Development continues in CVS on both lectionary code and on a new, more capable database format. That means that in the meantime, the newest code is unusable and pre-alpha.
The stable-0.13 branch is fairly usable, with lectionary tools backported. The very latest may be obtained via CVS by specifying the v0-stable tag, something like this:
cvs -z3 -d <the repository root> checkout -r v0-stable btools... read more
BibleTools 0.13 has been released in a SourceForge file release. This was sorely needed, as the last release was in February. However, as always, those interested in having the most up-to-date package are encouraged to download the package "btools" directly via CVS.

BibleTools is now over a year old if you go back to when I started writing it in Python. In the words of Keanu Reeves: whoa! Time flies. With version 0.10a, I'm adding the "a" designating BibleTools as alpha software just in case anyone missed other warnings about lack of warranty, etc. This doesn't mean anything bad about this version. It's better than 0.9 because it runs in Python 2.1, and the docs are improving. I use it all the time. Enjoy!
The King James Version is now a File download. It's the only public domain version I have right now. There is also a utility for translating Bible Works databases exported as text into Bible Tools, but if you don't have Bible Works, you can try this database in the meantime.
Bible Tools has a new home. Thanks, SourceForge and VA! Users are welcome, and developers are especially welcome. Let me know your thoughts!
