*What is ARM for Palm OS?
We have recently introduced a new build of our Palm BibleReader targeted for ARM Palm devices. This build will only run on Palm units with an ARM processor and running Palm OS 5.0 or greater (and not Sony Clie). The advantage of this BibleReader is that it runs faster since it is targeted to the ARM processor. We had to make extensive changes to the BibleReader to make it run natively on ARM. Thus, this reader is still in beta. So we have changed the name of this reader to aBibleReader. This will let you have both BibleReaders installed at the same time on your Palm unit in case you run into problems with the ARM BibleReader. Also, if you have iLumina installed on your system you will need to install new home screens (iLumina NIV or iLumina ESV) as the old home screens are not compatible with the ARM BibleReader. Most users just need to install the "A" home screens.

November 30, 2007 (Help with a crash on Palm)


The Palm BibleReader version 3.69.250 (non-ARM) has been crashing a lot and causing resets of the Palm device. Unfortunately, we have not yet figured out how to make this crash repeat. The first step towards fixing a crash is getting it to repeat. If anyone has any insight to what features or books may be causing this problem we would be glad to know :) You can email us at support@olivetree.com or you can log into the Beta Forum (see below) and post to the topic "Resets with the Palm BibleReader 3.69.250" under the "BibleReader Beta and Bug Reports" section.

Thanks,
Stephen

The advantage of this BibleReader is that it runs faster since it is targeted to the ARM processor. We had to make extensive changes to the BibleReader to make it run natively on ARM.

This will let you have both BibleReaders installed at the same time on your Palm unit in case you run into problems with the ARM BibleReader. Also, if you have iLumina installed on your system you will need to install new home screens (iLumina NIV or iLumina ESV) as the old home screens are not compatible with the ARM BibleReader. Most users just need to install the "A" home screens.


May 8, 2007 (Website New Look)

We are in the process of testing some new features on our website, and are looking for some outside testing. The basic changes we've made:

  1. You can customize the website to be "device dependent" so that you can browse olivetree.com just based on your device and the features and products that will work for you.
  2. You can now build your own software bundle, and get discounts accordingly. This new discount system is already in place, and the discounts will apply to any purchases you make, once you turn on the testing mode for the site.

Please send all comments, suggestions, and feedback to support@olivetree.com.
