Packt is pleased to announce the inaugural list of Most Valued People from Open Source Content Management Systems. This is a new feature of the Open Source CMS Award and is designed to recognise the contributions to projects made by individuals that often go unnoticed.
For the large majority of Open Source projects, it is the tireless contributions from enthusiastic individuals that enable its growth and adoption and these are the people that Packt feels is necessary to identify. For details of 2008's Open Source Most Valued People, please click through.Read 2008 Open Source CMS Most Valued People Announced in full
In December, we decided to enable the copy and paste feature on our eBooks. Following this announcement, we received a number of suggestions from customers who would like to see the password protection removed from our eBooks as well. With the increasing popularity of reading eBooks on portable devices, the password protection was proving to be an obstacle that prevented users from doing so.
Therefore, we have taken this feedback on board and decided to remove all password protection from our eBooks with immediate effect. If you own a Packt eBook, you can download it again from your account at www.PacktPub.com; this new copy will have no password protection. We would like to thank all customers who took the time to provide us with this feedback and we hope you are pleased with this outcome.
To celebrate this announcement, Packt has made Cameron Cooper’s Building Websites with Plone eBook available as a free download.Read Packt Removes Password Protection from its eBooks in full
