**Please Note: Joomla! 1.7 is now out, and Hagen Graf has written a new manual, which is also free to download. Read all about it here.**
On the 1st of each month, the Joomla! community looks forward to one thing in particular: the Joomla! Community Magazine. But this post isn’t about the magazine. Although you’ll probably want to check it out.
One of the articles that grabbed the attentions of many readers, was an announcement by the multi-talentend Hagen Graf. He announced a free, 174 page e-book on Joomla 1.6
You heard me right. You can download the e-book “Joomla 1.6 beginner Guide” from his website, for free. (Or there’s a “webversion”, on the same site. Your choice). The book covers everything you need to known about Joomla 1.6. Of course, I didn’t read the whole thing yet, but from what I’ve seen the guide pretty much covers anything you’d want to know about Joomla 1.6
The target audience are Joomla! beginners. They’ll find the book to be quite informative and a great help in their discovery of Joomla! 1.6 But also more experienced Joomla! users, who want to get to know the “new version” a bit better, can benefit from this e-book.
You can download the book as a PDF here.
