About two years ago, the Meson manual was published and made available for purchase. The sales were not particularly stellar and the bureaucracy needed to keep the sales channel going took a noticeable amount of time and effort. The same goes for keeping the book continually up to date.
Thus it came to pass that sales were shut down a year ago. At the time there were some questions on whether the book could be made freely available. This was not done, as it would not really have been fair to all the people who paid actual money to get it. So the book has been unavailable since.
However since an entire year has passed since then, the time has come. I'm making the full PDF manual available for personal use. You can download your own copy via this link. The contents have not been updated in more than a year, so it's not really up to date on details but the fundamentals are still valid.
Enjoy, and have a happy whatever-it-is-that-you-call-the-holiday-at-this-time-of-year.
The boring small print
Even though the book is freely downloadable it is not under any sort of an open license. You can download it and read it for personal use, but redistribution of any kind is not permitted.
