Tacoma, Washington (January 18, 2005) â OSoft.com, a leading
provider of open source documentation solutions, announced today that it has
released the Apache 2.0 documentation in the ThoutReaderâ¢ format.
The ThoutReaderâ¢ is an open source documentation platform that allows
software developers to browse, search, bookmark, and append all their open source
documentation as well as favorite reference books in one standard format, at
the same time - even off-line.
Building your Library
âThe Apache documentation is a great addition to our expanding library
of free open source documentation,â says Mark Carey, OSoft president.
âIn the next six months, we will be adding hundreds of open source documentation
packages as well as over 500 best-selling commercial publications.â Currently
developers can find content for Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Perl, BSD, XML, and
VoIP at www.osoft.com.
There is an overwhelming amount of open source resource materials available
to the developer, but the content is in different formats and different locations,
making information hard to find when, where, and how you need it. "Open
source application documentation often lacks organization and consistency,â
states Paul Jones, Novell Developer Services. âThe ThoutReaderâ¢
increases productivity by being able to search across not only application documentation,
but also related books which show tips, tricks, screen shots, and examples,
all in the same coherent fashion.â
OSoft provides a unique service for ThoutReaderâ¢ users. When updates are
posted to their site, OSoft automatically pushes out the new content to existing
users, providing them with the latest content. This applies not only to free
content, but commercial content that might include errata changes.
Apache documentation in the ThoutReaderâ¢ format is now available from
OSoft Inc. is headquartered in Tacoma, Washington. Its vision is to have the
ThoutReaderâ¢ become the standard platform through which Open Source documentation
and training content is delivered.
