I was wondering if anyone had any input about publication dates in
printed(ish) documentation.

Currently we have:

Published by XXXX, Inc.
October, 2006
Printed in the United States of America

Since it's a new year and a new release of our software, the printed
documentation is getting a slight overhaul. In my last position, we simply
changed the published date from "October, 2006" to "January, 2007." My new
boss thought that you might write "October, 2006 January, 2007" or
something like that. What do the Internet enabled elite think?
