Release history

  • It should now be significantly easier to enter your license key.
  • The program won't "forget" the license key between updates.
  • The words of the quizzed languages are now drawn "on the fly". This should result in even better-looking fonts.
  • Various beautifications.
  • Various bugfixes.

1.7.10 (July 8, 2017)

  • Bugfix for some Hebrew and Greek forms.
  • Greek database significantly expanded.

  • Various Greek and Hebrew forms were fixed.

1.7.5 (January 13, 2015)

  • New look: We hope you like it.
  • Hebrew: The "Prepositions + suffixes" quizzes containing the object marker 'et were fixed, so that they could run to completion without giving a blank screen.
  • Hebrew: One form of the verb "sabab" had its vocalization fixed.
  • Hebrew: The quiz names were made more consistent.

1.7.4 (September 15, 2014)

  • Enhancement: Lots of Greek forms added. The total is now more than 3040 Greek forms.
  • Enhancement: Lots of Hebrew forms added. The total is now more than 2060 Hebrew forms.
  • Fix: It used to be that a few forms of the Hebrew verb QWM, though present and analyzed correctly, were present twice, and hence could indicate that a correct answer was wrong. This has been fixed.
  • Changes: Various small cosmetic beautifications.

1.7.3 (February 15, 2014)

  • The analysis of one Hebrew form was corrected (a form of Jare' was wrongly analyzed as nifal yiqtol 3ms, but which should have been both nifal yiqtol 2ms and 3fs).
  • The Spanish form 'usted' is now correctly analyzed as 2nd singular, not 3rd singular!
  • Various small cosmetic beautifications.

1.7.2 (May 24, 2013)

  • Add two more, additional products to the portfolio: One quizzing only Biblical Greek, and one quizzing only Biblical Hebrew. This is the exact same data and the exact same program as the one quizzing Biblical Languages, except for splitting it into the separate languages.
  • The 31 day free trial now gives access to all quizzes and all forms during the 31 day trial period.

1.7.1 (March 22, 2013)

1.6.4 (January 21, 2012)

  • A Hebrew form was corrected (missing holem in Qal Active Participle Masculine Singular of Naphal).
  • Some Greek participles, which were in the database, were not quizzable even though they were present. This has been corrected.
  • An issue with the random shuffling of the answers was fixed. In previous versions, the first answer was often correct -- too often. Now it is only correct around 25% of the time when there are 4 possible answers.

1.6.3 (September 24, 2011)

We are fanatical

If you find any errors, please, please, please write to us and inform us!!! We have spent countless hours on the databases, and we really, really want them to be error free.

This benefits not only you, but all other users. After all, what good is it to learn something if that something is wrong?
