1.6 and 1.7 should work fine even simultaneously. 1.7 has new
~/.bibletime config directory while 1.6 uses the kde defaults, they
don't know about each other. But if they are installed together the
binaries should be named differently, e.g. bibletime16 and
bibletime17. I haven't tested this but I suppose so. I have 1.7 in a
development directory and every time I leave the app open, close the
kde session and open it again, bibletime crashes in startup. I guess
it's because kde tries to start "bibletime" and it opens
/usr/bin/bibletime" instead of
"[something]/build/install/bin/bibletime". Different binary names
would probably fix that.
