Joomla Bible Study 9 is here

Today, we're pleased to announce a new beta release of the Joomla Bible Study component, 6.2.0 beta 2.  This version of the component is in pre-production status, so please don't install it on a live site. We'd be delighted if installed it and report any bugs on the forum for 6.2.

Download {phocadownload view=file|id=75|text=6.2 beta 2|target=s}.

Note:  Please only install on a test server and be prepared to remove this installation and all the tables because the final release version won't install properly otherwise.
