What's new in this version
This is Version 1.0
The purpose of this version is to transfer the ePMbook to its
"live" environment at http://www.epmbook.com.
Content has not been changed from Version 0.9. The core content
is complete in its first draft.
Now is a good time for readers to send us feedback. The Readers' Questionnaire is accessible
by a button in the header.
Two new buttons appear at the bottom left of the screen.
- Printing using the
browser's print facility can be a problem as the screen
is divided into "frames". With most browsers,
the ePMbook's print button will select the correct frame
- If you find it
difficult to read the ePMbook using a small screen, you
can use the magnify button. This will open the current
text page in a separate window which can therefore use
the full screen. You may close this extra window when you
no longer need it.
- In line with your comments, we have introduced a new
style with smaller font sizes which should be easier to
use. Let us know if you find this less acceptable. Font
sizes are also based on the default you have set for your
browser. You may prefer to change the default or adjust
the size while viewing the ePMbook.
- Some of the other styles have been changed. In
particular, hyperlinks are not now underlined. Look for red text where there is a
hyperlink you have not visited recently or green text where there is a link
you have visited.

- Index Diagram - the diagram
that was hidden in the Project Management Overview has

button in the footer.
- Chapter Title - keep a track on which section you are
looking at with the Chapter Title immediately above the
main text window.
- New index of downloadable files
- accessed from the "Introduction" section of
the left-side menu.
