If you are next working on Quickbook, you might help those who easily get
muddled by including the version of Quickbook used to generate the document
somewhere (perhaps on the "Last edited..." line.). It would be useful to
have point versions too - 1.6.2 say.
Shall I post a Trac item for this and ISBN...?
The docs line
"quickbook 1.5 declares the version of quickbook the document is written
for. In its absence, version 1.1 is assumed." could usefully make even
clearer that this affects what features can/must be used, and link to the
helpful changelog page.
And I note in passing that the copyright dates are way out of date, and the
authors list might be updated too ;-).
PS I am now revising/extending the Boost.Math docs. That should give it a
bit of an workout!
