OpenLP 2.9.2 aka 3.0 Beta 1 - Persistent Peninah

As the song says "Come now is the time to - test a new version of OpenLP!"

Apart from some select as-yet implemented features, this beta contains all the features that will be in the final release of OpenLP 3.0. This beta release should be stable enough for people to try it out and report back any bugs they encounter. Please make sure you know how to generate a debug log file and submit a log file when something goes wrong.

Warning

Installing this version of OpenLP will override any other installation of OpenLP you already have. Please make a backup of your data!

Of course there are a ton of bug fixes across the board, including fixes in some of the song importers, fixes in handling videos, presentations as well as fixes to the web Bibles.
