The Recipe Book is slightly outdated in parts. Or at least in one part, where it talks about using Emily Short's Plurality extension, which AFAICT isn't included with the latest version since the latest version has that kind of functionality built in directly.

As much as I want to like Inform 7, everything just seems out of sync and the worst is we don't know which parts are working and which parts are not.

When a new version comes out, it seems crucial that everything be ready at the same time. I understand that different parts are maintained by different people who do it as a hobby, but it does give a hard time to people who want to jump on the wagon.

We did overhaul the built-in extension with the new release; if there are some straggling bits that we didn't catch, those should be reported via the bug tracker, but these are accidental omissions, not an intentional lag.

Hi Emily. Would the bug tracker be the GitHub repo one or another one?

That would be the mantis site: http://inform7.com/mantis/my_view_page.php . There's a category for documentation issues.

I wanted to look up

"Writing with Inform"

and

"The Recipe Book"

but both links here on this page http://inform7.com/learn/manuals/ are down. Can someone please fix this? And maybe provide a link that works?

It's a shame the online versions are down, but you can use the downloadable versions, can't you?

Absolutely. I was able to download the text version which seems complete and up-to-date. Just a lot tougher without an html index.

The manuals should now be properly online at the Inform site.
