The Last Chapters

Posted by Mike Driscoll (Creator)


I finished up a chapter on PyFPDF that ended up being chapter 19. I also inserted a new chapter on pdfrw, a neat library that is kind of like PyPDF2. The pdfrw package is used by rst2pdf and can also be used with ReportLab to take a pre-existing PDF and create something new with it.

I have a list of typos that I need to go through (thanks, Axel!) and fix. Once that's done, I will go through the book and check it over for issues. If you want to help, feel free to read through the new chapters or any of the others and get me some feedback. I am going to accept feedback until the end of Wednesday, June 6th. I will then take that feedback, update the manuscript and get the paperback ordered.

Any typos found after June 6th won't make it into the first version of the paperback, so now is the time to share with me if you know of any errors. I will happily accept bug reports after that date and update the eBook and paperback version for future readers though.

Thanks so much for your support. The latest version of the eBook should be available soon.
