In addition to the original versions of the manuscript ”A Brief Introdicution to Neural Networks”, there are now versions in German and English, that are optimized for reading with electronic devices.
The original version is the two-column layouted one you've been used to. The eBookReader optimized version on the other hand has one-column layout. In addition, headers, footers and marginal notes were removed.
For print, the eBookReader version obviously is less attractive. It lacks nice layout and reading features and occupies a lot more pages. However, using electronic readers, the simpler lay-out significantly reduces the scrolling effort.
During every release process from now on, the eBookReader version going to be automatically generated from the original content. However, contrary to the original version, it is not provided an additional manual layout and typography tuning cycle by the release workflow. So concerning the aestetics of the eBookReader optimized version, do not expect any support
