New LDS Translation

Apparently, the LDS church is working on a new translation of the New Testament. I haven't found much information yet, but it is mentioned on this blog. It will be 15 volumes, combined with commentary and appears it will be called the BYU rendition. I'll post more information when/if I get it myself.

Modern American Standard Version

I don't have much at all about this version - perhaps you can help? It is mentioned on the FAQ page at the World English Bible site (here). There it mentions that Dr. Maurice Robinson is working on an update to the American Standard Version that he calls the Modern American Standard Version. Anyone know if this project is underway, finished or abandoned?

Update (07-03-2008). Dr. Robinson stated that this project was abandoned in favor of a completely new modern English translation from the Byzantine Textform.

Public Domain Version of the Essential New Testament in Modern English

Not to be confused with the Essential New Testament by Dennis Beatty, et al. This version is just of John, Ephesians and some selected verses. This is a copyright free translation available for download with instructions for printing. Find it over there. Thanks to William Chamberlin for this one.
