Where is Slackbook 3.0?


The book on www.slackbook.org has been threatening to update to version 3.0 since about 2005. What's going on? Has the project been abandoned? It would be nice to have a new, shiny, well-maintained book for Slackware, and the current one is pretty good, but it is outdated. I'm curious about the current state of our book.

Rather than having versions like 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, wouldn't it be good if the slackbook followed Slackware releases? The next one could be version 13.1 (or 13.2/14.0 if necessary), and when the next Slackware comes out, the book could be updated a bit, polished, updated for changes in the new Slackware, and then released as slackbook 13.2/14.0. It's just a suggestion, but I think it might make it easier to see which versions of Slackware the book applies to.

Thanks in advance for any information

Darn. I guess all we can do is wait. Oh well, thank you, Dugan.
