The SWORD library is listed here:


It now uses upstream version 1.7.3.
There's new upstream versions available.
Xiphos cannot be updated to the newest upstream unless there's a newer
Some bugs cannot be fixed unless there's a newer lib sword.
So it is due an update.

I thought to start working on this, and upgrade it to version 1.7.4.
upstream, initially, before moving on to a still newer upstream version. So
things get done step by step. I like this careful approach.

The current 1.7.3. packaging is here:
git at salsa.debian.org:pkg-crosswire-team/sword.git

The updated (1.7.4) packaging is here:

I have tested the updated libsword on Debian sid. It works well there.
BibleTime works with it, it displays Bibles and can install Bibles.

If there's suggestions for improvement, or corrections, please let me know.
Else this updated package will be uploaded to Debian.

Thanks, guys!
