Friends of OpenDocument, Inc is delighted to announce the publication
of the printed edition of "Getting Started with LibreOffice 3.3",
which is now available from Lulu.com through this link:


http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/getting-started-with-libreoffice-33/14423050


All profits from the sale of this book will go to The Document
Foundation.

Huge thanks to Hal Parker for doing the work of compiling the book
ready for publication.


Sounds like a great contribution to LibO. Could we include this in one
of our official blogs? It would make more sense to have it on a blog
and critique it. Maybe ask Hal Parker for a free copy? One of our
documentation team members could have a look and write up a short
critique.

My note yesterday (quoted above) may have left an incorrect impression.
This book was compiled from the chapters on this page:
http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation

(also available from this page:
http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/documentation/

ODT and PDF of the full book are not yet linked to from the libreoffice
get-help page, but they are available from the wiki page.

Hal put the book together from those chapters, but Ron Faile did most of
the work of converting the OpenOffice.org book to LibreOffice, and
others helped with proofreading. It's a product of the LibreOffice
Documentation Team.

Friends of OpenDocument is an Australia-based organisation formed in
2005 to promote the OpenDocument format.
http://friendsofopendocument.org/

(I need to update the info on that website, and start blogging there
again, if I can ever find the time.)

Our main work to date has been to publish printed copies of the
OpenOffice.org user guides (produced by OOoAuthors) and some other
books, as well as keeping a bank account to handle money from sales and
distribute that money to the individuals or groups who write the books.
Later on, if/when The Document Foundation wishes to do its own
printed-copy publishing, that's fine with us.

Hi Jean

Thanks for the clarification. As well as thanks to all who contributed to the book, it is well appreciated. Drew is already talking about using it to show at a conference and I will be purchasing a copy online. I will also use it for show at possible future conferences once I am able to attend them. Still recovering from a couple of nasty back surgeries.

BTW ... happy new year ... in case I missed you ... and to everyone else I missed.

Marc
