The changelog for version 2.5:

- Scrolling can be done by dragging the stylus on the text (like Moonshell)
- DSbible now has a logo/icon/titlescreen (Thanks Josiah for creating it!)
- World English Bible translation included, which has paragraph breaks and footnotes
- Footnotes and verse numbers appear in orange text (footnotes appear inline with the text)
- "Back" and "Cancel" buttons implemented all over the program
- Fixed a bug that caused the program to freeze while starting up for some people (Thanks Sebastiaan Leenders for reporting this and helping me fix it!)
- "Louis Second 1910" French translation included, and DSbible itself has been translated to French (Thanks JMS for doing both these things!)
- Loading a book is almost instantaneous
- Holding the stylus on a button in the text viewer for half a second will display a popup describing what that button does
- Bible translations and translations of DSbible can be added and removed easily by adding files or removing the files in the 'translations' and 'lang' directories.
- Bookmarked verses and search terms in the text are now highlighted
- Many minor fixes and graphics improvements have been made

And finally, the downloads!

Download DSbible 2.5:
Download the source code:

It's about 5MB zipped, 17MB unzipped, because each Bible translation is about 4MB. If you don't want it taking up so much space, you can delete one or more translations from the /bible/translations directory.

finally! it's a shame that somebody hasnt made this sooner... the kind of world we're in laughs at us reading the bible instead of playing a game... my sunday school teacher was impressed though!
Thank you for helping us help you help us all
