           Summary: Confusion with BLFS 6.1 release status
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: b-6.1-pre1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: BOOK

The current section "News" at the BLFS website
[http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/news.html] states the BLFS 6.1-pre1 is the
latest release. However following the link in that statement "LFS Website"
[http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/6.1/]brings you to the book which is

"Beyond Linux®  From Scratch
Version 6.1"

as opposed to 

"Beyond Linux®  From Scratch
Version 6.1-pre1"

Well, which is it? Is it version 6.1 or version 6.1-pre1?

There is also a grammatical error in the paragraph at the news section of the
website as shown below.


BLFS 6.1-pre1
    Bruce Dubbs - 2005/08/01

    BLFS 6.1-pre1 is now available for viewing at the LFS Website. Mirrors
should synchronize within a day. [This release is updates many BLFS packages and
is the complement to the 6.1 version of LFS.]

Note the [is] in [This release is updates.......]?

Could perhaps read [This release updates many BLFS packages and is the
compliment to the 6.1 version of LFS]

I hope info this helps and does not offend. It's just something that has been
bugging me.
