Psalm 1.2

Thanks again to anyone reading this that has filled in a questionnaire. I've said it before but I'm saying it again because responses are still pouring in, so I'll keep this message at the top :-)

While you're here, feel free to have a read through this blog about my project.

Today also sees another minor update to PSALM (Personal Software Aid for Leading Music). Parts of songs can now be displayed differently - so for example, choruses are in italics. The included psalm.css file can be edited to alter the way songs are displayed.

'Boolean' searches for songs (lyrics or titles/etc) are now enabled. This means you can 'or' song terms rather than just 'and'ing them (which happens by default). 'NOT' searches are not supported (yet) though. The 'Google' searching convention is followed - so you can search:

'term1 OR term2' - returns all songs containing term1, or term2

'term1 term2' - returns all songs containing both term1 and term2

'"phrase in speech marks"' - returns all songs containing the whole phrase (this can be combined with other terms too). 

And as the next release is here, heres the next Psalm from the Bible:

Psalm 2

Why do the nations conspire
   and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth take their stand
   and the rulers gather together
   against the LORD
   and against his Anointed One. 

"Let us break their chains," they say,
   "and throw off their fetters."

The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
   the Lord scoffs at them.

Then he rebukes them in his anger
   and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,

"I have installed my King 
   on Zion, my holy hill."

I will proclaim the decree of the LORD :
   He said to me, "You are my Son;
   today I have become your Father.

Ask of me,
   and I will make the nations your inheritance,
   the ends of the earth your possession.

You will rule them with an iron scepter;
   you will dash them to pieces like pottery."

Therefore, you kings, be wise;
  be warned, you rulers of the earth.

Serve the LORD with fear
  and rejoice with trembling.

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry
  and you be destroyed in your way,
  for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
  Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

And here is the new version: PSALM v1.2 . As ever, please let me know if you come across any problems.
