This short 9 minute video gives a first look at some of the more impressive features of the new Logos 5.0 for Mac.  Based on my use of 5.0, I am super excited to finally see some major speed improvements and feature parity with Windows.  This is a tremendous leap forward and what Mac users have been waiting to see.  Kudos to the Logos team of developers.  This is also visually impressive with much sharper graphics and text.  Again, another area showing tremendous improvement from 4.0.
