I guess some of our readers have become a bit tired of waiting and wondering when the new issue would be released. I am really sorry about the long delay, but there have been some serious financial and time issues holding up production.
We’ve come to realise that producing the magazine with only advertising and sponsors to support it is impossible. We’ve decided to change our business model slightly. We are going to run special proprietary editions of each issue with bonus articles. These special editions will be available in electronic (printable PDF) and paper versions. From this issue forward, the latest issue will be available only for purchase for a period—say one or two weeks from publication—and will be fully released afterwards for everyone, minus the bonus articles.

Frank Ingermann surprised me [Paul Vinkenoog] with a Generator Guide last week – in DocBook XML! He’d written it some time ago and recently converted it to DocBook as an exercise, because he had to learn DocBook for his work.
It needs a little updating, but I can probably commit it – and build HTML and PDF versions – within a week.
There is an example code on devshed.com forums
