digitalmars.D.announce - Tango Manual and API Reference in CHM and PDF

you can download first version of autogenerated PDF Manual and PDF API 
Reference.
There is also a CHM version which includes both, and more.

PDF is pro forma only, if somebody just NEEDS PDF format. CHM is the one to 
use. Both are up to date though.
CHM Manual has source code, highlighted, included - with line numbers etc..

For the next version I hope to have working backlinks to superclasses, maybe 
even a small D tutorial.

I'd like to hear your comments and wishes, since this is just a first 
version and it will be regulary updated after I hear some comments.

thanks

Wow, Excellent! I'll have a look at these. I'm glad I don't have to worry about doing the pdf/chm version anymore. Thanks :) -JJR

I had a peek at the CHM... it looks like it's been formatted well and properly generated... a very good start indeed. The only real complaint I have is with the content. :( After looking through it, it was disturbing to see "to be continued" and other editing comments that indicated a WIP. That's partly my fault since I'm supposed to get some of that filled. It was just painful to see a "freeze-framed" view of my negligence. :P But, thanks, this is a good motivator. It also made me look at what I think needs to be cleaned up or removed from the manual. -JJR
