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.

Mark Gibbs, Network World (28 Nov 2005): This book is unusual in that it is much more than a technical discussion - it delves into the philosophy of the system, explains how someone becomes a recognized Debian developer and details the way that Debian is licensed. That's not to say the book doesn't get technical. It provides a very well-written, soup-to-nuts explanation of how Debian is organized; how to install, configure and modify the system; and how to administer and secure it. Excellent and highly recommended.
