you probably noticed that I skipped the issues of March and April of my
newsletter. That's because I have been very busy with the work on the
Debian Adminstrator's Handbook.
That's why after 5 months of hard work, I'm pleased to announce that
the Debian Administrator's Handbook is now available, both as a
beautiful 495-page paperback and as an ebook (PDF, EPUB, MOBI formats).
The paperback's usual price is €44.90, but there's a special deal for
the launch. You can get it with a 10% discount until May 18th. Hurry up
and get it from Lulu.com.
The ebook is available for immediate download
on the book's website. There's the PDF file corresponding to the
printed book but also an EPUB version suitable for smartphones and
ebook readers. You can also find a Mobipocket version for Kindle and
other ebook readers that do not support EPUB (the open standard).
And of course, you can read it online.
Since the book is released under a set of free licenses (GPL-2+ /
CC-BY-SA 3.0), it's already available in Debian Unstable, just apt-get
install debian-handbook if you're a sid user. There's also a git
repository (git clone
git://anonscm.debian.org/debian-handbook/debian-handbook.git) if you
want to contribute (I'm particularly interested by volunteers to
translate it into as many languages as possible).
I hope that you will enjoy the book and I'm eagerly awaiting your
feedback (but don't expect quick replies, I'm going to take a much
needed one-week vacation).
PS: Next month I'll resume sending my traditional newsletter, promised!
