Rails CHM Documentation - 1.1.6

Just a quick email to let those interested know that I've posted an updated version of my CHM document that now has all the documentation from the 1.1.6 release of Rails. You can read more about it here: http://delynnberry.com/2006/10/16/rails-chm-documentation-version-1-1-6

I'm also planning on creating a pre-release version based on what is currently available in Rails trunk. So if you're currently using all the cool new features in trunk and are tired of looking at source code, keep you eyes out for that in the coming days.

Nice! I sometimes need docs offline.

Glad to hear you have found it to be useful!

This also works fine on Mac OS using chmox.

The last time I looked at Chmox it didn't have support for reading the index of the file that I generate (which I've never been able to figure out). It also doesn't have support for searching the document either.

If either of these features interest you, I suggest using Chamonix on OS X: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/28016&vid=277468.

Ah, yep, I hadn't noticed. I actually think I'd prefer a PDF version -- possible (or already exists)?

I did a quick Google search, and there does appear to be some software out there that's able to convert CHM files to indexed PDF documents. Maybe I'll spend some time investingating them tomorrow and post the results.

I just posted a version of the CHM document that has documentation from revision 5315 of Rails trunk.

If you are interested, you can download it from here: http://delynnberry.com/projects/rails-chm-documentation/.

Many thanks for this. Much appreciated.

Any chance of nifty help icon instead of the ugly one that Windows uses by default?
