This question already has an answer here:

Am trying to install Bibletime v2.9.2. I purged v2.8, added the crosswire ppa (ppa:pkgcrosswire/ppa) to my software sources and did a sudo apt-get update.

Since I don't have a fast internet connection, I wanted to know the Bibletime version available before installing it via terminal. I'd be glad if anyone can point me in the right direction.
