Maybe that's because: * Mathematica 6 was released and distributed starting in May 2007 * And this link, as of late Nov 2008, notes on its opening page News: [U]pdating the GuideBooks is taking longer than predicted. So, rather than having new versions in Summer 2008, the expected date is sometime in 2009. "Sometime in 2009"!!!! Hasn't Mathematica 6 already been replaced, as of late 2008, by Mathematica 7? It's a truly insane situation.
