Regular readers will know that we enjoy a close relationship with the Ubuntu Manual project and as such we’re pretty stoked to see the project get a shiny new website over @ There’s not much to see yet but bookmark it pronto and check back April 29th!

In other Manual related business we’ve added a “progress” bar to the sidebar of our site that easily informs you how much of the Manual has been completed so far. It’ll auto-update itself as progress stampedes on, too!

We’ll have a few other manual tip-bits coming up later, but if the manual is piquing your interest check out our interview with Manual Project leader Benjamin Humphrey and our rundown of the Alpha release of the Manual.
