We made some good progress on "Windows 8.1 Book" this week, finishing a lengthy Basic Navigation chapter, getting started on the Mail chapter, and implementing a new topics request feature on the site. "Windows 8.1 Book" is now over 260 pages long and the 1.0 release is on schedule for early 2014.
This week's updates include:
Here's an early and incomplete first look at the Mail chapter, which of course covers the Mail app and email account management in Windows 8.1.
Here's a second, probably complete look at the Basic Navigation chapter. This is most likely a first draft quality version of the chapter, though I'm curious whether we'll be moving content around later as the book matures.
As promised, I picked up a Barnes & Noble NOOK e-book reader, the inexpensive NOOK Simple Touch, this past week so I could "Windows 8.1 Book" on the platform.
