IMO yes. the existing tutorial is (a) based on a really old version (b) 
is in html form and (c) uses French example screens.

(a) needs no elaboration.  (b) means that I can't conveniently print it 
out for inclusion in one of my many ring binders. (c) could cause 
confusion at some point.

This is by no means a criticism of the authors/translators of the work.
They have at this moment created the most useful work available in the 
genre. But I still hope for a tutorial that is more or less recent and 
in pdf form. So those working on such should carry on!  

Meanwhile I have downloaded the four html files that comprise the 
current tutorial and will print them out. If time permits I may take a 
shot at putting it into pdf form.
