Welcome to the shiny new Interchange RTFM website.
The old website was looking a little dated,
so I thought it was about time it was given a bit of a makeover.
This new website is powered by an Interchange-driven Content
Management System (CMS) which reads all of its page text and
component layout information from the database.
At the time this article was published, this website was
running Interchange version 5.5.0.
The Interchange installation will be regularly updated to
(mostly) track the latest development version.
You can discover the Interchange version currently used by this website
by hovering your mouse pointer over the "Powered by Interchange" logo,
which you will find at the end of the left-hand column,
on every page on this website.
Over the last couple of months,
I have invested a considerable proportion of my evenings and
weekends into the creation of some new
which I hope you will find useful.
The new RTFM documentation project is firmly focused on
the textual content, rather than the underlying format,
so progress has been swifter than it otherwise might have been.
I estimate that, at the time of writing, around 80% of the
documentation on this website was either brand new,
re-written or expanded upon in some way.
The documentation has been rearranged and extensively cross-referenced
to make the information easier to find.
While the new documentation is by no means complete,
I consider it good enough to go live with,
and I'll continue to create more text as time allows.
Please let me know if you find any inaccuracies,
or would like to submit some new or altered text.
There is a long todo list for the RTFM website, including polls,
RSS/Atom feeds and various other goodies that will be introduced
from time to time.
If you'd like to suggest a new feature then feel free to
get in touch.
I might even be tempted to add your request to the list.
Suggestions for future polls are also welcome.
