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.

Abhijeet Chavan, Urban Insight, Inc.: I liked Krafft's precise, straight-to-the-point writing style. He makes basic as well as advanced topics readable without coming across as either condescending or cryptic. The terse footnotes are useful and supplement the text with interesting tips and resources. This is a technical book for sure, without fluff or off-topic detours, and it's packed with information. Still, Krafft manages to impart a personal feel by sharing his observations and balanced opinions. He delivers frank assessments of the strengths, weaknesses and eccentricities of a Debian system. In fact, the book even includes an appendix on how to decide if Debian is the right GNU/Linux distribution for you.
