Linux Brochure Project version 1.1.0 released

The Linux Brochure Project (LBP) version 1.1.0 has been released. LBP is a GPLed Linux advocacy and publicity project which documents key Linux information in a standard-size brochure (two sides of a single letter-size or A4 sheet of paper which is Z-folded into the six mini-pages of the brochure). Release 1.0.0 was our first stable version of this important Linux publicity tool for LUGs and other Linux organizations, but it had one major limitation; only letter-size brochures could be created which limited production to North American printers. With the release of LBP-1.1.0, this limitation has been removed and A4 size brochures can be easily created by specifying PAPERTYPE=a4 as an option for the 'make' command that generates the brochure. Now the whole world-wide Linux community should be able to use this brochure, and we encourage customized versions and translations into other languages (so long as the requirements of the GPL are followed). Ultimately we plan to have a suite of brochures from around the world displayed at http://lbproject.sourceforge.net/examples.html for those who want to be famous. :-) Currently there are two customized brochures available at the above site -- a "Linus" version (for both letter-size and A4 printers) featuring famous quotes from Linus and a VLUG version that has been adopted as the official brochure of the Victoria Linux Users Group. ... read more
