I think that the documentation should be split (back out) into separate
books -- tutorial, reference, release notes, etc. It is too unwieldy as
it is. The release notes at least should be separate -- I was rather
pissed off when I discovered that what I had printed out included
changes for releases I had no interest in. If the documents have been
amalgamated to suit a publisher then I feel even more agrieved -- I
resent having to pay for padding and resent the waste of paper. With a
duplex printer the documentation fills two binders; printed simplex it
would be more like four!
