The Joomla! Documentation team is pleased to announce that the Joomla! 1.0.11 User Manual version 1.0.1 will be published on October 23 2006.

The objectives of this User Manual are to:
·      Help you to install and configure Joomla!
·      Describe the various types of Users and what their access permissions are.
·      Provide detailed instructions for both Front-end and Back-end inputting and site management within the Joomla! User framework of Authors, Editors, Publishers, Managers, Administrators and Super Administrators.

The manual’s target audience is all levels of user from Author to Super Administrator and is aimed at the newcomer to Joomla! although, more experienced users will find it useful too.
