Many of you have been asking me when I will publish an updated version of the Debian Handbook… the last proper release dates back to Debian 8 Jessie !
Yes I entirely skipped Debian 9. I didn’t want this to happen again so I hired two external contributors to update the book for Debian 10 (thank you Daniel Leidert and Jorge Maldonado Ventura).
The content has been ready for a while in git but I’m so swamped with other duties that I never put out a proper release. I wanted to review everything myself but I failed at doing this. And instead of always postponing until I find the required time, I figured out it would be better just to release what we have right now and let the community do its magic (including translators that will review what they have to translate!).
So here you are. You can get the Debian Handbook for Debian 10. If you find out issues, please report them (on salsa.debian.org preferably).
There’s no paperback version yet. The print version on lulu.com is still the Debian 8 version. I will try to fix this in the coming weeks.
I hope you will enjoy it!
I returned here to donate after finishing the Jessie version (thoroughly enjoying it!), and stumbled across this blog post. What a coincidence!
Congratulations on getting the new version out there, I look forward to checking it out.
Thank you. Sincerely, great job!
