Forge, the external module-building tool for SwordSearcher, has been updated to version, in conjunction with the release of SwordSearcher 8.

Forge is a free external module build tool for SwordSearcher. It is designed for advanced users and publishers who need to be able to import a large amount of text into a SwordSearcher module without using SwordSearcher's internal user editor. Most users have no need for Forge and should just use the integrated user module tools in SwordSearcher. Please see the Forge web page for details.

What's new in this update:
  • Significant speed improvements for large commentaries and books.
  • Support books with more than 65,535 entries. Note: if your book module has this many entries, the module file will only be readable by SwordSearcher 8.0 or later.
  • Built with SwordSearcher 8 core support code. Some improvements to verse reference recognition and fixes/improvements to word parsing for indexing.
