No edition planned for etch

Document Actions
Due to a number of reasons, there will not be an updated edition of the book for etch. I am working on a version for Lenny though.

First off, sorry for the lack of news output in the last half year. For one, there was not really anything to report, so the saying "no news is good news" applies.

I've been extremely busy with my Ph.D. research and as of late somewhat handicapped. But these are only two of the reasons why I have not produced an updated edition of my book in time for the release of Debian "etch". I've summarised other reasons in a blog post at the beginning of the year.

Since sarge's release, we have made many changes to the Debian system. Thus, I am looking forward to updating my book and to document all the new, cool stuff. Whether I will be able to do so in time for the release of lenny (the next version), only time will tell.

Noel Davis, rootprompt.org: Can you imagine a book about Debian GNU/Linux stretching to 600 pages? No, not covering any of the applications that ship with Debian, nor delving into general configuration of, say, X or Samba. Just pure Debian; that is to say, the book covers Debian-specific utilities only, in densely printed pages with hardly any screenshots. Yup, a book like that has just been published under the name of The Debian System - Concept and Techniques. Written by Martin Krafft, this is one of the most comprehensive and detailed accounts of the largest Linux distribution in existence.
