EPUB Version of Handbook

The English version of the PC-BSD 8.2 Handbook is now available in EPUB format. You can download this version from the Handbook section of the FTP server. I’m working on the EPUB version of the Indonesian translation and it should be ready for download by early next week.

EPUB should work on most e-readers (other than Kindle). Wikipedia has a list of both software and hardware EPUB readers.

If you’re wondering what software was used to create the EPUB version, Calibre was used to convert the HTML version to EPUB and Sigil was used to cleanup any formatting errors introduced by the conversion. I originally tried to convert the PDF version, but that required a lot of formatting cleanup; there was very little cleanup required for the HTML conversion. Both applications are available in the FreeBSD ports/packages collection and Calibre is also available as a PBI. Thanks to everyone who suggested the EPUB version, gour for providing the initial Calibre conversion, and Lord Drachenbult for suggesting the HTML conversion.
