Dear SWORD developers,

FreJND has been released in Crosswire repository thanks to Peter on
August 2015. Thanks again for that!
Several issues have been reported, but there are still unresolved. I
tried to sum up in this mail all the issues.

_*# Issue 1 : encoding issue*_

There are encoding issues, the About field contains not well-encoded
characters (see
Please set About field to (fix invalid characters, remove fax, improve

_*# Issue 2 : Duplicated fields*_

Moreover the field *History_1.20* is *duplicated* (5 times), there is a
line containing "newest toolset", that's a mistake! (and line 14 is blank)
> History_1.20=Re-made with newest toolset
> newest toolset
> History_1.20=Re-made with newest toolset
> History_1.20=Re-made with newest toolset
> History_1.20=Re-made with newest toolset
> Version=1.20
> History_1.20=Re-made with newest toolset

Please fix the .conf issues, it seems trivial.

_*# Issue 3 : offset verses ⇒ misplaced or missing verses *__*(affects
user experiment)*_

* In Jude, verse numbering is incorrect (offset +1). The chapter title
("Chapitre 1") should be displayed before the chapter NOT at verse 1
(but verse 0 as before) and so shift verse numbering. As a consequence
the last verse is missing as it does not fit the KJV.
* In Rev.22 verses 0 to 2 are incorrect (related to Rev.21 and chapter
title). Again verse numbering does not respect the OSIS and the last two
verses are missing.

First, I thought it was a new bug (recently introduced) in osis2mod or
sword engine.
But after some tests, it seems it is a simple missing in .conf! As a
consequence, it is trivial to fix!
Since version 1.19 FreJND started using NRSV versification BUT it is no
longer mentioned in the .conf file!
If you change line 14 to Versification=NRSV, the above errors will be fixed.

So please correct .conf versification issues (add Versification=NSRV and
MinimumVersion I guess) OR rebuild OSIS for KJV versification. (NRSV is
very slightly better)

Please release a 1.21 version with the corrections mentioned above! Then
you should remove FreJND from beta.

At last, domcox submitted 3 french versification schemes (see
"[sword-devel] French versification schemes" topic).
Do you plan to integrate them in the sword engine? in the next released?
