openlp.org 1.0 released!

YES! The moment has FINALLY arrived!

We are very proud to present openlp.org version 1.0. We've waited a long time for this, and I'm not going to lie to you, we're very excited about this release. Over the last few years openlp.org has transformed from a small and seemingly insignificant open source application, to the most featureful open source lyrics projection solution (or so I've been told).

For those of you who are eager to get hold of it, you can download it from our download page.

Please take this opportunity to spread the word about openlp.org.

Finally, I personally would like to extend a BIG thank you to Derek Scotney (my partner in crime, I mean, development), Jonathan Corwin (he likes to break openlp.org and report the bugs to us, hence becoming our lead tester), David Bunce (heading up support, taking time to respond to people's questions about openlp.org), Richard Banks (web hosting, and this brilliant new site design), and all the rest of the folks in the community that have helped us get to where we are today.

And finally, a word from the Word of Life:

 33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
          How unsearchable his judgments,
          and his paths beyond tracing out!
 34 "Who has known the mind of the Lord?
          Or who has been his counselor?"
 35 "Who has ever given to God,
          that God should repay him?"
 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things.
          To him be the glory forever! Amen.

Romans 11:33-36 (New International Version)
