Are any books for v7 (&v6) new features planned?
Are there any books planned that will describe the new features of v7 (and v6) in a nice, organized, linear, printed, way? [I have checked the archives of mathgroup. This horse has been thoroughly beaten in the past, for example when v6 came out. But it hasn't died yet. So I'm raising my hand to continue the thrashing.] It would be REALLY nice to see a good, complete description of the very large number of new features, plus new functionality/options/attributes added to existing features, on nice large high-resolution printed pages that I could read while flipping back and forth to other pages, the index, etc. Something like the wonderful Mathematica Book (though perhaps in more than one volume to reduce the possiblity of injury anyone carrying the thing around). I would be happy to know that Dr. Trott's excellently readable and enjoyable masterworks were being updated and expanded, if that is the case. [And just to forestall the inevitable comment that has appeared in the past when kicking this equine around: Yes, certainly, only those who want the book should pay for it, it shouldn't be subsidized by all Mathematica licensees.] Thank you, David
