Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, OpenLP is an open-source worship presentation software, allowing the users to project bible chapters, media files and presentation documents.
Among others, it has features for managing songs in databases, importing PowerPoint or LibreOffice presentations, search bibles by scripture reference or phrase, has support for video playback and stop/pause/volume control and remote control of OpenLP via smartphone.
The latest version available is OpenLP 2.0.5, which has been released a while ago, bringing bug-fixes and changes.
