Someone in my lug has actually made up some really nice 4.1 .deb files,
and I've been sort of itching to try them, but I'm really unsure about
what exactly the differences are between 3.1 and 4.1 and what I should
expect to see change if I do switch over. Is anyone here knowledgeable
enough about the differences to give a reasonably lucid explanation to a
(pretty much) DocBook newbie? Of course, just a pointer to a URL (it must
exist somewhere) would be fine...
