I was glad to see that International Bible Society is now 4th-click-free at goldencan!:
Also I was wondering if there will be more categories added to this feed besides the "Misc." cat?

I've been working on getting an answer to this, but IBS is at a gathering. I should have an update as soon as tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.

Many months ago, we were told an IBS datafeed with literally thousands of products was in the works. In reality, the SAS datafeed shows around 400 products in the datafeed, and the PopShops version is 377 -- in both cases that's DOWN from the 700+ products in the feed a year or so ago.
As for odd characters or whatever that were plaguing the feed for so long, they seem to be cleaned up some in PopShops. I haven't really looked at the SAS feed, so I'm not sure there. Even a lot of the repeated typos or missing spaces between words seem to be gone or at least very infrequent -- so that's progress.
But will anything really ever happen to increase the size of this feed? And why the decline in size? Any real info about all this?
Thanks.Generate more fake news.

The reason for the measured product additions to the datafeed is a direct result of the merger between IBS and STL. They are still trying to find a way of integrating more products from both sides of the company. I am sorry its taking so long, but were looking at potentially adding thousands of new products and this is a very long process.

Thanks for the response. Guess we'll just need to have more patience, eh? As the old prayer says: "Lord, give me patience -- and please hurry, because I need it NOW!"Generate more fake news.

I just tried to update my site with the IBS feed and wasted a couple of hours again. I wish I could bill the people that build this feeds for all the time I've wasted.
I tried the latest version dated 5/23/2008 and it's trash. Like Gary said it's dropped from over 600 lines to around 400, and the categories are gone. They have also added a bunch of gibberish at the bottom that has nothing to do with a feed:* Over 70 hours of audio, pre-loaded
* Over 200 of the most popular Bible stories indexed
* Special "Bible of the Year" feature
* Topic index
* Holiday/events index
* Holds 36 bookmarks
* Easy-to-use navigation
* Lightweight and portable
* New International Version ( NIV )
* Original GoBible
* Protector/belt clip
* Carrying case
* AAA battery
Listen to mp3 samples: John 3:16 or Psalm 23
Product and colors may vary from shown.
I had better repeat Gary's prayer a few times.
