Paratext 7.2 Released

August 22, 2011

UBS is pleased to announce the release of Paratext 7.2.

This release fixes many bugs and improves the Send/Receive functionality in ways which should be of great benefit to people with marginal Internet connections or using shared network drives.

  • Reduces the time it takes to receive project data from other team members, especially for projects with several members and in locations where access to the Internet server is slow.
  • All project data is sent and received in a way that allows resuming sending or receiving without restarting the operation from the beginning when a connection is temporarily lost.
  • Paratext clearly shows how much data remains to be transferred and whether actual progress is occurring.
  • Reduced problems with corrupted data when doing a send/receive to shared network drives.

See the Paratext information page for general information about Paratext.

New Paratext users need to complete the Paratext registration form. See About Paratext Registration for more details.

File 1495  When doing Send/Receive's Paratext 7.2. will operate correctly with other computers using 7.1 so it is not necessary to upgrade all the computers on a team at the same time.

If you have any version of 7.1 or 7.2 Beta installed and you have ticked the menu item Help > Automatically Update Paratext, Paratext will attempt to download and install 7.2 automatically starting on September 5th. If you do not want this to happen, untick this menu item.

Please review the Paratext 7.2 Release Notes and Installation Instructions before downloading files or beginning the install process.
