What's new in ISA basic 2


15 Jun. 2011    ISA basic 2.1.5


- interlinear "Phrase" search NT did not work (since version 2.1) No problems with OT. Other search modes were OK.

(The problem does only surface when the main interlinear text has no extra variants – I continually test search functions with a text which has variants because I am working for the next version of ISA. But thanks to an email I was alerted).


12 Feb. 2011    ISA basic 2.1.4


- No real new updates for this version. Only message this version is old - moved forward.

We currently still working on the new Version "ISA 3 basic" and hope to release it somewhere mid 2011.


22 Apr. 2010     ISA basic 2.1.3


- Assist with parsing available again.  (was not available since version 2.0.8)

Updated - Strongs Lexicon - better layout (more distinctive KJV renderings).

24 Jan. 2010     ISA basic 2.1.2

  Important for [ScrTR] parsing users

- [ScrTR] Parsing updated from 1.0 to 1.1
With the parsing of the verbs, the second letter which normaly indicates Mood or Participle was not correct. This is now fixed.
The parsing included with the old WHNA text has no problems.


2 Dec. 2009     ISA basic 2.1.1


- export function Translations / Notes


10 Oct. 2009    ISA basic 2.1


Due to copyright claims we had to replace the WHNA text. We now temporarily replace it with Scriverners Textus Receptus 1894. At a later date we plan to add the NA/USB variants as a comment or popup window.

For people who have already ISA basic 2.0.8 installed and want to keep the WHNA text, can install version 2.1 and still use the WHNA. But if they want to use the ScrTR they have to uninstall the old version first.



- WHNA to ScrTR (Scriveners Textus Receptus 1894) (basis of KJV or AV)
- Strong
- Parsing


- [ScrTR] CGTS version update 1.4.1 to 1.5 (adapted for ScrTR text)
- [ScrTR] CGES_id version update 2.2.1 to 2.3 (adapted for ScrTR text)

- [WLC] CHES 2.0.1 to 2.0.2 some corrections.
- [WLC] Strong 1.0 to 1.0.1 some typo corrections no numbers were changed.

After extensive testing and comparing with different search engines the following problems were found and fixed.

Searching interlinear with more than one word-cell (phrase etc) did not find all occurrences.

Fixed Words in italics in CLV and YLT translation could not be found. (but did work in ISA basic 2.0 RC1)
tested ok Searching with one word with translation works fine, also in the previous versions.
tested ok Searching with more than one word in one interlinear cell works fine, also in the precious versions.

About the Hebrew fonts:
The WLC and WLC_v uses unicode fonts. This means that any Hebrew unicode font can be used.
To be able to show the WLC with vowel correctly you need to follow the instructions when you start the ISA program for the first time (for XP).
ISA uses standard Times New Roman for the Hebrew but Arial can be used also.

The best looking font for the WLC and WLC_v is: Ezra SIL.
But there is one drawback and that is: it is very slow. Drawing of this font is about ten times slower that of the unicode fonts Arial or Times New Roman.
