Hmm. There's an interesting question. I've e-mailed Murray Stokely, who
still does work with FreeBSD Mall, to ask what their publication plans for the
printed handbook are. I know they publish at intervals of a year or two, but
I'm not sure when they will do so next.
There are also other printed FreeBSD books from a number of publishers,
including Absolute BSD by Michael Lucas, a member of the FreeBSD documentation
team. That's also likely growing a little long in the tooth, and I have some
hope he's working on a new addition in the post 6.x world.
