of the themes.

* Bible searches can now use Regular Expressions! Just wrap the expression in the REGEX() command, for example:
REGEX(\b[Aa]fter\W+(?:\w+\W+){1,6}days\b)

* Bible searches can now be diacritic insensitive; thus, searching a Spanish Bible for Jesus will find verses with either Jesus or Jesús. Also, searching a Greek Bible for Κυριος will find verses with either Κυριος, Κύριος, or Κύριός!

* Design updates for Big Sur and a new icon.

* Native support for Apple Silicon Macs.
