IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WINDOWS USERS
Please note, if you're using Windows, you need to uninstall the previous version of OpenLP. We upgraded some of the components used in OpenLP and there seems to be a conflict on Windows, as reported by some users.
Yes folks, we've done it again! Here is another pre-release release of OpenLP 2.0. We're very excited to bring you OpenLP 1.9.4 Alpha 4, codename "Jumping Jonah".

Not only do we have all these new features, but a couple of our testers have started writing a reference manual for OpenLP 2, which can be seen on our new manual site. They are continuously working on it, and as they update it we update the new manual site with their latest work.
We also tried to put a lot of polish into this release, cleaning up bugs, making OpenLP work better behind the scenes, tweaking the GUI, etc. Our list of open bugs has grown since Alpha 3, but then so has our list of fixed bugs.
As part of the "polish" exercise, our Mac OS X packager has done a lot of work to fix up the errors in the OS X build. If you're an OS X user, please check our list of bugs, and let us know if you are experiencing any of them.
Head on over to the download page to get it now!
