PalmBible+ 1.1 Released

PalmBible+ is a Bible reading program for Palm OS based on Poetry Poon's BibleReader project. This release of PalmBible+ adds several new features.

In addition, I've released a package of BibleConverter. This is unchanged from Poetry Poon's BibleConverter, and requires a Java2 JRE to run. The bibles page at includes more details on the use of BibleConverter.
