Well, since I complained a while ago about Blender's documentation, I guess it's time for me to point out that this issue has been addressed (though I haven't yet had time to find out how well). Google's 2007 Summer of Code funded, among other things, the production of a new tutorial. Rene Dudlfield says nice things about it, so I guess from now on it's going to be easier to learn how to use Blender. Great news!
One question, though. Why doesn't the word "documentation" appear at least once in the Blender home page?
