The New Old American Standard Version

I'm sure most of you know about the New American Standard Bible (Update) that was released in 1995. But there is a new edition of the 1977 New American Standard Version now (thanks to JH for the link and information). It is the "The Holy Bible NASB 1977 Modernized." Currently, The Lockman Foundation has only released it for the Kindle. According to the website:
ninety-nine archaic English words such as, "Thy", "Thee", "doth", "morrow", and similar have been modernized to improve readability. No other changes have been made to this 1977 text of the NASB.
The Kindle version includes a list of all the words that have been changed. I will try to keep watch and post notice if paper versions are published.

A Catalogue of Books in the Library belonging to the Monthly Meeting in Bristol, 3rd edit. - 1860
The Standard Edition of the English New Testament of the Genevan Version - 1864

Thank you!
