The ArcMap Mapbook Project (shortname 'arcmapbook') is an open source and 
volunteer effort to extend, enhance, and fix the bugs in the ESRI developer 
sample, DS Mapbook.

ArcMapbook installation & removal should be as simple as running the _INSTALL 
and _UNINSTALL batch files. For upgrades it is a good idea to unsintall the 
old version first; existing map series will be unaffected.

Mapbook for ArcMap 9.3, Release 2011 October 19

Improved installation for Windows 7 and Vista, plus including the documention
and examples. There are no functional changes from the 2009 release, meaning
there is no need to upgrade if you already have a working mapbook install. 

This release doesn't contain source code. For that please see an older release,
or (better) check out from subversion --

Minimal Mapbook for ArcMap 9.3, Release 2010 November 30

This is a minor release. It's main purpose is to test:

    a) minimal packaging (no docs or examples or source code)
    b) fix for missing toolbar issues on 64 bit systems

Mapbook for ArcMap 9.3, Release 2009 February 11

This is a fullscale merge with the upstream official ESRI release for ArcGIS 9.3.
The main differences between Arcmapbook and DS Mapbook in this release are:

 * _INSTALL and _UNINSTALL updated for Vista, though it still may not work
   reliably for everybody. Thank you for providing a
 * _UNINSTALL.bat removes mapbook registry entries
 * register_component_category.reg modified to accommodate 64bit Windows XP
 * More documentation and tutorials
 * Organised and searchable bug list
  ( Don't forget to widen search
  to include closed issues when looking for solutions!

Mapbook for ArcMap 9.2, Release 2007 October 26

The main reason for this release is to bundle the slightly improved un/install
with the main code. Changes from March release are:

- improved installation and removal usability (moved un/install.bat to top folder)

- initial check-in of Jerry Chase's customisation of Mapbook (Customized DS Map
  Book Manual.doc). NOTE: actual code is not yet implemented in arcmapbook,
  you'll have to pull it out of the doc yourself. Jerry's doc includes
  instruction and code. Outline of added functionality: 1. The ability to
  control the extent of the locator frames: a. Scaled Indicator: scale by the
  percentage of area of the record in focus b. Scaled Local Indicator: scaled by
  the percentage of the area which includes the record in focus and all records
  contiguous to it c. Index 2 Indicator: the ability to control extent of
  indicator frame by the area of a secondary index which is tied to the index of
  the record in focus (State in which a county is located). 

- Added to pause to (un)install batch files so any error messages can be seen.
  _UNINSTALL.bat now deletes Mapbook registry keys

Mapbook for ArcMap 9.2, Release 9.2 2007 March 13

This release is a wholesale merge of Larry Young's upstream release of 
2007-March-13[*] with our local documents. From Larry's comments, there are a lot 
of fixes to the Export routines.

Almost every file had dozens of changes, though >90% are just line prefixes (e.g. 
73:... to 86:...). so I probably missed things.

If you are currently using DS Mapbook from the 9.2 developer sample kit, you 
should upgrade to this release. 

If you've already installed the March-13 version from the ESRI support forum, 
ignore the 'Visual_Basic' folder, the only value added stuff this package is the
