I simply never cared for the BT interface -- personal preference,
nothing more.  But that's why I got involved with GS, when I stumbled
across them both in early 2006.

2.4.1 was released last evening.  It'll be a few days before it appears
in Fedora repositories, and domcox will surely build it for Ubuntu
sometime Real Soon Now.  I put Cygwin binaries in place as well.  It
builds under Solaris as well.

Bible Gateway, mostly.  Some Crosswalk.  A couple others for one-offs.

For about the next 16 hours, this link will work:
That's symlinked to the non-obviously-named real place.

Pardon the README's somewhat hostile opener.  It's very important that
you not bother the mailing lists about this stuff.  Any questions, ask
me directly.

There is some hope that the Ubuntu repository situation will improve
soon, but it hasn't happened yet.  We don't make releases on SourceForge
of anything other than source tarballs, and volunteers do the work of
per-platform builds.
