Welcome to a new release of OpenSong. A quick rerelease of v1.6 because of a bug in the live presentation mode. The v1.6 release contains a few new features, some functional changes a quite a lot of fixes. Thanks to many contributers this release is already bundled with updates for most languages. New since this version is support for Italian, Russian and Slovak. A functional changes that should be noted is about the handling of slide styles. A style change slide now also overides song specific styles. Until now, song specific styles could only be overiden by using a slide specific style. The style handling has some additional improvements in general. Other new things: - A 'scripture lookup' file menu, so now it's possible to lookup a scripture reference anytime - Support partial book names when doing scripture lookups (eg. 'Phile' for Philemon) - Images in image slides are now autosized to screen by default - Speedup song loading -= 1.6.1 =- * Fix issue that was preventing adding a song to a presentation during live mode
