I recently received this notice from BibleWorks:

BibleWorks 8 Has Launched!

New tools and essential references offer unequaled exegetical capabilities for enriched research of the Biblical text.

BibleWorks has launched version 8 with a tremendous array of innovative tools, essential resources and interactive capabilities! Now users can have more Bible translations (190+), 35 original language texts and morphology databases, 29 lexical-grammatical references, plus a wealth of practical reference works, giving them tightly integrated databases with powerful morphology and analysis tools. (Click here for a full list of its contents.)

Apparently, BibleWorks 8 will retail for $349. If you have BibleWorks 7, you can upgrade for $149.99. If you have BibleWorks 6, you can upgrade for $175.

I started using BibleWorks with version 5. I did not upgrade for version 6, then I upgraded for version 7. I will probably wait until version 8 before I update again. However, this may change as I read more about the new features in BibleWorks 8.

If you have never used BibleWorks, it is an excellent resource for working in the original languages of Scripture. Follow the link above for a full explanation.
